Black spots covering penis, What could it be ?

I have had these black spots on my penis for a few years. I always assumed they were freckles, or birthmarks or something. But lately i've noticed more. They cover the top and bottom of the shaft and a few small dots on the head. What could it be? im planning on seeing a doctor about it soon.

Thanks for posting your query.

It could be a harmless pigmentation or something else.
If you have itching it could be fungal infection.
If it do not show any symptoms it needs to be examined initially and relevant investigations like biopsy might be needed to diagnose .
Since there is increase in number i suggest you to consult a Dermatologist for further investigations and good local examination.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.
