I have a shiny like area(it's in the size of a fingernail,it's shiny,flat,doesn't itch or ache and doesn't smell bad) in top of my penis for about 1.5 years and i got it in a period of extreme anxiety
during this time this area has grown a little
i went to an urologist(i had an uti caused to proteus bacteria) and he said it's nothing to worry
i went to a dermatologist to be sure and he said that it was lichen planus and not to worry
he prescribed a cortisone cream for 45 days,i am in the third week of use without any result
i masturbate alot without any sort of lube,i am uncircumsised
what can it be?can it be penile cancer?
here is a picture
