Answer for: Do Pearly Penile Papules reappear once removed?
Yes, there is a possibility that Pearly Penile Papules will reappear even after a successful removal treatment, but the chances of this happening are quite low. Unfortunately, there is no treatment as of yet that can 100% guarantee that the Pearly Penile Papules do not re-emerge after a given period of time. If the Papules do reappear, Dr. Jha recommends that the patient simply undergoes radiosurgery since this procedure is non-intrusive, non-surgical and very rarely leaves any kind of scars. Due to the fact that radiosurgery only acts upon the superficial stratum of the penile epidermis, this procedure can be utilized numerous times on the same patient without causing any long-term harm to the affected area. Also, since no hospitalization period is necessary, the patient can immediately return to work with only a period of 7 to 10 days of sexual abstinence needed for the affected tissue to fully recover.
If enough time is allowed to pass, the physical symptoms of PPP will eventually disappear since they generally occur in men between the ages of 20 and 30. Until that time, periodical radiosurgery can be periodically employed in order to avoid the negative effects Pearly Penile Papules may have on the patient’s sexual life and self-esteem.
