Phimosis / Tight Foreskin

A condition that has embarrassed several men and often goes without the adequate medical attention it requires, phimosis or ‘tight foreskin’ refers to the inability to retract the prepuce (foreskin) of the penis over the shaft due to a narrow opening.

Treatment of Phimosis

Dr. M. Mohan Rao (or any other medical Doctor),

I think I suffer from Phimosis. A small portion of my foreskin is attached to the bottom part of my 'glans'. I wish to have this problem corrected, even though I haven't experienced any particularly harmful problems because of this (I am still a virgin). In your reply to Mike, you talk of surgey to correct Phimosis. Is this surgery same as Circumcision? Also, is it in anyway risky? When I partially retract my foreskin and touch my glans, I find the area extremely sensitive and it hurts a lot. How long will it take for the glans to get used to not having the foreskin? During this period, won't it be very painful for me? Please reply.
