Fordyce spots are also called Fordyce granules, Sebaceous Prominence or Fordyce’s spots and are represented by small (1mm – 5mm), a bit raised, yellow-white, pale red or skin-coloured bumps that can appear in both men and women, on the shaft of the penis, scrotum, labia and on the face, on the vermillion border of the lips. The bumps that are noticed on the foreskin of the penis are called Tyson’s glands and Fordyce spots must not be mistaken by Pearly Penile Papules.
This skin disorder is highly unaesthetic, but other than that, Fordyce spots do not represent an illness or disease. They are harmless, non-contagious, asymptomatic and never cancerous. Moreover, they are not sexually transmissible, but many people experience psychological distress because it can affect their social and love life.
Manifesting in about 80-95% of adults, Fordyce spots are visible sebaceous glands without hair follicles that can be present on one’s skin since birth and become bigger in time.
