What is Paraphimosis?

Description of the condition

Paraphimosis is a condition in which a tight foreskin becomes trapped behind the head of the penis and cannot be pulled back over it. It is a serious condition that requires medical intervention.


  • Fixed paraphimosis
  • Movable paraphimosis


  • Pain and swelling of the penis
  • Inability to retract the foreskin


Paraphimosis usually occurs as a result of injury or improper manipulation of the penis foreskin.


The diagnosis is based on a physical examination by a doctor and the clinical symptoms.


Treatment involves manipulation to return the foreskin to its original position and subsequent use of a compression bandage. In some cases, surgical intervention may be necessary.


Avoiding injury to the penis, maintaining proper hygiene, and handling the foreskin correctly can help prevent paraphimosis.


A urologist should be consulted for the diagnosis and treatment of paraphimosis.
