Brief Answer:
This is Normal!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have reviewed your information and the image fully and it is entirely normal. The only visible difference is the discoloration and nothing else. If it were a disease, we would have expected to signs at least suggestive of irritation. There is no reason to be concerned about this. This is not suggestive of any disease or any ongoing disease process. Be calm and relaxed about it. Let it not be of further worries to you.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. If you still have any particular worries, please do share them with me.

Brief Answer:
Minor bleeds from maybe masturbation or trauma are the likely cause!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The most common cause of discoloration are small blood clots underneath the skin. This could be caused by minor trauma and common during masturbation or intercourse. As blood collects under the skin, it give various colors such as brown, bluish, etc.

For now, be relaxed and only seek further attention if there is something else that comes up. Let me know what your thoughts are at this time and whether this sounds a reasonable plan to you.
