Photo might help: Brown patches skin on penis head after circumcision at 17 years old. Probably just a hyperpigmentation as you grow older. If that is the case you don't have much to worry about. On the other hand if you have any other urinary symtoms such as burning, red urine, irritation of the skin of penis, etc.. it may be worthwhile to check with your doctor. A photograph may help. Thank you and good luck !!! ...Read more

Best trick it to then gently apply traction on the gauze and then using a finger, push the skin away from the gauze. Do not pull the gauze away. There will be a second of pain and a little blood. ...Read more

There is a lot of pus on my penis due to circumcision. I found them after taking my guaze off. How do I get rid of them?

Circumcision: Is there increased redness, swelling, & pain along with the "pus"? Is pus clear or opaque? Clear might just be serous fluid that leaks after a wound; opaque + other symptoms might be infection. See doc who performed the surgery to be checked. Follow wound care instructions given by doc. ...Read more

Does circumcision reduce sensitivity? I read that rigid band and frenulum are most sensitive part of penis. And these are removed during circ.

Yes and no: Obviously sensitivity is lost in skin removed after circumcision, but glans penis (most sensitive part of penis) is exposed to more friction ; thus more overall sensation when no longer sheathed by foreskin. Frenulum is very sensitive, but not necessarily pleasureable, thus removal during circumcision, which i do, does not adversely affect the subject. ...Read more

I have lumps or skin tags (from a bad circumcision) on the underside of my penis shaft that i want removed. How much will this procedure cost?

I have lumps or skin tags (from a bad circumcision) on the underside of my penis shaft that i want removed. How much will this procedure cost?

The "skin tags": Could possibly be hpv infection--genital warts. On men they are frequently flat, slightly raised papules, and can be very different sizes and textures. If you have ever had unprotected sex with anyone, this might be the cause. Might be a good idea to talk to a urologist as they could remove the lesions no matter what the origin. Cost would be up to insurance coverage, or what you could negotiate. ...Read more

What would be the cause of a bent penis? Bad circumcision?

What would be the cause of a bent penis? Bad circumcision?

Peyronies/NO!: A "bad circumcision" should not have any effect on the curvature of the penis. You may have a more significant problem with a condition called peyronies disease. This is a thickening of a deeper layer of tissue in the penis. See a urologist and get checked out. Perhaps you can have the "bend" fixed and the "bad circumcision" revised at the same time. ...Read more
