One way of identifying the pearly penile papules is through the appearance of bumps that are dome shaped, fleshly coloured surrounding the male genital organ. The condition is known in various names and usually abbreviated as PPP. Just as many of the discovered medical conditions pearly penis papules have a few scientific names that can be used in identifying it. The names include Hirsutoid Papillomas, Hirusites Papillaris Genitalis or Hirusites Coronae Glandis. In essence the PPP is a condition that affects the male genitalia but at times disappear on its own –but with a high risk of appearing back later on in life.
The condition is not sexually transmitted neither is it contagious. In order to differentiate the condition with other presumably sexually transmitted conditions it is good to note that PPP only appears on the corona of the penis or in some instances on either side of the Fraenulum. Therefore if you notice the bumps in any other parts of the penis then you need to get a medical check up to confirm the condition. There are many forms of treatment that can be used including the natural treatments. The most common effective methods of treatment are based on the removal of the PPP. Studies done indicate that the condition is more prevalent in male who are not circumcised. However, this is just an opinion yet to be completely proven through scientific means.
The condition usually affects males and the cost of treatment will depend on the kind of treatment method that is going to be used. The surgical methods of treatment can cost up to an average of $3000 but the natural remedies cost much less. There are other conditions that are almost similar to the pearly penile papule disease such as the genital skin tags and the genital warts or HPV, Fordyce spots (this is a form of pearly penile papules that appears on the shaft) and the sebaceous glands prominence.
The age group that is usually affected is males between 16-45 although once it disappear on its own there is a high chance of appearing back later on in life. The causes are not known but the condition is harmless with only a certain discomfort during sexual intercourse. The psychological affects of the conditions are best describe by the suspicions that overwhelm women sexual partners; they tend to presume that the condition is a disease that is either contagious or it is a sexually transmitted disease. In actual sense medical studies have proved beyond reasonable doubts that the condition is not harmful to the affected.
The symptoms of PPP vary from individual to individual depending on the skin tone. In most cases the Pearly penile papules appear as white bumps or as pink coloured bumps which is referred to as pink pearly penile papules. But is imperative to take tests to affirm the condition which can be confused with few of the others penile disorders discussed above. Even though the causes of the conditions are still unknown there is wisely accepted belief in the medical circles that PPP comes about from the blockage of sebaceous glands. Also there is association of the condition with masturbation, papilloma virus and the most common being circumcision with the causes of PPP.
