Would it be harmful?

Im not sure if I posted this in the right section but..

I have had this strange birthmark ( Not even sure if it falls into the catagory of birthmark ). It appears to be a ball of skin attached by a thin peice of skin. Its small, and located on my penis at about half way up the left side.

My question is would it be harmful to cut it off myself, put alchol on it and then bandaid it? If not please tell me why.

Penises are just like other parts of the body: they're decorated with all sorts of marks, extra bits of skin, etc., but these aren't necessarily cause for concern. Unless you're a skilled surgeon, the answer is: NEVER, EVER cut any part of your body. You're leaving yourself vulnerable to infection, etc. If it were MY penis, I'd want an expert to examine it and determine whether this growth is harmless. A urologist will be able to give you this information after a thorough exam. If it's harmless, leave it alone--just as you would a mole, freckle, etc.  Dr. J
