Do I have to undergo circumcision and does this procedure affect me ?

I have a penis that is less than 1/2 an inch when flaccid and when errect it goes to 4 and 1/2 inch size. with this size during errection i can have intercourse. now the problem is that the fore skin is really tight during errection and the frenulum is tight too and this prevents the movement of the skin and so there is no sensation during intercourse and i cannot ejaculate. but in the normal flacid state the foreskin is really loose and there is a lot of extra skin in the flacid state and this might be due to small penis size . do i have to undergo circumcision and does this procedure affect me becose of small size of penis.?

For ur complaints, circumcision shall be a good operation to opt for. consult a surgeon for the same. Post procedure, it will not affect the penis size.

Most probably you have some degree of tightness of foreskin when penis is in erect stage and U R most likely to benefit by a circumcision operation. The size of penis would remain same but may APPEAR smaller bereft of the loose forskin. U need to see a surgeon for this. Sexologist for any other sex problem.

I m 20 years old and I m considering having a circumcision. My biggest fear of this procedure is that I will lose all nerve endings and not be able to reach orgasm. I really want to have this done but I need some information on how it will affect me in the long run. Any advice?

I am 55 years old and never had this problem until a year ago. I have seen 2 Urologist and they both say I do not see anything wrong I told them that my penis skin on shaft tears when getting and erection and sometimes it feels like it is over filling with blood. Like you blow up a balloon to normal then overfull it and it tears and takes about 3 days to stop hurting. I also notice that sometimes I will get this ring of tight skin that forms like a collar around the shaft near the rim of the penis and it hurts extremely to try to roll the skin down and most of the time it will not move but the pain is intense. At one time it would have red bumps on the rim on one side and felt like the erection was crooked and leaning to one side and over hard if that is possible. My regular doctor increased my blood pressure Medicine to see if lower my blood pressure would help. Not a chance. I can not find out what is causing the problem. It only does it when and erection occurs. I am circumcised but it also feels like after and erection is achieved there is no skin movement, for example if you try to masturbate and pull the skin back and forth there is none or very little movement and the rim gets very tight and hurts but the tearing is near the base and midway up the shaft. Someone please help because even when having a dream and getting and erection while I sleep I pay for that for 3 days of pure pain.

Starts with irritation at the penis foreskin for about 3-4days then 3 or 4 rush-like swellings (3-mm wide about 3mm apart) show in a group (in a line). After a about 2 days they become woulds so painful lasting over one week. I also have a growth 2mm thick about 4mm tall at the penis start skin.

Seen Doctors:
Doctor 1 - Three Months ago:
Thinks it is a bacterial infection and treated with antibacterials, Symtoms disappeared. By then then the growth 2mm thick about 4mm tall at the penis start skin was not there but other symptoms described were there.

Doctor 2: 3 weeks ago:
Thinks I have genital ulcers with herpes + Warts and gave me viral treatment. The wounds healed but I fealing the symptoms for irritation at the penis foreskin starting again (6days now). The penis and area around it now also itches.

My partner was also treated in both cases.

What should I do next?

My husband had a circumcision (he's 42) after phimosis all his life. It's been 8 months, and his glans are still too painful and sensitive to touch. He's says it feels like a toothache. I wonder if perhaps he had a low grade yeast infection under the foreskin for years going unnoticed. I read untreated yeast can grow rhizomes, and become more in the mold category, going under the top layer of skin in a woman's vagina, and having nearly no symptoms, other than vulva pain similar to what my husband is now describing. He has tried all pain meds for it, including ones for nerve pain. Suggestions on what this might be, other possibilities.... would be great.

Hi there Dr. Kakkar, I have asked you a question before about pumps on my penis. I went to see a local doctor and he confirmed your diagnosis and prescribed a cream which took care of the bumps within 10 days. Thanks you very much for that....
