Handling Of The Remaining Skin From Circumcision Sutures?
want to taya, I was circumcised already 15 years and just realized that if there is skin left over the stitches under the head of the penis near the frenulum. The size of the remaining skin stitches are about 1.5cm and when held therein feels hard (does not hurt when held). During the 15 years after circumcision, the good news is there have not been any complaints of pain / abnormality either during erection or urination.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Circumcision (circumcision) is a surgical procedure with the aim of removing the prepuce (the tip of the penile skin). This procedure has medical indications and non-medical indications. Medical indications for circumcision include phimosis (the foreskin of the penis cannot be pulled), parafimosis (the foreskin of the penis cannot be returned to its original position after being pulled), and to maintain the hygiene of the penis head area. Meanwhile, the non-medical indications are certain religious recommendations.
The existence of "skin scraps" after circumcision 15 years ago as you complained need to be evaluated through direct physical examination before the condition can be said to be normal or not. This "remaining skin" may be a normal part of the wound healing process for minor circumcision surgery. However, it can also be a remnant of the frenulum that is not completely lifted during the procedure, or scar tissue that appears after a minor surgical wound circumcision, or other abnormal lumps.
Basically, as long as there are no complaints due to the "remaining skin" and the object does not show increasing size and / or change in color / shape, you don't need to worry. However, to be sure, you are advised to check directly with a doctor or urologist so that proper evaluation and treatment may be needed.
