2 days ago I noticed a very small whitish spot on my penis.

Customer Question

hi there,2 days ago I noticed a very small whitish spot on my penis. It's the only one of its kind in the area. There is no itching, pain, discomfort or any other symptoms whatsoever. My reason for seeking advice is really for peace of mind because I saw a sex worker 9 and a half weeks ago, and part took in unprotected oral and protected sex. However I got tested at the GU clinic twice after this event and was tested negative for STD's, but I know that these tests don't pick up everything and sometimes it can be weeks before you have symptoms. Or could it possibly be an insect bite? What I also want to know is that with my current partner is it still safe for me to have unprotected sexual activities with this slight problem, or I hope that it is slight anyway. Please see attached pictures. Thank you

Hello'

It looks like a flat wart, or musclosum.

both are caused by a virus.

The docs office can do a magnified exam and remove it.

Ok but is it still safe for me to have both unprotected oral and vaginal sex with my partner? In its full erect state and low light the spot is barely visible.

Ok thank you one final question, could i have possibly contracted this through unprotected oral sex with s sex worker, bear in mind that event took place 9 and a half weeks from when i first noticed it. Or do you think its just something iv caught by other means? Do you really think this could be a std?
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 5 months ago.

Warts and musculosum are all over the environment.

they can also be sexually transmitted and from skin to skin contact.

OK please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-dr-thomas/
