Treatment

Diagnosis

Diagnosis of phimosis begins with a simple, routine physical examination. Your urologist may ask questions about your medical history, symptoms, sexual activity, and any injury to the penis. The doctor may also examine the penis for signs of infection,  tight foreskin and related symptoms of phimosis.

The first thing that the urologist will do is ask about your symptoms and physically diagnose the condition. The urologist will try nonsurgical treatments to reduce the foreskin swelling such as pressing the penis with a hand or wrapping the penis in a tight bandage. After the swelling has been reduced, your urologist should be able to pull the foreskin back to its regular position. If the foreskin remains stuck there, the urologist might need to perform a circumcision to treat phimosis.

Surgery

Laser treatment inflicts very little pain as compared to traditional procedures. So, it is now considered the best treatment for phimosis which is also known as the inability to retract the foreskin behind the glans penis. Not only adults, but it can also be done in infants. Moreover, it is beneficial for patients who are hemophilic or have blood-related issues. At Pristyn Care in Bhopal, the entire surgery through laser technique takes around 15 to 20 minutes and involves a quicker recovery.

Circumcision in adults

Circumcision is more associated with adults than in infants. Patients who undergo circumcision usually do it for religious or medical reasons. Here is what you can expect during the surgery –

  • During the procedure – The anesthesiologists administer anesthesia before the surgery to sedate your surgical site for a painless experience. The procedure can take anywhere between 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the surgical expertise of the urologists and the medical health of the patient. The doctor clips the foreskin away from the tip of the penis and removes the excess skin. The skin is then cauterized or stitched back to the shaft with sutures that eventually dissolve. You can go home on the same day of the surgery if your doctor sees you fit.
  • After the surgery – You’re likely to experience swelling and bruising during the initial hours after the surgery. Applying ice to your groin for 10 to 20 minutes after every two hours can help reduce pain after the surgery. It is also important to change your dressing frequently, as suggested by your medical practitioner, to keep your penis clean and prevent infection. Since recovery may take around 2 weeks, depending on the health condition of the patient, you may have to take a week off from work.

Circumcision in children

Circumcision in infants can be performed on the second or third day after the birth. Some people prefer circumcising their children during later stages in life due to social, religious, or medical purposes. It is important to consult a physician regarding your child’s health before their circumcision procedure. If you are considering circumcision for your child, here are some things you should know-

  • Preparing your baby for the procedure – First, consult the doctor regarding your baby’s health and all the risks and complications involved during the procedure. In some cases, when the baby is born premature, involving problems related to penile health, etc., parents can delay the procedure. Your medical practitioner will explain all the possible risks and complications related to the surgery, and after you have signed the consent form, the doctor will begin the procedure.
  • During the procedure – If the circumcision is done for the newborn, they’ll be awake during the procedure. Once the procedure is done, the doctor will inject an anesthetic near the base of the penis to ease the pain. Doctors may choose to apply cream reliever ointment as an alternative to anesthetic injection. The surgeon inserts clamps or plastic rings to clip off the excess foreskin. The ring that stays on usually falls off a few days after the circumcision. The surgery usually takes around 10 minutes, and you can leave with your baby a few hours after the procedure after consulting the doctor.
  • After the procedure – The procedure may make your kid fussy and irritable and so it is not advisable to put pressure on their penis. The tip of the penis may appear red and swollen, along with a yellow crust on the tip as well. This should go away on its own within 7 to 10 days after the procedure. You can gently wash the penis and regularly change the bandages while changing their diapers. You can use lubrication to keep the penis from sticking to the diaper. Changing diapers regularly can help ward off infection.
