About a month ago, I made a post about a horizontal crack on my glans that runs between the glans and corona. A fellow member showed me how to give readers access to photos since we are not allowed to post them here. I am trying again, hoping that photos will make my message clearer.
Until I was 14, my glans was smooth and the border between the glans and corona was marked by a sudden change from light purple to dark purple. Then, overnight, a crack appeared between the glans and corona. There was no pain or bleeding, but I was scared. I mustered the courage to ask my doctor about it and he said it was nothing to worry about, it is just the way I am and it is a normal penis-head variant, though not a common one. Three other doctors I have asked about it over the years said much the same thing, though none of them wanted to talk about it further. I believe their diagnoses since it has caused me no physical discomfort over the last 50 years. I suppose other men with this feature are OK with it since they may have always been that way, but with me, it was a sudden change, so I am acutely aware of it. What I want to know is the name of this type of crack. If there is not a name for it, there should be, since the medical profession has names for every crease, fold and groove on the human body. If there is no name for it, I propose calling it a "circlet" since that is the part of the crown (corona) that rest on the head (glans).
