In brief: Leave it alone...

Hi! MGuy, welcome sending in new question.
Based on what you reported about glans penis, it would be most reasonable to just leave it alone as long as having no elevation or erosion (open wound) and being stable in size. Most likely, this patch will remain with you forever. More? Have doc take a direct look.
