What is Phimosis?
Phimosis is when the foreskin is attached to the glans skin of the penis and closes the urinary canal. Every newborn has a normal adhesion, which we call physiology. This can be seen as a pathological condition by both family and some pediatricians. If the child’s urination can be observed, when the child’s urination is observed, this observation may be an indication that it is not an emergency. If the urination is not normal, the child is pissed and the foreskin swells, it requires urgent circumcision. In other cases, there is no urgency.
Emergency circumcision may be required in a child who cannot pee due to phimosis.
What is Parafimosis?
Parafimosis is a condition in which the foreskin is swollen and released by a family member or a physician by compressing the head of the penis, which we call glans. It requires urgent treatment. Otherwise, it may cause necrosis of the glans, or gangrene.
A : Child with uncircumcised phimosis
B : With the withdrawal of the foreskin, in some children, the ring-shaped foreskin compresses the head of the penis and may even cause gangrene. This condition is called Parafimosis. Surgery is urgently required.
What is Penis Fat Cyst?
They are yellow white cysts that are usually the result of the secretion of the sweat glands between the foreskin and the glans penis in children. It is a situation that worries the family. No treatment is required. It is cleaned and lost during circumcision.
