What is Phimosis?

Phimosis is a tightening of the foreskin over the head of the penis that prevents the foreskin from being pulled back. It is fairly common in newborn boys.

Phimosis can make erections painful. In extreme cases, phimosis will make urination difficult. Phimosis can cause balanitis.

Symptoms of Phimosis

The most common symptoms of phimosis are:

  • inability to retract foreskin
  • straining during urination
  • thin stream of urine
  • recurrent urinary infections

Can Phimosis be Treated?

Yes. One treatment option for phimosis is to gradually and gently stretch the foreskin everyday for several weeks with the aid of warm and soapy water.

If phimosis is causing problems with urination, circumcision may also be necessary.

Complications of Phimosis

Complications of phimosis include:

  • trouble urinating
  • infections under the foreskin
  • painful erections
  • a malignant growth (rare cases)
  • narrowing of penile opening
