Unhappy Hard, white skin on penis...from masturbation?

I have this weird, almost embarrassing question (for the record I'm 24 years old).

Whenever I'd masturbate, I'd rub against something and over the years this hard patch of skin developed (it has a whitish discoloration, and you can tell it has a 'hard' feeling to it).
p
I'm almost certain the cause is because of the friction (and whenever you have friction your body tends to do this), I'm just curious whether or not this goes away (it's also been a couple weeks since I've stopped masturbating this way).

Is there anything that could heal it or is this permanent?

coarse,

I too had something similar and i too worried myself senseless (purely because i wasn't qualified to interpret the information i was reading on the net). My problem was irritation caused by soap. I would recommend you go to your GP and see what he says.

If the white patch persists after trying some creams etc, ask to be referred to a dermatologist, GUM clinic or to urology and you'll soon get the answers that you're seeking.

No one other than your GP or specialist can give you an answer.
