Most men and their partners become concerned that these papules can lead to a more serious health concern.
Luckily for men that have experienced this skin disorder, the news is very positive. Having pearly penile papules is not a serious condition. Because the disorder is benign and does not lead to any ill health effects down the road, the most disconcerting issue associated with having growths is appearance. Many men are worried that having papules on the penis will cause issues in their sex lives.
Some men may be concerned about the look and texture of their penis. Others are concerned that sexual satisfaction will be adversely affected in both partners. These facts lead men to search for methods to remove these skin growths permanently from the penis. There are a number of home remedy ideas that are offered on the internet, but the safest and most effective way to have them removed is to see a doctor for surgery.
The newest treatment option available for pearly papule removal is by a CO2 laser. This laser will eliminate all of the skin tags that are a result of this skin condition. The procedure is relatively safe, and anesthetics ensure that pain is kept to a bare minimum. Several dermatologists can perform this procedure right in their offices, and many patients return to work the same day. Most men handle the procedure very well.
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. Because the laser does disintegrate the tissue in the papules, there will be open sores around the head of the penis. This could lead to infections in some men having the treatment. However, most men recover very easily and without any side effects other than soreness at the surgical site.
If surgical procedures are your choice for dealing with pearly penile papules, consult a doctor for more information. Only a consultation with a doctor will let you know if you are a good candidate for surgical removal. If surgery doesn't end up being an option for you, your doctor can discuss alternatives for living with these benign lesions.
