Yes, you have read correctly, this is known as phimosis
. This condition is exclusively caused by a tight foreskin and can complicate matters by causing hygiene problems. This is best treated with a simple operation done under local anesthesia
(which means that you need not go to sleep during the procedure) known as circumcision
. This removes the major part of the foreskin while keeping a remnant in place so that you have no problems in retracting that.
