    Im not sure its an STD
    ytr2012 posted:
    I recently developed a roundish blister below the shaft on the sack. Along that line that goes along the primary vein of sorts on the shaft. I've looked into the STD section and nothing seems to match, and I haven't any any risky sex in quite a while. Just the same person, who also hasn't been with anyone else. I like to just make sure whether or not I should visit the doc. I shaved recently, which is something I rarely do instead of trimming. And I wasn't sure that may have had something to do with it. It just appeared there last night after masturbating. If i am breaking any rules by posting the pic i am very sorry, I just thought a pic would possibly get better results. I made it as G-rated as i possibly could

    Im honestly surprised after days of being up that no one has any comment. It is disheartening.

    Quite frankly, the obvious comment is that internet diagnosing is notoriously unreliable and if you remain worried about this blister on your penile shaft get it checked out by a physician.

    ytr2012 replied to georgiagail's response:
    I can't afford to go to the doctor if its nothing. They aren't cheap these days, and $150 just for him to tell me there's nothing wrong isn't affordable. Not because I don't want to, but because I don't have it.
    georgiagail replied to ytr2012's response:
    So, basically, you'd like a bunch of strangers, most of whom have no medical background and those (like me) who do who wouldn't even venture an internet guess to tell you there's nothing wrong with you from a picture you post on the internet. Have I got that about right?

    Well this is forum is not for free medical advice, you have to see a Dr for proper testing to find out if you an STD!
