Red Spot on Penis


Q: Hello, Recently I noticed a red spot about 1cm wide on the tip of my penis, and was wanting to know if it poses a health or sexual concern? Also, is not painful in any way, just looks strange. At first I really did not think much of it, but it is still there a couple of weeks later. I have not had sex with anyone since I noticed it, and wanted to be sure it was not an STD, and what the best option would be to do at this point to know for sure what is. I took a picture of it just to see if I was losing my mind completely, and the picture actually shows it better, if someone is comfortable with me sending it to view. Thanks in advance, for any information you can provide on this embarrassing issue, and look forward to having it resolved soon.
