White patch or ring below foreskin
Posted on: 03/03/2009
Hi. I'm a 20-year-old male and have had obvious sebaceous glands from the age of 14. However, I've noticed a white patch or ring just below my foreskin. Could this be cancer? Vitiligo? I've also noticed some small white patches on the testicular area.
It certainly does not sound like cancer. Cancer is usually firm, irregular, like a brown colored little cauliflower. It could be vitiligo or eczema. You should probably show a dermatologist to be sure. Good luck!
