Since I was child I noticed a circumcision scar on my penis and there is a part of surgical suture in it No other symptoms?

Thus length of inner foreskin remaining is marginally longer than length of baby's glans. Scar halfway down penis could mean that excess outer shaft skin was removed at circumcision, which circumcision technique was used. ...Read more

How do I remove dark scars on penis do to burning off warts. Had genital warts years ago, burned them off myself. How do I get rid of dark scars (please)!

Burn: Burn scars usually last a lifetime. The good news is that they lighten over time. There is a cream called Mederma that you can buy over the counter that may help lighten the scar. Read the instructions prior to buying to make sure this gel can be used on the genitals. Lastly please do not perform any more home medical procedures on yourself, this can be dangerous, and leave long lasting scars. There are other treatments for genital warts that would have resulted in no scars.
Good luck. ...Read more

I have atrophic scars on the glans penis, like acne boxcar scars, shallow/flat. Can I get them laser resurfaced like treatment for papules? Options?

Scars of the glans: Hello,
from your question I did not get the sense that you had pain from the scars.
I recommend against any further ablative treatments to the skin of the penis. This is a very sensitive part of your body and any ablative therapies such as laser resurfacing or more caustic treatments could reduce sensibility to this organ. Good luck.
