Not likely, but ...: This description does not sound like cancer. It may be a skin infection/ disease. Need to show these lesions to a skin doctor or your family doc.

Yeast: This is fungus or yeast. It is not herpes. It is not syphilis. It is not cancer. Another odd option would be psoriasis or eczema. The penis is often where these skin diseases start. The only other possible cause would be allergic reaction to lube or any other irritant that may come in contact with your penis.
