Male Organ Bumps from Seborrheic Keratosis Are Benign

Male Organ Bumps from Seborrheic
Keratosis Are Benign
“Uh-oh! What’s that?” This is a sentence no guy wants to utter while
conducting a routine male organ health inspection—or even when just
happening to glance at his equipment in the mirror—but it’s one that does
come up from time to time. Often, the aberration that causes this
exclamation is due to the discovery of new male organ bumps that had not
previously blessed his member. There can be numerous reasons for the
arrival of new male organ bumps, and fortunately many of them are benign –
that is, harmless (even if in some cases unattractive). For instance,
occasionally, bumps may be seborrheic keratosis, which don’t win prizes for
their physical beauty, but which do not indicate a social disease or other
male organ health problem.
About seborrheic keratosis
Okay, so they’re not dangerous – that’s good. But they mar an otherwise
handsome manhood, so what should a guy know about them?
Well, “seborrheic” means that it is related to the sebaceous glands. These are
glands, found all over the body and secrete an oily or waxy matter. Some
men are already familiar with sebaceous glands because they are the source
of Fordyce spots – tiny little white or clear bumps that can appear on the
skin of the manhood and the sacks. (They are completely harmless.)
“Keratoses” refers to growths of keratin, which Wikipedia tells us is the
“key structural material making up hair, nails, claws, hooves, and the outer
layer of human skin.” So, seborrheic keratoses are basically growths made
up of oily or waxy keratin.
Although this article is concerned with seborrheic keratosis appearing as
male organ bumps, they can appear anywhere on the body; in fact, they
appear less commonly on the member than on the torso or face. They vary in
color from light tan to brown to black. When they first appear, they tend to
be small little bumps, but they gradually thicken and become elevated. Often
as they grow, they take on a warty look, causing some men to fear they have
sensual organ warts – but they are not warts. They range in size from tiny to
more than one inch, with most tending to be around a quarter- or half-inch.
They are sometimes mistaken for signs of skin cancer, but again, they are
actually benign.
Seborrheic keratoses are more common in fairer-skinned people, and also
more likely to occur when a person reaches middle age or older (although
they can occur at younger ages).
Aside from an occasional itchiness, seborrheic keratoses don’t themselves
cause much bother; however, they may get irritated when the member rubs
against clothing or surfaces. In addition, because they do resemble sensual
organ warts or cancerous growths, many men may wish to have them
removed. There are several typical methods of removal, including:
 Cryosurgery, in which they are frozen off, much like common warts
 Curettage, in which special tools are used to scrape the very surface of
the skin
 Ablation, in which a laser is used to vaporize the problem
 Electrocautery, in which an electrical current burns the growth away
Often, a doctor may use a combination of these methods to remove the
Spotting new male organ bumps, whether caused by seborrheic keratoses or
other causes, demonstrates that a man is practicing good male member care,
and so he is hopefully already using a top-drawer male organ health creme
(health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically
proven mild and safe for skin) on a regular basis. Care should be taken in
selecting a cream – one that contains both a high-end emollient (such as shea
butter) and a natural hydrator (such as vitamin E). These ingredients
combine to create a “moisture lock” that helps keep delicate manhood skin
well hydrated and protected. Further protection is provided if the cream also
contains alpha-lipoic acid, a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce the
dangers of oxidative stress to member skin.
