View Full Version : A strange birthmark on my penis...

On the shaft of my penis I have a birthmark but it is a bit strange. For as far as I know I have this thing as long is I can remember but today I was really focussing on it...

It is pretty small, at most 0.5 mm long and 0.2 mm thick. So it has a strange shape (maybe because penis 'changes' size multiple times a day?:))

But what worries me are the colours... It is mainly black and a bit red at 2 sides...
All my other birthmarks are brown and have no red. That is why I am scared at the moment and I can not go to a doctor at the moment.

I was reading about melanoma and it makes me scared. I read melanoma's are deep into the skin but I can take my 'birthmark' and move it from the penis itself, a bit strange but I hope it is clear like this. It seems to be purely in the skin.

What do you think about it when you read it like this? Could it be something bad?

You say that you always recall having this mark---do you notice if it has gone through any recent changes? Size, color, texture, thickness, anything? Do you notice any swelling or tenderness in the groin?

It really would be best to have it checked by a skin specialist. Maybe I would trust a urologist as he probably sees many men. I don't know if I would trust a regular GP with this, he may not see something such as this very often and melanoma is so incredibly dangerous.

Best of luck, please don't let this go too long~
