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 more

In other situations, scar tissue will entrap nerves as improvement may require surgical release. ...Read more
Excision: Scar tissue is rarely removed from sites of organ damage but rather from cutaneous areas where the scar is visible and occasionally painful. At this time it may be widely excised but to prevent recurrence a steroid can be injected into the would like Kenalog (triamcinolone) which produces a strong anti inflammatory response. ...Read more
Unclear: I'm not sure what your question is. Scar tissue is a an area of fibrous tissue where there has been an injury. It has the same building blocks as normal tissue but they are arranged in such a way that they are usually stiffer.

Silicone gel & injet: Usually sign of unstable scar formation. Topical silicone gel coupled with either use of serial steroid injections or use of stromal cells/prp injected into scar base will improve the irritation and quiet the pain.
