Default Small dark spot on the head of my penis?

I'm a virgin so it can't be an STD. That spot is a little darker than normal. The texture of that spot doesn't feel any diffrent from the rest of it. The spot doesn't hurt or anything. It isn't raised at all. Does this sound like anything to worry about? My dad thinks it's just pigmentation discoloring or something like that. Does that sound right?

I assume you didn't have this before, which is why you are worried about it.

You should really seek the advice of a medical professional for something like that, as opposed to just anyone. They would be the most appropriate ones to assess and respond -- and can actually see you in person.

(That said, I am a female, but I still think a medical professional would be most appropriate, and not just male or female members of the forum, or general internet public.)

Cheers.

I agree. Go and see a doctor. It is probably nothing though.

Please tell me you only described this "spot" to your Dad.

Could just be a freckle. In the past I was worried about clear, raised bumps on my thing and they were just sebaceous glands in a more visible form. Something like 5% of guys have them.

It is very likely that it's nothing at all to worry about.

I really doubt it's anything, but if you are seriously worried, a doctor would be your best bet. They can tell you what it is, what it isn't, and you'll be in the clear if it's nothing and if it's something, they can help.

See a doctor. Can't be any worse than discussing your penis with dad. I never had a normal father/son relationship, but I'm pretty sure this isn't something fathers & sons often discuss.

Odds are the doc can confirm it's nothing to worry about. The other choice is to worry about it till you die.

It's probably been there all along...and you just now noticed it. Most likely it's a freckle or a small birthmark.

I agree that it's probably a freckle. I get random freckles popping up from time to time. I have one on the tip of my left middle finger and one on the sole of my right foot that is a pretty recent addition.

Anywhere you have skin you can get freckles.

***Thread Advisory***
This thread, hopefully, will fade. The point needs to be made that hypochondriasis - the word you have seen me post over and over again in these threads - is a factor in the anxiety realm. It can be in the social area in that how one sees himself can make him avoid social situations. It is a secondary issue like body dysmorphic disorder, obsessive/compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, etc.

It is encouraged that such issues ALSO be addressed, by professional means if necessary.

Oh puh-leeze. Parents are there to help you. Even if they are hopelessly ancient and out-of-touch. After all, you are MADE out of them (if you are their natural child)!

I also vote for freckle. I have actually seen such. We can get weird spots all over that you never see on people wearing makeup. (That's why there is such a thing.) But do ask your doctor for a definitive opinion.

Please don't ever hesitate to talk to your doctor about anything that is bothering you about your health. Hypochondriasis is very real but so is disease. And no one dies of hypochondriasis.

The deal here is that the threads are at best evidence of hypochondriasis; they aren't about hypochondriasis. Correspondingly, none of the posts other than yours address hypochondriasis; they address imagined medical symptoms, which in my view accomplishes nothing.

Based on the other threads created, I don't believe the issue is hypochondriasis anyway. They are about fears of being molested, killed, assaulted, and so on. Hypochondriasis? Münchausen by Internet? Troll? I don't know, but in any of those cases, I think a baseline of insight into one's condition is necessary to have a productive discussion. Without that, we're addressing an endless stream of delusions at face value. To do so is an individual choice, but I have no interest.

This is a statement of my present opinion only; it's not my intent to contradict your moderation.
