Brief Answer: yes, please go to the emergency Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX. Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum. I would come up with only two possibilities , these includes . 1 Paraphimosis , diagnosis can be confirmed by physical examination by a surgeon.The tight prepuce has been retracted but cannot be returned , and it is constricting the glans which is engorged and oedematous .The diagnosis is apparent at a glance . In my clinical practice this is a very common condition .Not an emergency case .Treatment is very simple and consult a surgeon . One ml normal saline +150 turbidity units of hyaluronidase is injected into each lateral aspect of the swollen ring of prepuce. 15 minute later swelling will reduce . If not then surgeon will do its work. 2 Phimosis ,due to narrowing opening of prepuce .Only circumcision is the treatment . In my opinion consult a surgeon and get his opinion as I mentioned above. Hope this information will be helpful for you. Further any question I will reply in follow up. Good luck. Dr. HET
