Redness and Swelling on Penis
I am 51 years old. 2 years ago, I noticed some spots on my Penis (at the shaft i.e. after pulling the foreskin back). I consulted an Urologist who prescribed some medicines. Again recently, I am having same problem - There is redness, some swelling, foul discharge etc. The condition has improved with anti-fungal medicines and Clotrimazole drops and regular cleaning with a mild soap. However the Urologist is suggesting circumcision and biopsy of the tissue. He mentioned that the problem is most problem Balanoposthitis. My question is can a biopsy be done without circumcision. What are the differences in symptoms of Balanoposthitis and Penile Cancer.

I don't smoke nor drink and all tests like HCV are normal. Thank You.

Hi Steve I think if you read up about Balanoposthtis, you will find that if your doctor or uro thinks its serious then he/she will reccomend you to have circumsission, so yours must be bad, but cant see the relation between that and cancer.
Good Luck
