There are many conditions that can cause penile lesions. Causes of lesions can be infectious, premalignant (pre-cancerous), or malignant (cancer) while others are benign (meaning cause no harm).
It is important to have any lesion evaluated as early cancerous lesions can be treated effectively with minimal need for surgical intervention. Infectious lesions can grow causing significant harm and spread to partners.
While this can be an embarrassing complaint, the best strategy for all men with lesions is a thorough evaluation, diagnosis and treatment if needed.
