Swelling Of The Penis After Circumcision?
I want to ask, I just did circumcision for 1 week and I didn’t feel any swelling of the penis and there was no feeling of heat around the penis but the swelling was only in the skin of the penis and until now it hasn’t been deflated. Is this kind of situation normal or not? because my friend after circumcision must have experienced swelling of the penis and felt hot in the penis
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Circumcision (circumcision) is done by cutting off the excess foreskin that covers the tip of the penis. This action has many benefits, including maintaining the cleanliness of the penis, reducing the risk of infection of the penis, reducing the potential for sexually transmitted infections and urinary tract infections, reducing the risk of cervical cancer in partners, and so on. Circumcision can also be done to carry out obligations for followers of certain religions.
Nowadays, there are very many circumcision procedures developed, for example using a cauter, or what the general public often calls laser circumcision. Circumcision with this method is carried out using a special tool called a cauter. This tool cuts the skin using high heat and immediately freezes the blood on the skin. In this way, the risk of post-circumcision bleeding can be minimized. Next, the remaining foreskin is sutured together to give the penis a good shape and promote healing.
The absence of swelling, burning sensation, and other signs of inflammation in the penis after laser circumcision does not necessarily indicate an abnormality. This condition can be normal because the immune system of each person is different. Post-circumcision penile care, physical activity undertaken, and various other factors can also influence this.
You should not worry too much. As long as there are no complaints, such as bleeding, erection problems, numbness or numbness, and so on, it is possible that your condition does not require special treatment.
Always keep your penis clean and free from irritation, by taking a shower regularly, rinsing using clean water after urinating, avoiding risky sexual behavior, and always wearing clean and soft pants. If a complaint then arises, as mentioned above, don't hesitate to check with your doctor again.
I hope this helps.
