View Full Version : Small dark patch on inner foreskin.

About 2-3 weeks ago, I noticed that I had a small patch about 0.4mm in size on my innrer foreksin.

When i retract the skin, I can see it clearly and it doesnt hurt at all. The patch is dark brown when my penis isn't erect and when it is, it can hardly be seen and isn't raised from what i can see infatc, it seems to be depper into the skin. This can only be judged by light.

I would go to the doctors, but to be honest I'd be lieng if I said I wasn't shy about it. the only people i've managed to tell are you guys on here and would appreciate it if you could find out or tell me what it is. I do have slight pain in my sack, but i think thats just from sitting down and squashing my b*lls.

I havent noticed any change in my urine or any lumps ect. The only thing I've noticed so far is the small patch.


I would also like to mention that im a 17yr old white male.

Well, I'm not sure what the "patch" consists of, or why it concerns you. Is it rough, scabby, dark? Did it suddenly appear?

At 17 you are young, and your skin is still changing with regards to moles, freckles, etc. Actually, it is a good thing that you are checking your skin, and are concerned about things you might find that don't appear "normal!" However, it's going to be difficult for people here to be able to tell you what is going on, though chances are, it's probably nothing.

If this concerns you, I would really suggest seeing a doctor, as embarassing as that seems to you right now. I don't know if a same gender doctor would make you feel more comfortable, but I do know that doctors have heard it all and seen it all! And typically, a doctor would rather have you come in with something like this, even though it is a bit of a discomfort for you, than to have you ignore it because you feel it's too embarassing, and something bigger may develop.

Good luck to you!
