    Penile cancer worries

    Ugh this is embarrassing but I feel I should post it.

    Basically I've had this weird like lumpy tissue thing o my penis just below the head for as long as I can remember. Maybe like 5/6 years I think. It always there and never gone away but like It doesn't cause pain and I have no other symptoms. I am still a virgin.

    I'm just worried about what this could be. I am 19.

    Thanks

    If you've had this for 5-6 years, without any apparent change, it's not going to be anything sinister; and given your circumstances it won't be an STI. You may have a 'pearly papule', which is totally harmless.

    Edited to add: the majority of penile cancer cases derive from the HPV virus, which is virtually impossible to get without sexual contact. The chances of you having it at 19, virgin or not, are zero - and even if you were older, it's an extremely rare cancer, with around 600 men diagnosed each year, compared to the tens of thousands of common cancers diagnosed.

    In short, you have nothing to worry about!

    Speak proper, Fish! You know we get complaints about "street parlance"

    "Penile cancer" at your age is a load of cock and bull!
