Could Darker Discoloration On The Underside Of The Penis Be A Sign Of Cancer?

default
Posted on Mon, 6 May 2024
Question: Hello. I noticed this darker discoloration on the underside of my penis (see picture linked below). Is this something to worry about?
It may have been there my whole life. I am circumcised. It is a little darker than the picture shows. I tend to worry about cancer though I assume that's unlikely. Thanks for your help. [drop box link]

Brief Answer:
There is nothing to worry.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Let me assure you first that there is no sign or symptom of penis cancer in you. The undersurface of penis is slightly more darker and can appear black. Cancer of penis starts as small foul smelling growth, or ulcer.

Take care
