Pearly Penile Papules Q & A
What Are Pearly Penile Papules?
Also simply called PPP, this condition is much more common than many patients first realize. It occurs when small, typically harmless tumors grow around the head of the penis. Generally, these growths do not pose a health threat, but treating them can still be a vital decision.
These small growths tend to be especially visible during an erection. As a result, many of our patients report how they can severely decrease sexual confidence. Many patients even cease all sexual activity because of this condition. But, professional treatment is available that can fully remove PPP and let you once again find joy and confidence in sex.
Do PPP Go Away on Their Own?
Without treatment, PPP generally do not ever go away on their own. At best, they may seem to fade a bit over the years. That is why we highly recommend treatment as soon as you notice symptoms. By removing any PPP, you can avoid the negative effects it can have on your sex life right away. Waiting for treatment only allows for more time for the pearly penile papules to grow larger!
Are PPP Contagious?
If your condition is indeed PPP, you can rest assured that it is not contagious. The direct cause remains somewhat unclear, but they are not transmitted during sexual intercourse. Both you and your partner(s) can rest assured that this condition will not pass from one person to another. However, it is vital to receive a full diagnosis to ensure that the condition is indeed PPP and not something else.
How Does PPP Treatment Work?
Once you have your diagnosis, we can get to work on removing PPP. Fortunately, the treatment itself is quite straightforward; we simply remove them using dermatologic methods. By precisely targeting each PPP growth, we can effectively remove their presence entirely. The result is a restored cosmetic appearance of the penis.
We strongly recommend visiting a specialist rather than trying at-home remedies. These tend to be ineffective, and some may even prove harmful when administered. Instead, having a trained expert remove the growths is the only proven method to address PPP.
What Is the Recovery Like?
Most patients tolerate the recovery period for PPP removal quite well. Though the entire process can take about 1-2 weeks for full healing, it does not bring much discomfort. Still, we recommend avoiding sexual activity while your penis heals from the treatment. Complications from PPP removal are quite rare. Still, if you have any questions or concerns, our team is always here to provide answers and assistance.
How Long Do the Results Last?
After your treatment, you should see immediate results; no more PPP anywhere. We have even better news: the results should be permanent in most cases. However, in rare cases, some patients may experience new PPP later on in life. Fortunately, patients can have PPP removal at almost any point in life without affecting their sexual function.
Should I Have Pearly Penile Papule Removal?
For some patients, the growths may be so small that they never even notice them. After all, up to 30% of men have some form of PPP at some point in their lives. If you notice abnormalities, we do recommend to start by seeking a professional diagnosis. Once you know what you are dealing with, then you can decide if treatment is right for you. Most patients find that having PPP removal is the right choice, as living with them often negatively affects both sexual and overall confidence. Our specialist can walk you through treatment options and give you an idea of what results you can expect.
