Hi everyone. I'm new here, and extremely concerned. Hypochondriacs kind of run in my family, but this is the first time I've ever really had a scare.

About three weeks ago I noticed a very small patch of brown bumps on the underside of my penis. They tend to change color now and then, depending on whether I'm erect, just got out of the shower, etc, but they're almost always brown and they look kinda like a small cluster of moles. In addition, very recently where the skin kind of bunches up towards the head of my penis I've noticed similar bumps.

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

1. I've been tested. I do not have genital warts.
2. They are completely painless. Don't bleed even with harsh scrubbing.
3. My testicles seem to be very uh, lumpy in the sense that they seem like they're swollen. No cancer-like bumps though.
4. I have looked all over the place trying to find a very similar picture but to no avail.

and this is a big one...

I live in kind of a crappy apartment, and I have a weird habit (I know) of spending a lot of time in the bath. Whether it's reading on my phone, messing around with games, emails, etc. But recently, life has been rough and I've made a terrible habit of drinking in the tub and kind of falling asleep. I wake up and my hands, etc are so pruned it's ridiculous. I don't know if it could be mold-related or excessive water is doing something to my penis. I'm just trying to provide every detail I can think of.

I'm scared as hell. Any insight is appreciated. I've gone from "that's weird" to "oh god what I have cancer." I really need some help. I"m going to see a doctor either way but until then, hopefully I can find answers from you fine folks. Thanks so much.

A few more details:

I'm 32 and I have no allergies, skin issues, and I'm in reasonably good health (until the recent drinking). I have a lot of moles on my body but not excessive. I don't smoke, and I am occasionally very active.

The reason I mentioned the bath tub is because I've noticed a bit of mold that I really need to clean. It's not filthy, but it's an older apartment bathtub and who knows what the hell went on in there before I moved in. I am hoping it's water related, but I'm pretty sure falling asleep in a bacteria-ridden tub for hours at a time regularly could be the main cause, since I only noticed them after doing that for a few weeks.

Please respond, with anything you can provide. I'm terrified.

When I had a white growth show up on my penis about 10-12 years ago I went to a urologist to see what could be done. He quickly said that the problem was out of his area, that it was a skin problem and I should see a dermatologist. The dermotologist told me that it was a fungus which could be treated with a prescription cream (and was); and that it wouldn't have been such a problem for me had it been anywhere else on my body (that's for sure!).

It's good that you're going to have it checked out; hopefully the condition will turn out to be something easy to treat and that you'll soon be feeling much better. ANd if it takes too long to get to a dermatologist try going to an urgent care center -- cheaper than the ER and faster than a specialist.

Good luck, and let us know how you make out!
