Doing regular self-checks on the manhood is a good idea for male organ health reasons. Part of a self-check should involve looking and feeling all along and around the member for any new male organ bumps that may have developed. Male organ bumps are quite common, and there are numerous kinds and equally numerous causes, so a man shouldn’t panic if he does discover some new male organ bumps during a self-check. Many are generally benign, such as those that might appear if a man has neurofibromas on his manhood. |
Neurofibromas? What are those?
A neurofibroma is a non-cancerous tumor that can develop anywhere on the body where nerves are present, including, therefore, the member. These tumors develop from the cells and the tissues that cover nerves. When neurofibromas are present, they usually form soft bumps on or under the skin. Sometimes the tumor may form from several bundles of nerves, in which case it is known as a plexiform neurofibroma. (In some cases, neurofibromas may develop without actually creating visible bumps; however, bumps are a very common sign.)
Much of the time, neurofibromas are not accompanied by pain, unless they are pressed on or struck. However, sometimes the tumor may form in such a way that it lays uncomfortably upon a nerve, causing a more consistent pain. In some cases, the pain can be quite severe. This is more common when the neurofibroma is on a spinal neve. When they form male organ bumps, the discomfort is more likely to come when they are touched - and this of course, can be problematic, as it is the touching of the delicate and sensitive manhood nerves that makes sensual activity enjoyable. Often, therefore, when neurofibromas form male organ bumps, they impede a man’s ability to have sensual activity.
In some instances, people report that neurofibromas may itch, although this is not the case for all those with the disorder.
Causes and treatment
Scientists still are working to determine why neurofibromas develop. However, in some - but not all - cases, there is a genetic component to it. People who have the gene for neurofibromatosis are much more likely to develop neurofibromas, sometimes beginning to appear during or shortly after puberty.
If a person suspects he has neurofibromas on his manhood (or elsewhere), he should consult with a doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Sometimes this may involve the use of an MRI scan in order to get a better picture of just where the tumors are and whether there are some that may be small and underneath the skin.
Because most neurofibromas are benign, they don’t necessarily need treatment from a strictly medical point of view. However, some people may wish them removed due to the way they appear. Additionally, if they present as male organ bumps, a man may need them removed so that he can engage in sensual activity without discomfort.
Treatment typically would involve observation and continued monitoring. Again, with male organ bumps (or in other situations in which there is pain or in which cosmetic reasons prevail), it is likely that treatment would mean removal via surgical procedure.
Neurofibromas can return, so even after surgery it is wise to be monitored and to be on the look-out for possible recurrence.
Self-checking for male organ bumps like those caused by neurofibromas should be part of a comprehensive male organ health regimen. It should also include daily application of a first-class male organ health oil (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . When selecting the oil, find one that contains a combination of moisturizing agents, such as shea butter and vitamin E. Male organ skin requires adequate hydration to prevent flakiness and dryness. The oil should also include L-carnitine, which has neuroprotective properties to help protect manhood sensation.
