I have 2 flesh coloured bumps on the underside of my penis, about two cms from the tip. They are adjoined and approx. 2-3mm in diameter. One is spongy and the other feels like it has a very small hard bit inside. When I was a baby I had surgery to correct an inguinal hernia and so I wonder if these could possibly be scar tissue. Is it possible to upload photos on this site? Thanks
It is hard to identify any bumps on the skin without seeing them via a visual examination. However, the location of the bumps indicates that they are not scar tissue from an inguinal hernia. An inguinal hernia is located next to the root of the penis, instead of on the underside where you locate the bumps.
The scar tissue after surgery is located on the same place as the inguinal hernia. An inguinal hernia is a condition in which part of the intestines are out of the abdominal cavity, passing through the inguinal canal into the scrotum (the skin bag where the testicles are located).
