Customer Question
Hi, I have these...

Hi, I have these sort of slits running vertical on the bottom side of my shaft. Some are more like bumps with a slit in the middle while others are just crevices with strands of hair coming out of some of them. I have no idea what they are, can u help?

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I know it is not std related for I have not had sex yet, but that is really as best I can describe it

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
