Customer Question
Hello doctor. I have...

Hello doctor. I have had this red spot for about a month on the tip of my penis. I've shown a picture to the pharmacist and his conclusion was "Urethral Caruncle" he told me that I have to book an appointment with GP, the only treatment that he suggested is surgery. I've booked the appointment but it will be in two weeks time. I don't feel any pain at all and in the last two weeks, I don't see any sign of growth. Any advice of any medicament I can take in meantime?

Doctor's Assistant: Is the condition chronic, or acute?

Acute

There is really nothing to do to treat this at home quite honestly

if there are no symptoms then you don't really need to do anything

I'm not sure I agree with the diagnose

it appears to be some prolapse to me

Hi Dr.Can you please be more specific? If you don't agree with the diagnose, what do you believe that this might be? Why there is nothing I can do at home?
Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 2 months ago

I believe it is prolapse

it is when a small amount of internal tissue pushes out of the urethra

To be honest I was expecting an expert advice who would explain to me what this might be, what may be causing it and how can this be repaired, what are the risks if untreated for a long time. I totally understand that you are dealing with 100 of patients at the moment, but I don't think it's right to get general answers.
Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 2 months ago

I told you what it was

It is a prolapse. Urethral prolapse

this is when tissue from inside the urethra pushing out. Similar to a hemorrhoid but of the penis

The cure is surgical removal of the prolapsed tissue
