I have noticed that I have a discoloration on my testicles. It is a light color with pink. At first it started small then it got bigger it is almost fully covered my left testicle and its also on the right as well not as much though. Also I noticed its just below the head of my penis. It does not hurt. Sometimes my testicles itch but thats it. It is weird and I would like it to go away my doctor said it was normal. But I don't find it very appealing and I don't think women do either. Thanks for your time and expert advice.

If that discoloration of the scrotum is not caused by any skin infection there is nothing to be worry about.

You may consult a dermatologist about proper diagnosis and any treatment if necessary.
