Can Skin Cancers Be On A Penis
Penile skin cancer: Yes, skin cancers can occur on the genital area. Squamous cell carcinomas make up over 90% of penile skin cancers, are usually on the foreskin or glans and can be related to hpv infections. Melanomas and other skin cancers can occur on the penis, athough more rarely. If you have a persistent or changing lesion on the genital area, please have it examined by a dermatologist as soon as possible. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Can HPV that causes warts on genital area on man could also cause cancer as well or is it just warts? I have a red mark on penis and small white dots
Possibly: Penile cancers are strongly associated with hpv infection (meaning most men with penile cancer have hpv). It is important to note that most men with hpv do not, however, go on to develop penile cancer, and men with penile cancer are typically much older than 21 years of age.

Nope: Herpes doesn't behave this way at all. Also, herpes lesions never remain unchanged for days at a time. They get inflamed, maximally in 2-3 days, then heal, always gone within 2 weeks. Herpes often recurs, but never more often than once a month, and between outbreaks there is nothing visible and no pain, discomfort, or anything else. Whatever you have, it isn't herpes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Handling Skin Lesion: I recommend having a full body skin check by a dermatologist performed at least once each year or more often as recommended by your healthcare professional. A "white spot" which has been present for a few years should be evaluated and, if appropriate, tested by taking a small tissue sample (biopsy) to test for the presence of skin cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can genital warts grow hair? I have a bump on the bottom of my shaft (tic tac size) with a hair growing from it. Concerned it may be a genital wart.
I'm not: Clear what you mean by bottom. Base means where your penis attaches at the pubis, bottom to me means along the shaft from base toward glans/foreskin if you still have one. Testes are in the scrotum. When you have such a consern, since i can't see it, you should show it to someone that knows normal from go to the urologist. ...Read more
I have a small lesion on my face. Dermatologist mentioned it is a sunburn - not a precancerous mole. Can it be cured by any ointment or pills?
Can a pubic flea get into anus and stay there? Inside of a body? Or it's only can be on outside on hairs?
Could severely picking at a mole that a blackhead came out of cause it to grow back with damage to the surrounding skin, such as a pale discoloration?
