On the foreskin at the HEAD area there is this area of skin that is beginning and getting darker as time goes. This started like 6 months ago a small weird black spot on my head “penis” now its getting bigger as it time goes. My penis (the head) is pink but this dime-sized scar is black so it is completely noticeable. It is right on the head. I don’t know what happen for some weird reason. Can you help me on this one please.

I need your advise thanks!

  • I wish people had responded to you sooner. You need to see a dermatologist IMMEDIATELY as you could have melanoma a type of skin cancer that spread quickly. Possibly you should go to an emergency room to have it removed (if you can't get a doctor's appointment soon). Bascially melanocytes produce melanin (brown/black) and when they get cancer you get a black dot. The reason why melanoma is so bad is it spreads quickly.
