    urgent question tormenting me
    will936 posted:
    i have two partners in the past and always practice safe sex (condom used) however i got a bump that appeared as a pimple on the shaft of my penis , when squeezed nothing came out. I continued to squeeze for a few days it swelled up and blood shot out, i left it alone and it has turned into a usually almost unnoticeable ring with a hollow center, the skin in the center appears normal. It has been there for almost 7 months now and if the ring if a edge of the small ring is squeezed a clear liquid slightly comes out. I am not sure if this could be a sign of syphillis, skin cancer, or just a scar from a overly messed with ingrown hair or pimple , it had no pain or adverse on my health physically and somtimes is almost not visable unless messed with please help his keeps me up at night worrying i am not a overly sexual person and am very scared i am 18 years old and in excellent health

    No one on the internet can diagnose you, why not make an appt with your health care provider to be seen.

    Hi Will936,

    Welcome to the community. Please feel free to join our discussions.

    I understand that you might feel scared but Elle is right, you should see a doctor. Not "sleeping around" isn't a good reason. If you are concerned, please see your doctor or health care provider.

    Please keep us updated.
