Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

A 18-year-old male asked:

Urology 16 years experience
Depends, get checked: If by covered you mean you are not circumcised. This is just fine, as long as it is not tight, you can retract the foreskin, and there is no pain. If you are circumcised, this could mean that some extra skin was left on the upper surface, also not a problem. If you were not circumcised but have an irregular covering of the head of the penis, I would get it checked to ensure normal anatomy.
A 22-year-old female asked:
Dr. Simon Kimm
Urology 16 years experience
Yes.: It is possible to perform a circumcision under just local anesthesia, though this is less common than having some degree of anesthesia or sedation.
A 70-year-old male asked:
Dr. Simon Kimm
Urology 16 years experience
An uncommon problem.: Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a very rare form of prostate cancer, less than 1%. Because it is so rare, I recommend having the pathology reviewed at a specialized lab such as at Johns Hopkins or the Mayo clinic. If it is confirmed as SCC, treatment can vary, from surgery, to radiation, to chemotherapy. I'd seek help from a center that specializes in prostate cancer.

They did this some time ago. I do not know what the procedure is called but they put gel on me and saw everything on a mini TV. They ruled out cancer.
