There is a dark mark on the foreskin of my penis.

There is a dark mark on the foreskin of my penis on the head. It has been here for atleast 8 months or so. It is black ish on the edges and more pink in the middle. Is this a cause for concern?

It might be normal for you, but you should really get it checked out. Since it appeared out of nowhere 8 months ago, and assuming you're at least close to adulthood, so since it's new, you should get it checked out.

There is something called penile melanosis that may be causing this - https://www.healthline.com/health/penile-melanosis. It's totally harmless, but you should get it checked out to make sure it's this and not something else that needs treatment.

Let us know what happens.
