I found a brown growth on my penis.

Hello,
Thanks for query and the photograph.
I would like to know few additional points.
1. Is there any pain or itching in the lesion?
2. Is there any bleeding from the lesion?
3. Is it soft or hard to touch?

Just with the picture, I consider the following conditions.
1. Wart . The lesion should be hard in this case.
2. Pyogenic granuloma. This is associated with bleeding.
3. Nevus. This presents just as a soft area of pigmentation.

Kindly answer the above questions so I can give a most probable diagnosis.

Feel free to ask any further doubt.
Wishing you a good health.
Thank you .

Hello,
Thanks for the follow up query.
Without any symptoms, it is just a nevus, similar to moles what we have on body.
There is nothing to worry. It will not grow much.
You may neglect it or if you wish, get it removed by using LASER or radio frequency ablation.
You can XXXXXXX a dermatologist; he can remove it within minutes.

Hope I answered your query.
If you are satisfied, kindly rate the discussion before closing it.
Wishing you a good health.
Thank you .
