Dermatologist 's  Response

Tear in frenulum is commonly occuring due to intercourse or masturbation.

Mostly it occurs in person having very short frenulun.

If you have large cut ,the you go for stitching.

If there is short cut, stitch is not needed.

Good ducision will be taken by your doctor.

If tear recurs, Phrenectomy would be advised... removal of frenulum.

Do not worry.

I hope you got my answer.
