A urologist can help: If you can break the adhesion by gently pealing back the foreskin, then you may wish to see a urologist who may be able to by using a topical anesthetic in the office. Sometimes, if the adhesions are extensive, a small surgical procedure may be necessary.

No, should be loose: Assume you are referring to foreskin adhesion or penile skin bridging. Latter is where part of the original circumcision scar has grown attached to the penile glans. This can easily and painlessly be divided in the office 30 - 40 minutes after application of local anesthetic cream. We could easily confirm this by your sending a photograph of this problem via cell-phone for review.

See urologist: If you have foreskin still attached, you would have to have foreskin removed from the head of your penis by a urologist. It is not damage anything, but doesn't hurt to retract foreskin or cause a problem when you have an erection? if so definitely see urologist.

Here are some ...: For most of the cases, the adhesion between foreskin and glans penis can be tediously separated with skillful surgery in conjunction with modified circumcision if gentle manual separation with topical use of steroid cream fails to separate. For technical detail and realistic expectation, ask the intended surgeon - urologist - timely.
