i have just noticed a very small spot on my penis like a wart. IT is painless. I have had contact with the skin of someone who is not my partner,buy not intercourse. Could this be herpes or genital warts
Hi--would it be possible for you to post a photo on this page? If that's not possible can you describe this in detail?

there is only one spot. It is halfway up my penis.It is very small and has no colour. like a pimple

Sorry for the delay John. In that case it doesn't sound at all like herpes or a venereal wart. Most likely it's what's called a Fordyce spot which is a benign cyst that is not an infection and not cancerous. These usually disappear on their own in a few days to maybe two weeks. Since I can't see it it would be a good idea to have your doctor look but there's really no need for concern
