A 23-year-old member asked:

My little brother (12 years old) has pulled his penis too hard while showering (he is circumcised) and now he has a ring-like swelling around the glans, is this an emergency or will it go away on its own? thanks

Should self cure: These tissues are tolerant of some trauma & will swell easily. As long as he is not in pain & can pee normally this should fade within a day or so.
