Extensive radiation has a potential to cause excessive scarring and fibrosis of the skin around the area that is treated, hence new treatment is very focused against the cancer area.

If you do not have any discomfort during erection or masturbation or intercourse then you should just leave it without any therapy.

If you have problem with the foreskin while erection or intercourse a small surgical incision by the surgeon can release and make the skin freely movable over the head of the penis. It is a 5 minute procedure done in the doctor's office. I think you should get that done.

Let me know if you require any further assistance. You can close the discussion and rate my answer.
