Symptoms: Large spot on penis

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for your question. This spot on your penis could be caused by blocked sebaceous gland forming a comedone (pim ple). This is a benign skin eruption which will resolve on its own. However it can become infected. If you notice that it is not healing, or you experience pain in this area, please see your doctor immediately. Another possible cause of this spot could be due to a wart that caused by a sexually transmitted infection such as human papillomavirus, or herpes. We recommend that you have your doctor examine this to determine the exact cause of it. Your doctor may need to take a sample of this lesion in order to determine the exact cause of this lesion. Please see your doctor.Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
