I had a brown flat spot just appear on the head of the penis a couple months ago and now a couple more popped up on the foreskin (im uncircumsised)?

A couple things: These can be a type of mole called melanotic macules or early skin growths of seborrheic keratoses. These are completely benign & tend to happen more in some people versus others. There is a small possibility that these could be early flat warts. Seborrheic keratoses & warts would become more raised over time. I would recommend an evaluation by a dermatologist to make sure they aren't warts. ...Read more

Dark spots: The biggest concern abotu dark spots on the skin is melanoma, an aggressive skin cancer. While this is very rare on the penis, it can happen. You should have this checked by your doctor. It is not safe to render an opinion on the nature of such spots without actually taking a look at it. ...Read more

Freckle?: On the shaft or the head? If it is on the shaft, it may simply be a scar or freckle. If it is changing in size, it should be evaluated sooner than later. Otherwise, you can ask your doctor during your next exam. ...Read more

Noticed brown shiny spot on penis head. 2 DRs say irritation frm wiping frm mastrbating. 1 sex partner. No pain/puss. HPV or Herpes? How to cure it?

Noticed brown shiny spot on penis head. 2 DRs say irritation frm wiping frm mastrbating. 1 sex partner. No pain/puss. HPV or Herpes? How to cure it?

Probably not serious: For sure this isn't herpes. I suppose it could be HPV, but a new HPV lesion would be rare at your age of 39. There are many possibilities, and the large majority of skin problems of teh penis are not STDs and aren't serious. Since two doctors apparently aren't certain, consider seeing a dermatologist. ...Read more

I have a brownish small spot on the head of my penis. I have never had sexual intercourse and I am not circumcised. Is it possible it's a birth mark?

I have a brownish small spot on the head of my penis. I have never had sexual intercourse and I am not circumcised. Is it possible it's a birth mark?

Brown or Deep Purple: Yes. It might be a birthmark (congenital nevus) or a simple mole (nevus).Be sure it doesn't change in shape, size, color, & the edges are not jagged. If so go to the Doctor.
But, it might be a tiny bruise that would fade away. It might be an Angiokeratoma of Fordyce: tiny benign (not cancer) bump of blood covered with skin, they stay forever, you may get more on scrotum, if bleeds, put pressure. ...Read more

I have noticed small light brown spots on the base of my penis these spots have appeared in the last 60 days

I have noticed small light brown spots on the base of my penis these spots have appeared in the last 60 days

I: I wish that I could tell you definitively what's going on, but no one can without examining you and getting a complete medical history including your sexual history. If you're asking this kind of a question on an online forum like this, I suspect that you don't have a primary care doctor, or if you do, you don't feel comfortable asking him/her about this issue.

If you don't have access to healthcare because of insurance or financial issues, go to a public health clinic. Almost every public health department has a sexually transmitted disease clinic. The one closest to you is the rockland county std clinic (845) 364-3771. What's going on with your penis may welll not be a sexually transmitted disease, but if it is, the folks there will be more than able to figure it out. They've seen it all, and if they're anything like most std clinics, they're not going to be judgemental.

If you do have access to healthcare and don't feel comfortable talking to your physician about something like this, get a new one!

in my experience, most of these issues are nothing - normal skin tone variation, freckles, etc. But if it is something like genital warts (which are incredibly common and nothing to be ashamed about) you want to get it taken care of. If, it's something more serious like a melanoma (which is incredibly rare - you've got a better chance of winning the lottery then getting struck by lightening) it would be a terrible shame to not get that diagnosed early because of embarrassment.

So, get it looked at! And if you don't feel comfortable being completely honest with your doctor, find another one. It's not a doctor's role to judge or try to change your behavior. My role is to listen to you, evaluate your health problems and risks, and give you the information you need to make decisions. ...Read more

1 doctor agreed:

Here are some. ..: Such color change in glans penis may occur and evolve along lifetime most commonly resulting from estrogen effect from sexual intercourse. Largely, it's harmless as long as there is no elevation, irritation, bleeding, etc. To clarify such concern requires professional evaluation and exam with inspection & palpation after detailing history on its onset, degree, progress, etc. Over time. ...Read more
