Phimosis Treatment

Phimosis is a condition of the penis that occurs in some adults and children who aren’t circumcised. If you have phimosis, your foreskin can’t be pulled back (retracted). It may look like your penis has rings around the tip. Having phimosis isn’t necessarily a problem. It only becomes a problem when it causes symptoms. This could be when phimosis is severe and leaves an opening the size of a pinhole. Actually, there are two types of phimosis: physiologic and pathologic. The physiologic type is associated with childhood and usually resolves as you age. The pathologic type is associated with a condition called balanitis xerotica obliterans (BXO). The foreskin (also called the prepuce) is tight when babies are born but usually gets looser by the time the child is 2 years old. During the years between ages 2 and 6, the foreskin loosens up and begins to separate from the head of their penis. Phimosis can also happen after childhood. Phimosis is found in virtually all newborns, and then the foreskin changes gradually so that it can be pulled back. It’s estimated that only 1% of people still have phimosis when they're 16 years old. Phimosis may happen to someone with an uncircumcised penis. The foreskin becomes so tight that you can’t retract it (pull it back) to expose the glans. It happens to almost all infants, and most children grow out of it. Many times, there’s no reason to treat it. Sometimes, though, you might need treatment and a common suggestion is surgery. Talk to AJAY HEALTH CLINIC to make the best choice.
