Penile biopsy?

Recommended Posts

Divon

Hi!

I have these red dots and rashes that keep popping up and never dissapearing entirely on my penis head. Although I think they appeared from my skin being weakend by HSV I know with certainity that having them visable does not mean HSV shedding since I´ve had them PCR¨d twice.

I have another thread that discusses this so I dont wanna go into detail about my symptoms, instead I wanna ask about biopsy on the penis. Is it very painful to do a biopsy on the penis head and can it damage the skin in a way that never fully regenerates? What can be discovered through biopsy? Do you have to suggest a couple of things that they test the biopsy for or will they detect whatever is going on either way?

I can add that these symptoms have been going on for at least 10 months now without ever going away entirely. They make the penis head very sensitive and they become much worse from erection / rubbing.

Hi there

I had a biopsy done, and it was not that big of a deal. It did´nt hurt and I have no visible scars on my penisglans. I do allso get the red dots on my penisglans, and they come and go, and that  has been going on since december 2016. 

The result of the biopsy, was that it was probably Lichen sclerouses or Lichen planus. But it was only 90% conclusiv. I dont believe in that, and other doctors tells me the same, that they dont think that it is the culprit. 

I am still on the search of my symptoms, and Iam going to see a specialist in Candida tomorrow, to see if that could be it.

I see, I have a lot of questions but too tired to write them right now :). Keep me posted!

Just ask, and I will tell :-)

I went to the candida specialist yesterday, that was quite an experience :-) 

A lady in her mid 40´s, hippi I would say. She was very sure that I suffer form a serious Candida infection, And she could tell by holding a pack of yest up to my face and then pushing down on my arm :-):-)

Well I am gonna try this out, tho it was expensive. I am going on a very strict diet for a month. I can´t eat suggar, gluten, different kinds of meat, coffe, alcohol ect...

It´s going to be a hard month but I can do it.

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?

      The full article is behind a paywall but you could write the the authors and request a copy.

      The jury is still out as there needs to be additional experiments. Editas' results make me believe dosing was insufficient among other issues.
