This is Dr. David

the penis skin is more af a GU domain or the domaine of the urologist

I would go to John's Hopkins and consult with urolgoist there.

or you can go to Boston and Dana Farber or Mass General Urology to see specialist there.

but most likely the doctors there will want to have a biopsy of the penile skin to help get a diagnosis for you and to help guide treatment recommendations.

university of Toronto Urology department has a huge department which staffs all the major hosopitals in Toronto

I would consult with urologist at either Princess Margaret or Sunnybrook Hospitals in Toronto. I'm sure they will be able to find a specialist there to examine you and evaluate your skin.

but again, most likely they will want a biopsy of the skin

good luck
