User rating for this question
Hello, this morning as i woke up and took a look at the tip of my penis and saw a single blackish dot. I touched it to see if it hurts or comes off and i felt no pain. I dont feel any pain urinating or any of that. The spot which is a single spot just appeared on the tip of my penis and I am concerned as to what may be the reason for it and if i should be more concerned.

Brief Answer: NO need to get worried! Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for this query. I am so sorry to hear about this black spot and all the disturbing thoughts this has caused you. I have reviewed the image carefully. It is nothing that you should get too worried about. It does not represent any disease or announces the eminent occurrence of a disease. It looks very much like a small bleed into the skin that has caused this. The exact cause is not evident but could be a bite by a small insect or even a spontaneous process. It should slowly get cleared off by the body's cells over a few weeks. I want to make it expressly clear that this is not related to STDs and requires no further medical attention right now unless something else comes up. I wish you well.
