For several months now i’ve had a very small bump on the underside of the left side of my penis head. I think earlier, a couple months ago it might’ve been very slightly itchy, but just slightly and just occasionally. I didn’t really pay any attention to it, until I started to and then it was all I could do to not think about it.
So then I started checking myself out more closely recently and noticed another bump on the right side, and that’s when I decided to go to the dermatologist. I never felt the other bump on the right side, I only found it while looking for it.
Today, the dermatologist looked at it and said the left side looks somewhat unremarkable, But that the one on the right side, he couldn’t decide whether it was a genital wart or thought it could be Lichen Planus. He sought a second opinion within the office with a female doctor, and they both looked and discussed and thought they believed it closely resembled lichen planus with a little white striation they thought they both saw.
So, they did a small biopsy or tissue sample of the one on the right side and send it off for testing. Of course I’m sweating it and stressing about it now. I noticed tonight that the very small spot they did the biopsy on seems to be leaking a little clear fluid because I dried it off and gone back and looked at it again and the area is a little wet again. Of course, like a dummy, I didn’t follow their instructions they handed me to leave the Band-Aid off and I took it off and took a shower tonight Now I’m following their instructions for the wound care which told me to put some Neosporin and a Band-Aid back on it.
I’ve Internet researched ad nauseum, concerned that it was herpes, or general warts etc.… Now that I’m reading about Lichen Planus, maybe I actually wish it was genital warts, as 20 years ago navy doctors froze one off the top of my penis. Lichen planus sounds very scary!
Please look at my photos and give me your thoughts regarding what you think it could be as my biopsy results won’t come back for a week and I’m seriously sweating it!
