I have several noticeable abnormalities that look like scar

This answer was rated:

i have several noticeable abnormalities that look like scar tissue on my penis. some are on the part of the shaft that connect the penis and scrotum (technically looks as though its on the scrotum) and one or two on the shaft. Also started noticing dark patches of skin near the head of my penis? I find this to be quite mortifying...
If a thick white substance comes out of them then these are small cysts.

They may or may not be related to the shaving.

It is also possible that they are ingrown hairs though ingrown hairs usually cause the overlying skin to turn red and the discharge from the hairs tends to be yellow or green.

These are the most likely causes, but, especially with skin diseases and skin problems there is no substitute for having a doctor actually LOOK at the problem.

Sometimes a skin biopsy is needed to cement the diagnosis.

I hope this has been helpful.
