Major TMI question about my hubby

Ok so a couple weeks ago it started out as a little bump kinda looked like it was under the skin on his penis. Now a couple weeks later its gotten bigger (about the size of a pencil eraser) and looks like its going to pop any second.

wait..he just popped it, and white "puss" came out hes said it looked like when you pop a pimple.

1st im the only one hes ever had sex with and he hasnt cheated so its not an STD

Anyone know what this could be

  • Molluscum contagiosum is form of papules, which is very common, but must be supervised by doctor. They are pinkish-white round lumps, each about 1–5 mm in diameter, and are caused by a virus.
    Hair follicles are a normal and are usually found on the underside of penile shaft. They may be visible or only felt as small lumps in the skin. They are recognized by having a hair arising from them.Pearly penile papules (described above as very normal condition)
    Fordyce spots are small (1-5mm) bright red or purple papules that can appear on the penis or testicles. They usually affect younger men, and appear in crops. They are painless and not itchy, but are embarrassing because of their appearance.

  • yep, papules. nothing to worry about

  • Doubtful its molluscum contagiosum. My daughters both have that & the pimple-like things have just a hard center, not a bunch of puss coming out. I have to pop them all the time, so I know.
