Thanks for writing to us.
It is pretty common to have a freckle on the shaft of penis. The skin of shaft of penis is just like skin on any other part of the body and hence can have freckles.
Stop worrying about the freckle. However, to be sure it shall be great if you could send picture to me and then I shall get back to you.

Earlier this year I noticed a dark brown mark on my scrotum which at first I thought was a bruise. It is painless and completely flat. Looks probably like a liver spot and is about 1cm wide when I stretch/flatten out the skin. If anything the mark has faded rather than gone darker. Could it just be a liver spot or freckle - i am quite a freckled person. I'm 35 years of age.

Hi I have some freckles-looking spots (reddish brown) that appeared on my inner thighs. The amount of the spots differ on days. Days when i can stay at home and stay cool (fan or aircon) it can significantly subside. Days when i go to work the whole day (at higher temperatures) it seem to cover a bigger area. I had a full blood count and the report is normal nothing unusual. How do i remove the spots? What are the spots?

What I (think that I) know: I know that melanin is a skin pigment that determines how dark or XXXXXXX a person is, and that it's production is somewhat determined by genetics combined with UV exposure. From my understanding, things like freckles,...
