Several weeks ago, I woke up one morning with a pain in my pee hole. It was only painful when it was touched. When I opened the pee hole and looked, all I saw was a little redness in the corner, more on one side than the other. There were no other obvious symptoms: no burning, blistering, discharge, growths, pain while peeing, nothing.
After that first day, it gradually, but slowly, improved. During that time, I was tested for UTI, herpes, HIV, and syphillis: all negative. I even took a weeks worth of antibiotics and acyclovir (which I did on my own) before being tested for herpes.
After about 4 weeks the pain is all but gone but there is still a little redness. If the trend continues, I think it will be gone completely in one or two days.
If it was cancer, would it go away and return to normal like it has?
I have an appointment with a urologist next week. If it's all gone can and/or will he give me a biopsy or any other test to prove or disprove anything?
Current medical status: Negative tests for UTI, herpes, HIV, syphillis
Current medical treatment: Doctor prescribed an antibiotic for infection (sufamethoxlose ?) I also took acyclovir before the herpes test because I already had that medication on hand since I have oral herpes.
If it was penile cancer it would look like an ulceration that tends to become worse in time. Cancer never returns to normal spontaneously without treatment. Discrete redness is not a sign of penile cancer and the urologist probably wonât take any biopsy.
