Paraphimosis is a male genital problem that requires immediate medical attention. In this condition, the foreskin gets trapped behind the head of the penis and doesn’t retract. If not treated in time, this condition can cut off the circulation to the tip of the penis and cause permanent damage. This condition affects males who are partially circumcised or completely uncircumcised.
