Question: 3/4 a dime sized bruise looking spot on my penis

 elusiveone - Sat May 30, 2009 9:50 pm

This appeared acouple months ago and has not really faded. There is no pain and it has the consistency of a bruise. I have not had a sexual partner in over 6 months. Im only 20 and im embarrassed to go to the doctor. I do plan to go within acouple week however. I appreciate any feedback.
