These growths occur on the penis for reasons that are unknown. Many times they will cover the whole circumference of the penis and look like small, wart-like growths. Unlike warts or tumors, this type of growth is not caused by a virus or a cancerous disease state. This is a reassuring fact for those that are worried that they may pass this skin issue on to their partners.
Pearly peniles papules happen because the body starts to produce cells from the skin of the penis in rapid succession. Unlike cancer that causes a tumor that requires a complex blood supply, these growths simply stop enlarging when they reach a certain point. This allows the body to remain healthy, although the growth can look quite similar to many common sexually transmitted diseases, such as Herpes.
For many men, these growths can be difficult to discuss with their partners. It's best to approach the subject before participating in sexual activities. When done in this manner, partners can be put at ease that they are not being exposed to an illness that may not have any cure. Penile papules are not contagious, and partners need to be told that up front, before engaging in sexual activity.
It is most important to understand that having this skin disorder does not mean that a man is more apt to develop a more serious health concern. Many men go on to live many years and have satisfying sex lives. Having an open dialogue with sexual partners will help to ensure that men with this skin disorder have sexual encounters that are enjoyable.
