Hello, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!

Circumcision is the procedure that cuts some or all of the foreskin (ie., prepuce) from the penis. The frenulum may also be cut away at the same time, in a procedure called a frenectomy. The word "circumcision" comes from Latin "circum" (meaning "around") and "caedere" (meaning "to cut"). In the "German cut," the top and both sides of skin are cut off. but underneath there’s excess skin. This is likely to remain as such. It will not cause any health problems.
Wishing you best of health

My 6 year old son was circumcised 7 days ago. He had a lot of swelling under the glans that is slowly subsiding. It looks like a small area of skin is attached to the glan in the middle over the swelling. I am concerned if this is okay or if the shin reattached.

On the 25 of February I had a circumcision done and everything went well to me (so far.) I want to say the second night I had 3 erections that were painful! The next 2 days I noticed that the left side of my penis was more bulged than the right and it s really slightly more painful than the right. Yesterday March 2 I went to go see my urologist in concern about what s happening. He basically man handled my penis and said it s fine. Gave me some more pain relievers and some antibiotics. One thing I do notice is that I get pulsing pain and slow seepage of blood. Another thing is the skin moves a little in between the stitches with minor pain. Is this gonna heal properly? Also if I have another erection well that make the skin split? Yes I m probably being a hypochondriac but I just want to prevent issues in the future for myself.

I've just had a lower labial frenectomy, due to gum recession. I'm concerned because I had two instead of one, under each incisor. I have searched the internet and can't find anyone else with this also asked various friends who all seem to have just one.
Does this mean anything, as all i'm getting in search results in 'human morphology'? :/

Hello specialists. I am Jay. I m 19 years old now. Turning 20 next year. I have a space in between my teeth . Around 3.3mm wide. I bought teeth effect bands from WWW.WWWW.WW For 5 nights of wearing the bands, I found out that my teeth gap is getting smaller. My concern now is that after using Orthofill and my teeth gap is totally closed, is their a possibility that it will reopen? And, is there something that I have to do so that my teeth gap will be close permanently?
