3. Radiation dermatitis
4. Scabes
5. Varicocele

Varicocele - compression of the left renal vein by the superior mesenteric artery which leads to back up of the left testicular vein.

Varicocele is my guess. Kind of a scarey picture.

Fordyce's angiokeratomas. This can occur on the labia. Have seen this in pregnancy.

There is increased venous pressure so it could probably occur with a varicocele.

OK, first, I opened this link while sitting in a public airport (not knowing what it was) and of course some older lady was walking by and gave me quite a look...in any case, I am going with the consensus here of varicocele.

Thanks for the challenge doc, now can you help me explain to that nice older lady what is really going on with me?

M Scott: I guess I should have posted "NSFW" (not suitable for work) or "NSFA" (Not suitable for airport). At least you gave that passenger something to think about. hahaha
