Difference between Tyson's Glands and Pearly Penile Papules

Fordyce spots can also appear around the glans penis (or around the head of the penis). When this happens they are called Tyson's Glands. In the picture below the Tyson's Glands can be seen clearly on both sides of the frenulum.

Pearly penile papules are small skin tags or domed-shaped white bumps that appear around the head of the penis and sometimes on either side of the frenulum. The white dots on the glans penis in the below picture represent the pearly penile papules.

Fordyce Spots and Tyson's Glands are considered to be manifestations of the same condition. Pearly penile papules, however, are considered a different condition. Please see for good information about pearly penile papules.
