Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

About three years ago, after a stint of frequent masturbation, I got a cut on the penis due to lack of lubricant. The cut healed as some hard white thing. I tried cutting it away with a scalpel, but it just grows right back. Four months ago, I went to a urologist, and he said it was probably a wart and proceeded to cut it out. When it healed, it I ended up with the white stuff covering the whole area the doctor cut. I have not had sex in the last three years and would like to know what is this (picture attached). Is there anything I can do now? I want your opinion before I go to a doctor again. Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

After the wart was destroyed, this is fibrosis developing (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It is not going to affect you in sexual experience or prowess. If the appearance is an issue, then wait for six months at least for the fibrosis to mature and take its final shape when it can be excised. At present, leave it as it is.

The Probable causes

Post-traumatic fibrosis.

Treatment plan

Wait and watch followed by reassessment later.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
