Circular shape on penis foreskin. Worried about cancer

Hi I just got up and went to the bathroom.. I noticed an odd circular shape on my penis foreskin so I searched online for help... I am worried I might have some sort of cancer . I am probably over reacting but I would rather catch it early if there is a problem can you please help me? I should probably mention I am not an adult.. I am quite young and have not told my family about this.

Thanks for writing to us.
A circular lesion over penis could be fungal infection, granuloma annulare, lichen planus, etc. Fungal infection would require antifungal like clotrimazole while LP and granuloma annulare will require steroids.
Please meet a dermatologist nearby.
Hope this helped.
Take care
