A 16-year-old male asked:

I have more skin on the right side of my penis after getting circumcised. can this be the reason why i have a slight bent unerect penis and a curved erect penis? should i get re-circumcised? do i have a higher chance of having other penile problems?

Uneven circumcision is not cause for penile curvature unless too much skin was removedon same side as curve occurs. Questioning need for recircumcision suggests that some excess foreskin remains, if so, curvature is how your penis was formed originally & is now obvious as you have gone thru puberty. Revision might be considered if curve-sided skin is tight & not loose when erect, otherwise not.
