I am a 30 year old male from the Qatar and I currently spotted a white spot on the head of my penis. It is not raised and does not burn, itch, or anything else.
I have never noticed the spot before but before one month it was very small, but now it become big a while. At this point the spot is purely cosmetic as it is not raised and does not have any sensation in any way.
I am curious if this is a scar or something much more serious I should be worried about.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. The lesions which you have described seem to be pearly penile papules. These are multiple, small (about 1-3mm) papules running around the circumference of the crown of the glans penis. They typically develop in men aged 20 to 40, and around 10 per cent of all men are affected. They may be mistaken for warts, are not infectious and require no treatment. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
