Bumps from jelqing/hanging
So the story goes like this.
Short of a year ago I noticed a small white bump on the top of the crest of the gland after I first started hanging. First thought “oh no HPV” after looking around here I decided it maybe PPP and decided to watch it carefully. So nothing much changed but later that week or the same day I noticed more bumps. They appeared almost like a straight line (sort of like a scar) right above the foreskin at the start of the neck of the gland. Then I thought “oh no this must be HPV because it sure isn’t PPP” but I decided to watch it carefully.
Nothing much seemed to happen, some days the bumps were hardly noticeable, others they were whiter looking like bumps. When they were not whitish they were skin coloured and were every so slightly raised off the skin.
Fast foreword to now, 20 days ago I started hanging again at 5 lbs for 15 min. After I took the hanger off I noticed another identical white dot next to the other dot on the crest. Then 10 days ago I decided to switch from counting my jelqs to a set time limit. So I did 27 minutes of dry jelqing and after I stopped I noticed the scar like bumps appeared to have started spreading from the left side over the top to the right. The original bumps were larger and looked not very unappealing as they were whitish.
So I booked an appointment with the doc. Went in today and she took a look. Her exact comments were “Well I’m not convinced that you have HPV. Where do you think you have it?” I pointed out the bumps and told here how they were spreading and asked what they are and why they are spreading. She then stated that she had no idea and that they were not anything but that I should continue to keep an eye on them. She said that because they were so small (at the time) and didn’t look like coulee flower that it wasn’t HPV.
It was a good day. Anyone else experience these marks?
