What are Pearly Penile Papules (PPP)?


Pearly penile papules are small dome-shaped or projection like bumps that are located just below the head of the penis. They are usually arranged circumferentially and they have the same colour as your skin.

Pearly penile papules are actually a normal variant of penile anatomy. Although they are often mistaken as sexually transmitted lesions. These bumps are present since young. They are not a disease. They do not pose for any cancer risks or abnormality. They are just harmless bumps that occur in some men.

They are quite common and tend to regress with age. Around 38% of men under 25 have them. However, only 11% of men above 50 have them. 

PPP is more common among uncircumcised men as compared to circumcised men. 42% of uncircumcised men have it as compared to 27% of those who are circumcised.

Are Penile Bumps harmless?

How do I tell if the Penile Bumps are harmless?

Pearly Penile Papules (PPP) VS Genital Warts!

Many men mistake PPP for genital warts. Warts are flesh coloured cauliflower-like growths that are transmitted sexually and are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). PPP are smaller, more neatly arranged and not dried out in appearance.

PPPs do not grow larger, does not grow in one particular spot, and they do not cause any pain or itch. The PPP is harmless to you and also harmless to your partners. It is not an STD (Sexually transmitted disease). There is no risk of transmitting it to others.

Genital warts are contagious STDs, an STD screening & STD treatment is highly recommended for genital warts.

But I still want to remove them!

Pearly Penile Papules Removal

Some men find it unsightly and would prefer to have them removed. Some of the most effective ways to remove them are using carbon dioxide laser or going for electrosurgery.

At Dr Tan & Partners, we provide treatment for Pearly Penile Papules (PPP) using electrosurgery. 

Before the removal, our doctor will examine you to make sure that they are truly PPP and not other lesions. He will then apply a numbing cream on the area with PPP and leave it on for a few minutes. Once the area is numb, the doctor will use a machine that will gently burn off the PPP with a heated metal tip. The process itself is painless and will only take about 15 - 20 minutes. Healing is also very quick and most patients recover within a week.
