Got it that time--thanks. How long has it been there and is it perfectly flat or a bit raised?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

just noticed it today. its flat but its on the circumsision line so it feels raised unless i stretch it.

So as far as you can tell it hasn't been there for very long? Is the other dot exactly the same?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

correct. the other dot can be seen in the same picture twords the bottom right. it is pretty much the same

OK. These both look like Fordyce spots--small sebaceous cysts on the skin of the penis and nothing serious--not cancer or an STD. They can come and go but if they bother you they can be treated with tretinoin cream
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no they dont bother me....but i work 12-18 hour days and if you said it resembled a std....my wife would have some splainin' to do if ya catch my drift. thanks
