Yes it is: Circumcision is sure way of eliminating this problem. Alternative is not as certain, but often works, is prescription strength steroid cream applied to tight phimotic area twice daily for a few weeks.

Good decision: You will feel much better about 4 - 6 weeks after surgery. Thus, don't be concerned.
A 37-year-old member asked:

What can I do to make my tight foreskin retract so that I can go for circumcision?

Not necessary: Surgeon will retract foreskin prior to circumcision. Will make a small incision to permit retraction & sterilize penile skin, if necessary. Cirumcision will then be performed with foreskin removal.
