I had noticed that there are some dark brown bumps or dead skin on my scrotum and I have no idea what s that never had any sex before?

Could be normal: As we get older, we get more "spots" on our skin, including the scrotal area. Because normally skin here is 'wrinkled-up' and we usually don't check down there daily, seeing some darker spots can be worrisome. Stretch/flatten it out to see what it looks like. If u are certainly sure this is new, consult doc to have it checked. The picture here=normal scrotal skin with brown bumps. Good luck. ...Read more

Skin discoloration: should be examined by your doctor. If it is changing in color, texture, temperature and it itches I recommend getting seen as soon as you can. You will likely need a skin biopsy to give you a correct diagnosis and treatment plan! ...Read more

Watch, see, & ...: Is this finding the first time or recurrent? Do you have long foreskin? At this time, it is reasonable to wait, watch, & see how these 2 may evolve, and of course, record their possible course of change. If getting better day by day, watch when it may maximally evolve; if not or worse, seek evaluation/counseling, or contact www.HealthTap.com/dr-Lin wtih RQPWJC to login - audio/video goes faster. ...Read more

Purpura: Purpura occurs when small blood vessels join together or leak blood under the skin. When purpura spots are very small, they are called petechiae. Large purpura are called ecchymoses. Platelets help the blood clot. A person with purpura may have normal platelet counts (nonthrombocytopenic purpuras) or low platelet counts (thrombocytopenic purpuras). See your doctor. ...Read more

You could consult a dermatologist if you have further concerns. ...Read more

I have two brown spots on the head of my penis. I had it sence i was likttle and there is a little whit dot bump on it to, i also masterbate alot.

It : It is unlikely that the brown spots you are describing have anything to do with frequent masturbation. If they have been present since you were a child, the odds of it being something serious are very slim. The spots may represent common skin moles, or even skin follicles. If you are concerned i suggest you bring this matter to the attention of your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
