Fordyce spots also termed Fordyce granules   are visible sebaceous glands that are present in most individuals. They are not associated with any disease or illness, nor are they infectious but rather they represent a natural occurrence on the body. No treatment is therefore required unless the individual has cosmetic concerns. Persons with this condition sometimes consult a dermatologist because they are worried they may have a sexually transmitted disease especially genital warts or some form of cancer. Some diseases may appear similar to Fordyce spots such as sexually transmitted diseases. On the shaft of the penis, Fordyce spots are more visible when the skin is stretched, and may only be noticeable during an erection.
