Hi... This can happen over a period of time following masturbation. However they will not cause any problems in sexual life... You need worry on that.  There are options of surgical correction, but you do not need one... Just take precautionary measures to prevent infection by good personal hygeine.. That al what is required....

Hello Doctor. I am 21 years old. I cannot retract my foreskin completely because there is a small joint with the penis. Because of this incomplete retraction I think I have a little pain during intercourse whenever I try to push it fully inside. There are no issues related to urination. Is this phimosis, and if yes what should I do ? Is circumcision the only option ?
