Does A Baby Boy Who Is Circumcised Need Circumcision When He Is An Adult?
Assalammu’alaikum, I want to ask, if a baby is born circumcised, is that a problem ?? and when it grows up, does it need to be circumcised?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, what is exactly the condition of the circumcised penis? Has it been checked by a doctor and it was declared already circumcised?
The condition of the penis which has been circumcised since birth, which is said to be a layman, can refer to several conditions in the medical realm, often paraphymosis or hypospadias.
Paraphimosis is a condition where the foreskin of the penis (prepuce) is pulled up to the base with a strong enough (tight), so it is difficult to be pulled back to the tip of the penis. This makes the penis head look clear and not covered by the foreskin, so it looks like it has been circumcised. In some cases, paraphimosis can also appear accompanied by severe pain, swelling, and redness around the penis so that the baby will become more fussy because of it.
While hypospadias is a disorder in which the urethra (orificeum urethra external) is not right at the tip of the penis, but can be above it, underneath, or also elsewhere. This condition can also make the penis foreskin grow imperfectly, so that the penis head often becomes exposed and looks like circumcision.
Both paraphymosis and hypospadias do not necessarily eliminate the suggestion of a man to be circumcised. In patients with paraphimosis, circumcision is actually useful for releasing the foreskin of the penis that is too tight so as not to clamp the penis, and does not prevent the smooth flow of blood to and from the penis that is at risk of causing tissue death. Meanwhile, in patients with hypospadias, before circumcision, doctors will usually improve the position of the opening of the urinary opening, then patch the former urinary opening with an excess of foreskin of the penis that has not been circumcised.
You should check your baby directly to the doctor or pediatrician, right? With his competence and experience, the doctor certainly understands the exact steps such as what needs to be done to overcome the condition of your child.
Hope this helps ...
