Angiokeratoma of the scrotum is also known as angiokeratoma of Fordyce, the type of skin condition that develops on the genitalia. Men would notice small lumps on the scrotum, but also on the shaft of the penis, while women will find them on the vulva, however it has a bigger impact on men. Among the five types of angiokeratoma, the Fordyce type is the most common and it is most likely to appear in people in their 40’s, although it is known to expand and increase with age. Their exact cause is unknown, but specialists have discovered that a possible factor in their appearance is an increased blood vessel pressure that may dilate or rupture the capillaries.
This scrotal skin condition is harmless, painless, asymptomatic and non-contagious, but it must not be mistaken for Fordyce spots and in order to know for sure, it is imperative that you contact a highly trained physician with plenty of experience in the field. At Renew Skin & Health Clinic there are practitioners with many years of experience who will offer you a proper physical examination during which they will assess your medical history and run all the tests needed in order to determine the nature of your skin condition. If you are indeed suffering from angiokeratoma of Fordyce on the scrotum, you will have to decide whether you want to undergo a private treatment for their removal or not.
Angiokeratoma of the scrotum is represented by small genital skin lumps of 2 to 5 mm in diameter that can change color from dark red to purple and black. They are practically harmless, unless you feel the need to scratch them, thus damaging the area and causing them to bleed, then scaly surfaces may form. You could decide not to undergo a private treatment for angiokeratoma of scrotum removal, but if they do bleed, you must contact a specialist.
The highly trained physicians at Renew Skin & Health Clinic perform the scrotal angiokeratoma removal with radiosurgery (electrodessication), a non-invasive private treatment that guarantees positive results only if applied by specialists. Although there are other cosmetic procedures for angiokeratoma removal such as cryotherapy and excision, the CO2 laser ablation therapy and radiosurgery through electrodessication have proven highly efficient. Radiosurgery uses high frequency radio beams that work solely upon the areas of your skin affected by genital skin lumps. Their goal is to cauterize and accelerate the healing process, thus preventing scaring, bleeding or any kind of infection.
Angiokeratoma of the scrotum or the Fordyce type represented by painless and non-contagious genital skin lumps don’t necessarily require a private treatment, but you can decide to remove them for cosmetic reasons. Sometimes they can be mistaken for STIs or STDs and in order to be free yourself from worries, questions and stress, we warmly recommend you to contact our Head Office at Renew Skin & Health Clinic, book an appointment for a proper physical examination and find out what skin condition you are dealing with. From there you have to decide whether to undergo angiokeratoma of scrotum removal with radiosurgery (electrodessication) which assures you much better results than invasive cosmetic procedures.
