    can someone tell me what this may be? my husband noticed last night on the side of his penis head is a red spot looks like a dark red collection of blood under the skin. and underneath the head it is swollen on one side and red. says he did not catch it in his zipper. also says has no pain at all. he is not circumcised and underside of the skid is a red bump.
    also had a little white discharge when coming that is not the normal clear color. no strange odor. married for 30 years so have no other known partners. Considering be checked for STD's
    thanks for your help.

    obviously this isn't normal so his being seen and getting it checked out is a good idea. odds are it isn't std related but getting it properly checked out is the best course of action.
    Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
