Linkage Of Retracting The Foreskin With Circumcision?
Good evening, I have a question. I was not circumcised but I always let the foreskin / foreskin be pulled back (open). Does this have the same effect as a circumcised person? in terms of health, of course. thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Circumcision (sirsumsisi) is done by cutting the excess foreskin and sewing it on the side of the penis. In this way, the potential for infection in the penis which is often caused by the accumulation of dead cells, residual urine, and also pathogenic microorganisms between the foreskin and the shaft and glans of the penis can be minimized. In addition, circumcision also has various other benefits, such as:
Preventing urinary tract infections Reducing the risk of penile cancer Reducing the risk of cervical cancer in partners As for your habit of pulling the foreskin of the penis open to the glans penis can make it easier for you to clean the dirt around the penis. However, you also need to know that this action can increase your risk of experiencing paraphimosis, which is the foreskin that is very tightly pulled over the penis and is difficult to return to its original position. This condition can cause your penis to feel painful, swollen, and also reddish. In more severe cases, the obstruction of blood flow to and from the penis can cause tissue death that makes the penis turn bluish, even forming gangrene (dead tissue). This condition is one of the medical emergencies that needs to be treated quickly and precisely.
Therefore, we do not recommend that you get used to doing these actions. Consult directly with a urological surgeon regarding the best treatment for maintaining penis health.
Hope it helps ..
