I have had a few episodes of recurrent balanitis for the past two years. For the past 3 months I've changed my hygiene practices and have had no recurrent episodes. About 2-3 months ago I noticed a flat, brown spot around 2mm in size on my penis. You can see it here in my profile: https://www.medhelp.org/user_photos/show/766469?personal_page_id=6040616
This spot did not exist 2 years back (I have picture evidence), but could have existed as far as 1 year back - a slight brown pigmentation is noticeable in those picture around the same size.
Any idea what this could be, and if it could be dangerous? Thanks!
Hello and welcome to the forum. Brown pigment on the penis is usually not dangerous. Penile melanosis comes to mind. https://www.healthline.com/health/penile-melanosis This may be a result of the balanitis.
