Circumcision - overview, causes, symptoms, risk, and treatment

Circumcision is a surgical procedure in which the excess foreskin from the head of the penis is removed. It is used to treat and prevent a variety of medical problems including phimosis, paraphimosis, balanitis, and balanoposthitis.

Symptoms

Circumcision may cause discomfort or pain, but your doctor can discuss safe and effective pain treatment options with you ahead of time. While it is uncommon, the penis can become infected. Infection symptoms include persistent redness or swelling. A fever may accompany these symptoms.

Diagnosis

During the diagnosis, the urologist will ask a few questions about the patient's medical history as well as any prior infections or injuries to the penis. The urologist additionally inquires whether the patient's sexual life has been impacted by foreskin-related issues such as phimosis, paraphimosis, balanitis, and so on. The urologist then does a thorough physical examination of the foreskin and penis. To rule out the presence of urinary tract infections, the urologist may additionally order urine tests or a swab from the foreskin. Phimosis, a condition affecting the foreskin, is thought to be a risk factor for Type 2 Diabetes. As a result, adults with phimosis may be subjected to blood or urine testing.

Treatment Procedure

Laser circumcision is considered as the most promising and lasting treatment for phimosis and other foreskin-related disorders. The urologist removes the excess foreskin from the head of the penis during laser circumcision.
