White Spots on Scrotum

I have developed white spots on my testicles.  They do not hurt or itch and do not seem to be raised.  A Dr has checked them by taking a skin sample that came back as not cancerous.  I am concerned because another is developing (total of 7).  Is it possible the Dr. office made a mistake with regard to it being skin cancer?

Hi,
Skin cancer is unlikely to present as multiple, sequentially developing, white lesions on the scrotal skin.
The skin biopsy too is negative for cancer.
You may see a dermatologist for ruling out conditions like vitiligo etc.

Thanks for responding.  What is vitiligo?  They are not raised at all just white spots appearing.

Vitiligo is a skin disease where white patches develop. It is not cancerous.

I looked up Vitiligo and it does not look like that.  My concern is that the Dr. may have been wrong in his diagnosis.

The best way to address your concern is to get a second opinion.
Please see another doctor, preferably a dermatologist. He would do a physical examination, review the previous biopsy slides, and if needed, take another biopsy.

Hi Wilbur,
White spots in the skin of the scrotum, esp around the hair base, may be vitiligo.
Pl consult a skin specialist.
