How to I know it's not skin cancer. What can I use so it doesn't become infected? Can I take asprin for the pain. I've been taking 2 325 asprins four times a day. Does taking asprins thin the blood and prevent healing?
Don't forget, the sore hasnt' healed in one week. It seems to get larger every day.
Are you a dermatologist. Are you familiar with skin cancer. I know cancer of the penis is extremely rare. But I used Fluorourcil before and it took away the sore spot which I thought was a mild skin cancer. This time the Fluorourcil didn't work, making me think that the cancer was deeper or more advanced (if it is cancer).
What does "Any malignant change needs to be ruled out."
Does this mean I don't have cancer, even though the sore spot hasn't healed in one week?
I Don't understand: You said, "This needs to be ruled out when the sore is increasing in size."
Do you mean that I must consider the possibility that this IS cancer because the sore is not healing and increasing in size?
Or do you mean that IT IS NOT cancer. Please clarify. I don't know what you're saying.
How do I treat the open sore if it IS cancerous?
How do I treat the open, weeping sore/lesion if it is not cancerous.
First possibility, it is an infection.
This will need an antibiotic by mouth for curing it.
But it can need a biopsy to see whether there is any cancerous change in it.
Why would it be an infection? Should I just use soap and water to clean? Or should I use a mild mixture of hydrogen peroxide.
What would cause such an infection since I have no sexual contact or have never had a sexually transmitted disease.
Does taking asprin for the pain slow down the healing process since asprin thins the blood?
Is there anything topical I could use to heal the lesion or are antibiotics the only answer?
Does taking aspirin for the pain slow down the healing process since aspirin thins the blood?
Topical antibiotic cream like neosporin can be used.
Antibiotic may not be always necessary.
I have this constant clear, sticky fluid exuding from the lesion which forms a crusty scab around the lesion area.
What is this clear sticky fluid that exudes from the sore all the time? It turns into a dry crust, then dissolves when more of the sticky fluid is exuded in sufficientt quanity to dissolve the built-up crust.
This was one of my initial questions which you never answered.
