Fordyce spots also termed Fordyce granules   are visible sebaceous glands that are present in most individuals. They are not associated with any disease or illness, nor are they infectious but rather they represent a natural occurrence on the body. No treatment is therefore required unless the individual has cosmetic concerns. Persons with this condition sometimes consult a dermatologist because they are worried they may have a sexually transmitted disease especially genital warts or some form of cancer. Some diseases may appear similar to Fordyce spots such as sexually transmitted diseases.

Found a suspicious spot on your penis and starting to freak out? Don't stress! Just like the rest of your body, it is perfectly normal to occasionally get spots on your genitals. Dr Roger Henderson looks at the symptoms of the different types of penile spots, so you will know when to chill out and when to hotfoot it to your local sexual health clinic:.

But while anything amiss on your penis might be sexually transmitted, they could just as easily be a hair follicle or a skin rash, so it's worth getting clued up.
Peyronie's disease is when you have a curved or bent penis. It is caused by scar tissue forming along the shaft of the penis. This causes painful erections and a bend or curve, usually about halfway along the penis. The change in shape is usually only obvious when the penis is erect. Peyronie's disease is more common than you might think.
More often than not, it will be something that is far less serious but a condition you will want to get checked out nevertheless. Here are just some of the non-infectious and infectious causes your doctor may investigate. A non-infectious penile skin condition is one that you cannot get it from or pass it to another person. While this shouldn't suggest that you can ignore it, a non-infectious skin condition tends to be less serious than an infectious one. While more irritating than problematic, the condition may be caused by harsh chemicals, abrasion, or an allergen your doctor can help identify.
