Local discoloration on foreskin

For quite a while now I have had a local brown discoloration (spot) on my foreskin.
It's a bit hard to describe but I will try to explain it as best as possible.

Like I mentioned, I've had, for quite a while now, a brown discoloration on my foreskin. Many argue that this may be related to skin pigmentation. I, however highly doubt this because of the following;

- in a flaccid state it presents itself as a brown (spot) discolouration on the foreskin, but in an erect state it presents itself as a (round, bubble-like) thick vein.

This discoloration (thickening of the vein) takes place exactly where the superficial dorsal vein intersects with another vein. It does not cause any pain, tenderness, irritation or discomfort but looks quite weird and out of place. My question is what could this be? Maybe a burst vein, bruising or blood accumulation? and what can I do about it?

Hopefully you can help me with this because I'm pretty worried.

Cheers,
John

Hey John!

Well, without a detailed description and physical examination, it would be difficult to say what the discolouation could be due to. A few possible causes that may need to be considered include melanoma, fordyce spot, angiokeratoma, flat wart, erythroplasia of querat (reddish appearing) etc. With the description you have provided this sounds more like either a normally hyperpigmented region or a melanoma. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or a dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
