Pearly Penile Papules Are Common

The bumps in your photo look like pearly penile papules (PPP), which are very common, particularly in young men. They are benign and shouldn't cause you any pain or discomfort. Nevertheless, if they bother you, they can be removed by a CO2 laser. Please consult a board-certified dermatologist to have your bumps evaluated and possibly removed.
