What is Phimosis?

Description of the disease

Phimosis is a condition in which the foreskin of the penis cannot be fully retracted due to a tight prepuce. Normally, in young children, the foreskin is not fully retractable, but as they grow older, this process should occur naturally.


  • Physiological phimosis (normal in children)
  • Pathological phimosis (in adults, caused by various reasons)


The main symptom of phimosis is the inability to fully retract the head of the penis.


The causes of physiological phimosis in children are related to the incomplete formation of the prepuce and the foreskin of the penis. Pathological phimosis can be caused by inflammation, scarring, injury, or even malignancies.


The diagnosis of phimosis is made based on a doctor's examination. If necessary, additional diagnostic tests such as ultrasound or urological tests may be performed.


Treatment of phimosis can be conservative or surgical. Conservative methods include the use of ointments and exercises to stretch the prepuce. In case of ineffective conservative treatment, surgical intervention may be required.


Preventing phimosis includes hygiene procedures, regular retraction of the foreskin in children, and timely consultation with a doctor at the first signs of potential problems.


For the diagnosis and treatment of phimosis, it is necessary to consult a urologist, and if necessary, a surgeon.
