Pearly Pink Papules, please remove with circumcision

Dr. Reed, Pearly Pink Papules (PPP) is the name given to my little warts on the rim of head of my penis.  Can you do an adult circumcision and removed these little “what’s that”” warts at the same time?


Dear Leonard,

Yes, we can do this gratis in that your penis is already anesthetized..  Our approach is to try to get all the big ones and lesser ones in the first session.  I am concerned that pin point needle cauterization in one continuous streak may leave a hairline scar  The rest can be done as a touch up.  These are not venereal warts or condyloma accuminata, and in fact are a normal variant which seems to occur more frequently in uncircumcised men.  They are not contagious.

Not to worry,
