Thanks for your query.Your foreskin has turned white which has extended up to coronal sulcus of glans.This is sclerosing condition called as Balanitis Xerotica Obliterance It is a progressive disease and if neglected may involve urethra too.So go ahead and get the circumcision done as advised by your Dr.
