Dear Sandeepflash,
Welcome to HCM.
FORE SKIN OF PENIS should move freely over the glans penis. Otherwise
1. you will not able to clean your penis properly
2. It will lead to infections.
3.Your sexual performance will not be very satisfactory and you may likely to have painful coitus.
You and your partners are prone to develop genital cancers in future.
4. You may likely to go for a condition called as para-phiomsis, Swelling of glans penis with difficulty to put forth your fore skin back.
5 you may likely to have preputial and frenal tears.
So consult your Surgeon and get removed your fore skin as early as possible if indicated.
Good luck to you.
