Is It Possible For To Have Phimosis After Circumcision
Yes: It is certainly possible but depends ona few things. Was this a newborn circumcision or a circumcision performed as an adult? Did they leave a lot of skin behind? Was there any other surgery performed at the same time? There are some strange diseases that can cause this like balanitis xerotica obliterans patricio c. Gargollo http://portal.Childrens.Com/wps/poc?Uri=doctor:514. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Circumcision is best: As it is a permanent cure. Alternatives are prescription strength steroid cream like beamethasone or kenalog, (triamcinolone) applied twice daily to the stretched tight phimotic area twice daily for 2 - 3 months. By no means always successful/ or prepucioplsty/dorsal slit/swedish procedure whereby tight foreskin on top of penis is cut vertically & sutured transversely. This both loosens & preserves foreskin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm 16 and have balanitis.I also have phimosis from what I have read on the Internet.Haw can I cure this without circumcision?
My friend is suffering from Phimosis. But he do not want to try circumcision. So any other method or home remedy for this problem?
Doctor can help: A primary care doctor or a urologist can help loosen and stretch the foreskin (and teach a patient how to work on it at home). Corticosteroid creams are sometimes used, and may help. If all that is tried for a while without success, then a patient can ask a urologist what the different surgical options are. There are surgical ways to loosen the foreskin without cutting it off. ...Read more

Had a circumcision 6 months ago due to phimosis and i cant say is looking better.I have a ugly scarline that really bothers me.How to get rid of it?
Plastic surgery: If it is bothering you so much, you may consult a plastic surgeon for cosmetic surgery. Remember, plastic surgeons do not come cheap. If it is not interfering with urination or sex, I would recommend to leave it alone. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is circumcision for a case of phimosis that has scar tissue and can't retract at all 100%, absolutely necessary?
Surgery is required: Discuss with urologist. Dr. May be able to remove foreskin scar & widen prepucial opening enough for you to retain most of remaining foreskin if you desire, but surgery can not be avoided in presence of scar tissue causing the phimosis. Not every urologist either wishes to undertake this or has experience with this approach. ...Read more

What qualifies as a botched adult circumcision? I got circumcised for phimosis and i feel it is a botched job. I have painful tightness on the shaft behind the sulcus and tight penoscrotal web. I can't get fully erect and it hurts - the amount of skin c
I : I recommend you seek an opinion from another urologist. They will take a history and examine you before an opinion on wheter or not the surgery was "botched" is made. On the other hand, you can go back to the doctor that performed the circumcision and inform him/her of your concerns. Either way you need to be seen to have these issues addressed and hopefully resolved. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is circumcision the only options for a case of phimosis with scar tissue? Is it the only option? The only thing to do? Or would the alternative treatments/options work? The steroid creams - betamethasone, stretching, preputioplasty, etc? What about partia
You choose: The choice of treatment depends directly on the risk/benefit assessment and your personal opinion. I agree with the respondents. A circumcision will be curative. Steroid creams work quite well and should be tried first if you desire an "intact" prepuce. If these fail, and you still do not want a circ, then you can opt for operative stretching/slit/or partial circ all of which can recur. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Probably yes it is: Circumcision will certainly take care of the problem. Alternative would be to try a course of prescription strength steroid cream such as Betamethasone or Kenalog (triamcinolone). It is applied twice daily to thtight are of foreskin whilst retracting which helps to demarcate the phimotic area. Has to tried for at least a couple of months. Remember always to pull foreskin back over glans penis after retraction. ...Read more
May be or ...: If circumcised, your bothersome event from foreskin would be post-circumcision adhesion onto glans penis, which is usually not bothersome but may usually be corrected easily, or still redundant foreskin, to which recurrent balanoposthitis may still occur. So, likely, it is not a real phimosis. To confirm, see Urologist for confirmation and decide what you may need realistically. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
