White Dot On Penis

08/19/2002

Question:

I have some type of white dot on the head of my penis. I was wondering if it was some type of sign of a sexual disease and I was also wondering if you could give me some information of it. I had sex for the first time a couple weeks prior to noticing this white dot, (which looks like dead skin, but doesn`t rub off)I hope you can give me some information in what this is on my penis, besides telling me to get it checked out by my local doctor. Thank you so much for your time. I hope to hear from you soon. Thank you

Answer:

Unfortunately, it is not possible to tell you what is going on without examining the lesion. There are many causes of genital lesions. You really need to seek advice from your physician.
