What is Phimosis?

Phimosis is a condition in males in which the foreskin doesn’t pull back from the tip of the penis. Every boy is born with a tight foreskin. With age, the foreskin starts to retract and by the time they turn 3, this no longer remains a problem as the foreskin completely loosens up. This is a common problem in young boys which usually gets cured on its own. But in severe cases, when urination becomes difficult or pain is severe, treatment becomes essential

Causes

  • Repeated urinary tract infections
  • Infection in the foreskin
  • Rough handling of the foreskin
  • Trauma or injury to the foreskin

Symptoms

  • Pain while urinating
  • Traces of blood in the urine
  • Inability to empty the bladder properly
  • Pain in the penis while erection
  • Redness, soreness, or swelling of the penis

Treatment

Diagnosis of Phimosis

The diagnosis of phimosis is a simple one. The surgeon makes note of the full medical history of the patient by asking questions regarding any prior infection or injuries to the penis. There can be some questioning pertaining to any impact that might have occurred during sexual activity. Followed by the questioning round, the doctor does a physical examination in which he thoroughly looks at the penis and foreskin. To confirm, the doctor recommends a urinalysis to check for any urinary tract infections or perform a swab test by taking a sample from the foreskin area to check for bacteria.

Surgery

The surgical removal of the foreskin is known as circumcision. In this procedure, the surgeons frees the foreskin from the penis’s head and the extra skin is removed. The benefits of circumcision are discussed below-

  • Lower risk of urinary tract infections
  • Lower chances of sexually transmitted diseases in men
  • Decreasing the risk of penile cancer in males and cervical cancer in females
  • Preventing conditions such as balanitis and balanoposthitis
  • Preventing phimosis and paraphimosis

Is phimosis curable?

Yes phimosis is curable. Circumcision is the procedure to treat phimosis once and for all. Laser circumcision is the safest way to remove the tight foreskin from the penis. ZSR circumcision is a modern painless technique of circumcision that is minimally invasive in nature. It is better to undergo any of these advanced circumcision procedures than complex open circumcision surgery.

Are phimosis and paraphimosis the same?

Phimosis and paraphimosis are both common foreskin problems but are different from each other.

In phimosis, the prepuce becomes tight and cannot be retracted over the glans penis. It is very common in babies and young boys. In older men, the problem may occur due to chronic penile infection and inflation in the foreskin and the penis. The tight foreskin also causes problems in urination and any sexual activity as well.

On the other hand, in paraphimosis, the foreskin can be retracted but cannot be pulled forward again. It mostly occurs if the foreskin is retracted immediately after a medical procedure. Paraphimosis leads to swelling of the glans penis and increases pressure to the retracted foreskin. The stuck foreskin forms a constricted ring around the penis. The condition prevents the flow of blood from reaching the penis, which may cause damage to the penile tissue. 

While phimosis is not a medical emergency, paraphimosis is. Paraphimosis needs medical treatment at the earliest

Benefits of circumcision

Medical practitioners consider circumcision to be highly effective for penile problems like phimosis. The primary benefits include:

  • Reduced risk of STIs in men
  • Protection against penile cancer
  • Lesser chances of urinary tract infections
  • Prevents smegma build-up 
  • Lowers the risk of cervical cancer in their female sexual partners
  • Prevents balanitis (inflammation of the glans penis) and balanoposthitis (inflammation of both foreskin and the glans)

Following are the advantages of laser circumcision over open surgery:

  • Non-invasive procedure 
  • Completes within 15-20 minutes
  • Painless procedure- with the use of anesthesia
  • Outpatient procedure
  • No stitches, wounds, or scars
  • Resume work from the next day
  • Fast and smooth recovery
  • No need for daily dressing
