Well to start off, I had been jacking off a while back and after a couple of weeks I started to see small bumps on my penis head and small bumps on my balls. I'm worried I might have HIV or genital warts. I have been feeling really bad due to my worries of having contracted a sexual virus.please I need info fast.

Thank you for asking at EHF!
I read your question and i understand your concern. Masturbation is the commonest cause of these penile bumps. These are clogged sebaceous pores and self resolve. Just quit masturbation or any other friction, adapt good hygiene and wait and see. Don't pop poke or pick these bumps.

I hope it helps. Consult your doctor as our advice is just for education purpose only.
