Hello,
Thanks for your query.
I appreciate your efforts for medical consultation in so much distress.


It is important to know duration of these brown spots. If these spots are many months old, then they occur due to scarring of some old wound/ulcer/infective lesion. If brown spots recent in onset, then there is need to rule out infection.

It is good that HIV and VDRL are negative which rule out possibility of AIIDS and syphilis.

Let me size and duration of brown spots. It is better if you can upload its pic.


I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.

Wish you good health.
Regards,
Dr Ashish XXXXXXX Mittal

Hello again,
Thanks for follow up.

I can not see pics here. Please upload them again.

1)I am seeing these spots from 2008 before that i didnt observe it, so in 2008 i met doctor and they gave me Candid cream after HIV and VDRL test came negative saying that it is just infection, dont worry.
Ans: If spots are so old, and physician has assured you for not worrying, then I would also advice you for not worrying about them as these spots occur due to scarring of some old wound/ulcer/infective lesion.

2)in 2001 my penis got circumcised due to some toilet problem but the doctor had not removed the skin, instead he had just pulled it to back and that pic also i added.. is this have any problem ?
Ans: If it is not causing problem in masturbation, urination and sex, then there is no problem.

3)my penis looks very small during normal state, is it have any problem ?
Answer: If penis is more than 3 inch long in erect stage, then do not worry. Never compare your penis length with others specially with male in porn movies.

4)I masturbate 3 times a week by watching some porn videos that too i watch for a long time. it affects me in terms of time and i feel bad after watching it. please advice how to reduce it and to increase my efficiency at my work. I Always think about it and waste much of my valuable time.
Answer: Masturbation 3 times a week not a problem. But reduce you time spending in watching porn by: deleting porn videos, not sharing and downloading them in future.

5)Please advice whether my penis is in good condition or those brown spots will cause any problem during sex with my partner if i marry next year.
Answer: Again, do not worry. If you are having excessive anxiety and worry regarding your sexual functioning or if you feel that you are unable to control your excessive porn watching habit, then I would advise you to consult a Psychiatrist for counseling.

Wish you good health.
Regards.

Recent questions on  Circumcision

doctor1 MD

I am 55 years old and never had this problem until a year ago. I have seen 2 Urologist and they both say I do not see anything wrong I told them that my penis skin on shaft tears when getting and erection and sometimes it feels like it is over filling with blood. Like you blow up a balloon to normal then overfull it and it tears and takes about 3 days to stop hurting. I also notice that sometimes I will get this ring of tight skin that forms like a collar around the shaft near the rim of the penis and it hurts extremely to try to roll the skin down and most of the time it will not move but the pain is intense. At one time it would have red bumps on the rim on one side and felt like the erection was crooked and leaning to one side and over hard if that is possible. My regular doctor increased my blood pressure Medicine to see if lower my blood pressure would help. Not a chance. I can not find out what is causing the problem. It only does it when and erection occurs. I am circumcised but it also feels like after and erection is achieved there is no skin movement, for example if you try to masturbate and pull the skin back and forth there is none or very little movement and the rim gets very tight and hurts but the tearing is near the base and midway up the shaft. Someone please help because even when having a dream and getting and erection while I sleep I pay for that for 3 days of pure pain.

Starts with irritation at the penis foreskin for about 3-4days then 3 or 4 rush-like swellings (3-mm wide about 3mm apart) show in a group (in a line). After a about 2 days they become woulds so painful lasting over one week. I also have a growth 2mm thick about 4mm tall at the penis start skin.

Seen Doctors:
Doctor 1 - Three Months ago:
Thinks it is a bacterial infection and treated with antibacterials, Symtoms disappeared. By then then the growth 2mm thick about 4mm tall at the penis start skin was not there but other symptoms described were there.

Doctor 2: 3 weeks ago:
Thinks I have genital ulcers with herpes + Warts and gave me viral treatment. The wounds healed but I fealing the symptoms for irritation at the penis foreskin starting again (6days now). The penis and area around it now also itches.

My partner was also treated in both cases.

What should I do next?

hi I have a problem when my penis gets erect, it splits the skin just behind the head nearly every time. I am not circumcised and it seems that i have a tight ring of skin around the shaft thaat splits. I would be most grateful if you have any thoughts on this thank you.

My husband had a circumcision (he's 42) after phimosis all his life. It's been 8 months, and his glans are still too painful and sensitive to touch. He's says it feels like a toothache. I wonder if perhaps he had a low grade yeast infection under the foreskin for years going unnoticed. I read untreated yeast can grow rhizomes, and become more in the mold category, going under the top layer of skin in a woman's vagina, and having nearly no symptoms, other than vulva pain similar to what my husband is now describing. He has tried all pain meds for it, including ones for nerve pain. Suggestions on what this might be, other possibilities.... would be great.

Hi there Dr. Kakkar, I have asked you a question before about pumps on my penis. I went to see a local doctor and he confirmed your diagnosis and prescribed a cream which took care of the bumps within 10 days. Thanks you very much for that....
