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.

      So ur saying the herbalife was the key?? Olive leaf extract and pro biotic are good? How many mgs of Lysine did you take a day?

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
