    So is there no where to get advice/go other than the doctors or walk in centre?
    If this is genuine then you NEED to go to a doctor of some kind. It's unlikely that it's life threatening, but there is still a very real possibility it could be.

    Ring NHS direct first and talk to them about it. They may be able to tell you more and will also know some way for you to see a doctor confidentially (i'm pretty sure that at 17 parents don't have to be notified if you don't want them to be).

    I know showing your junk to a doctor is embarrassing but it's part of life, everyone does it at some point and trust me when i say they've seen far worse. Millions of women every year go for smear tests so there's really nothing to be embarrassed about.

    Then don't go to a local doctor. I'm sure you can go to a non-local hospital or surgery if you really need to. You can certainly go to a non-local walk in centre.

    Of course 17 year-olds parents don't get notiofied, of course it's confidential.

    And NHS ReDirect will tell you to see your GP. Going to see another GP will only really complicate things.

    Just grow up and do it. If you won't put in the effort to take a simple visit to a GP, or take any of the other advice given, why on earth should we feel inclined to help you further, or indeed to care if your own stupidity does you serious harm?

    Any need to be rude? The last thing I want is my dad finding out.
    And It's not like immediate danger.

    You don't know that! There's a real possibility it could be.

    You need to get over yourself and go see a doctor. It doesn't have to be one your dad knows and even if it was they are bound by law to be confidential about it. You have been given multiple options on here that would enable you to get around your father or his friends knowing.

    I'm sorry but you really have no excuses, particularly as it has been something you noticed 2 years ago!
    If you refuse to see a doctor through petty embarassment then you are a fool in my opinion.

    (or this whole thing is a bad troll thread)

    This really is not a troll thread. I wasnt sure 2 years ago if it was normal, but now I'm pretty sure it's not.

    Go see the GP - even if he is friends with your father there is something called patient-doctor confidentiality.

    It is against patient confidentiality to tell you dad, whether he is a doctor or not. She could lose her job if she tells him without a good reason. I think you should see her and just as you are leaving ask her not to mention it to any other doctors, including your dad.

    Simple and easy solution is go and see your GP.
    Other solution, but in a round about way is go to A&E where you will wait ages and annoy the doctors as its not an emergency.

    You could to to the local NHS Walk In Centre, but they will probably send you to your GP.

    If you have worries about your GP, then don't they have seen it all before and they shouldn't tell your Father, they could lose their job if they did.

    I know I should go, but I dont think I can face it, even the receptionst's knows who I am. And they do this thing where you ring, then a doctor rings you back to give advice/say if you need to come in, and it could be one I know.
    So I CANT!
