Discussing intimate health can be a man's worst nightmare, but when it comes to the penis everyone should be aware of what is considered normal and what should raise a red flag. Spots on the penis are usually painless, small and pale — generally measuring between 1 to 3 mm. They can be unsightly, but seeing a spot of this description on your penis is no reason to panic. The urologist commented that once patients understand the lumps are harmless they are not concerned, but others are still upset about the look of the lumps.

What Is Penile Cancer?
It's also called squamous cell carcinoma in situ. Doctors call Bowen's disease pre invasive. That means that there are cancer cells there but they are only in the outermost layer of skin, the epidermis. Sometimes it can spread along the skin surface.
To get an erection, nerves signal a man's body to store blood in the vessels inside the corpora cavernosa. As blood fills the chambers, the spongy tissue expands and the penis stiffens and gets longer. During ejaculation, semen which contains sperm cells and fluids flows through the urethra and out of the body through the meatus. After ejaculation, the blood flows back into the body, and the penis becomes soft again. Sometimes, growths can develop on the penis that are abnormal but are not cancers.
