A 18-year-old male asked:

I have extra skin on the underlying side of my penis. it is really wrinkly and i believe it has to do with me constantly stretching and pulling it after my circumcision as a kid.the extra wrinkly skin is visible when my penis is both erect and not?

Amount of skin removed during circumcision varies significantly from surgeon to surgeon. There is also huge variation in both size of penis as well as how much skin is present covering an uncircumcised penis. Thus extra wrinkly skin on the underside of a circumcised penis means that the surgeon simply removed more skin on uppersurface of penis than underside & not due to stretching.

What you described is not a disorder or a health issue. Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.
