At best it could be a mole

At worst, a flat genital wart

It isn't raised no pain. A flat genital wart? I had that in college and got it treated and haven't had warts in 12 years. Which direction are you leaning towards?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It's Super smooth almost like it's just a freckle but it's new
Dermatologist: DocPhilMD, Doctor replied 2 years ago

If you have had warts I am leaning wart

Hello

I Have a different answer for you.

These pictures are of various forms of hyperpigmentation. It does not appear to be a wart at all.

Any hyperpigmentation [any of your pics] in this area is atypical by definition and potentially serious.

See a dermatologist specifically, or urologist.

I am basing this on the picture you have presented.

These pictures are not warts at all per se.

Even if there is a warty aspect, the hyperpigmentation in all of these pics is potentially serious, and some are clearly serious lesions in need of removal.

Don't wait on this, don't self treat it, see a doc immediately.

I am a double board certified US doctor. You can save time and find me in medical by request for future questions, for fast and accurate answers.

OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

Is this cancerous potentially?
Dermatologist: DrRussMd, Internist/homeopath replied 2 years ago

Yes

As I said, any hyperpigmentation in this location is potentially a problem.

Melanoma must be ruled out.

even benign looking pigmentation in this area needs to be checked.

Based on the pictures you sent, this is concerning.

Please click a positive on the rating scale at the top of the page.

Come back as needed.

Keep in mind these pics aren't mine it just looks like it. I'm actually black
Dermatologist: DrRussMd, Internist/homeopath replied 2 years ago

Yes

I am basing this on your pic

If it looks anything like this it can still be a problem.

You need to see a dermatologist or urologist, or internal medicine doctor board certified such as myself.

That is the bot***** *****ne.

Please note: we are only paid per positive rating, not for our time.

Please see the scale at the top of the page and click a positive [hopefully excellent].

Find me anytime by request for fast answers, accurate, safe and comprehensive.

Let me know how it goes.
