scar on penis

Basically, from the very tip of the head on my penis, down to about half of the size, I have a reddish scar. I've had it for as long as I can recall, and I can't even remember how I came to aquire it.

What could it be, I'm particularly embarrassed about this I have to say

Thanks very much, that sets my mind at ease a little.
It is very noticeable though, is that common?

Re: scar on penis

I haven't examined too many too closely. Mine is very noticeable. It was noticeable on my two sons, as well.
Don't worry, other people are used to them. If they've seen a male, they've seen a raphe.

Re: scar on penis

it's from being circumsized, all men who have had their foreskin removed has a scar. My bf's scar is very noticable more so when it's not hard

Re: scar on penis

G'day Ryster. Since you haven't been circumcised, the scar you describe is -- as Tommy124 has told you -- your raphe. Mine runs from the tip of my foreskin right down the underside of my penis and through the centre of my scrotum. Mine isn't "reddish"; it's more like a discoloured scar. And, yes, it's very noticeable.

It's a natural part of the male anatomy and, as such, nothing to be embarrassed about.
