Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Red spot on glans



Another shot
Another shot  

I noticed a small red dot on glans of the penis about a week ago. After a few days it has grown to its current size. I have not had sex in about 9 months. There is no pain or itchy ness associated with this bump nor is there any penile discharge or foul smell. Concerned that it could be a preliminary stage penile cancer. Thoughts? Thanks for any insights you may have.

Hi Michael,

Does it have a hair growing out of it? If so, it could be a wart! However, since I'm not capable of doing biopsies over the internet, I would see a dermatologist for follow up just to be sure. I've never known cancer to form in a week Michael, if that were so, you'd be dead by the time this email reached you because you're suggesting that this thing has a faster growth rate than the kudzu on my chain linked fence in my backyard :( Time to make an appointment my friend.

Best wishes,
