A doctor has described a night shift horror story of when he discovered a bizarre black spot on a man’s penis.
There are many things you wouldn’t want to discover on your own, or someone else’s junk, and this alarming imperfection is certainly one of them. Take a listen below, if you dare:
Dr Benjamin Schmidt, who goes by @docschmidt on TikTok, has revealed all about the bizarre incident with one of his patients while he was working a night shift.
Dr Schmidt, hailing from St. Louis, Missouri, told his followers of the strange moment which unfolded during his postgraduate training of a patient, who complained of backache and pain whilst urinating.
The gastroenterologist then asked the man for consent to perform a genital exam, as 'it’s unusual for a man to have pain when he pees'.
Dr Schmidt told his followers: "I'm looking and there's this black spot on this guy's penis, so I asked him, 'have you ever noticed this black spot on your penis before?'
"For a brief moment, I'm thinking I've made a rare diagnosis."
The spot actually ended up being a tattoo of a scorpion - who would have guessed!
"But then he leaned forward and looked at it and laughed a little bit and said 'oh no that’s just a tattoo of a scorpion that I got in Vietnam'", Dr Schmidt said.
"It was the quickest I’ve gone from concerned to relieved to a bit grossed out and unnerved."
Elsewhere in the medical world, scientists have been warning that men’s penises are shrinking and it could have a big effect on mankind’s survival.
An award-winning scientist and reproductive epidemiologist, Dr Shanna Swan, made the shocking revelation that could shake humanity to its very core: penises are getting smaller.
In her research, published in her book Count Down, she believes microplastics and pollutants are causing babies to develop improperly, causing an overall ‘feminisation’ of society.
Dr Swan believes her findings show a ‘global existential crisis’ brewing and has pointed to the growing number of toxic chemicals such as phthalates used for food packaging, which she alleges can impact how certain hormones in the body are produced.
