Hi, I have got a white spot on the head of my penis. Everytime I scrape it off it comes back. Do you know what it is?

Customer: Yes
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No

Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Could you please post a picture of that for me on this page?

Please do so

Here is the picture

Got it--hold on please

How long have you had that?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I dont have the amount required at the moment

The phone call offer was automated and you don't have to accept it

But how long have you had that?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Over 1 year but thought it would go off but it’s not

Nothing serious--not herpes or a genital wart or any kind of infection

And not cancer

It's just a benign cyst--maybe from a blocked oil gland

Instead of trying to scrape it off I suggest you try over the counter topical tea tree oil applied twice a day for two weeks

That should get rid of it, but, if not, a dermatologist can remove it surgically or with a CO2 laser

Please let me know if you need any more information

Ok, Thank you very much for your time.
