i have the same problem
Dermatologist Dr. Bharat Chawda's  Response
Hi!,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

By your description it seems to be a mole.If it is raised above the skin level then it is called compound mole ,and if it is flat then it is called junctional mole.
Any mole by itself is not cancer,so please don't worry.But if the mole is increasing in size ,or if it is causing itching or is bleeding form the site,then it is a cause of worry .

regards,
Dr.chawda

I'm 16, about 3 years ago a brown mark appeared on the glans of my penis. It causes me no pain, is about the size of the tip of a "sharpie pen" and is flat. I think it's just a freckle but would like an opinion. I have a freckle/mole on my scrotum that I was bon with, but this is smaller. I am not circumsised, and am a virgin, i can seend pictures if necessary,
