I would never have believed it possible, but this is what my GP told me, "It's just gristle," and after putting the words in his mouth he said, "ignore it and it should disappear - no problem". That was 3 months ago and it's increased in size - almost doubled in fact!

It started out looking like a very small, insignificant, white pimple. I ignored it, thinking it 'would go away', naturally. It protrudes just below the surface of the foreskin. I don't know it's there until I have an erection usually, and then it causes some concern. I'm only talking about centimetres in size here, but any guy will know, when you have something logged in the most sensitive of places, it feels more like a plank.

I did try to remove it myself, with a very fine and sterilized scalpel - way too painful... but this is how desperate I am to be rid of it...

Okay, you might be thinking, why not just go back to the doctor's office and have him check it out again? As a last resort I intend to but the thing is, I'm curious. I want to know how it got there and how it might be removed. As anyone here heard of such a thing?

I would be thankful for any thoughts.

  • hpv (warts) or moluscum contagioum...you need a doctor to diagnose and treat...how do you think it got there???:confused: The last person (woman) I had sex with was my wife, in 2001. I doubt it has anything to do with sexually transmitted misdemeanour. Also, it looks nothing like a wart or moluscum contagous... I think the doctor was right about his diagnosis BUT HOW? How does gristle come to be in the foreskin? And how does one go about having it removed?

  • HPV doesn't care who the last person you had sex with was. Symptoms can come up YEARS down the road - until the virus is cast from your body.Men also have no real test for HPV - it's just guesswork. However, since your married, make your wife go to a gynecologist. HPV can only be detected by a pap smear (men cannot get those). And no, just because you have a wart/whatever and your wife doesn't does not mean that she may not have whatever is causing it. HPV comes in multiple strains and can delay its visual symptoms, it can never produce any, and it can just come on rapidly.

I’m sorry but I wouldn’t know what my wife has since we were divorced in 2001; the last time I had sex with anyone before or since, and we were married for 24 years… something doesn’t add up to me. I do know for certain she never had any other sexual affairs during that time. My Dr. said it was gristle – that’s all I know, so how could it be a sexually transmitted anything?
