Phimosis refers to those with narrow foreskin mouth and difficult to turn over foreskin. The problem of phimosis is always in the minds of men, and over and over again, so why do men have phimosis? How to deal with phimosis in men?
Why do men have phimosis? What harm is it
Why do men have phimosis?
Phimosis refers to those with narrow foreskin mouth and difficult to turn over foreskin.
Phimosis is one of the common diseases in the urological center, and it is also a major problem for men. In childhood, everyone was in a phimosis state, and the glans was completely covered by foreskin. At puberty, when the penis is erect, the foreskin will be pulled down and the glans will be exposed. The prepuce mouth of some children is very small, so that the prepuce cannot shrink, which hinders the development of the penis head and even the whole penis. The external orifice of the urethra is often small, and sometimes the preputial orifice is small as a pinhole, so that it is difficult to urinate.
Children with phimosis often prick the heart mucosa due to the accumulation of secretion under the foreskin, which can cause prepuceitis of the penis head. Acquired phimosis is mostly secondary to prepuceitis of penis and injury of prepuce and penis head. There is scar contracture at the prepuce mouth, which loses the elasticity and expansion ability of the skin. The prepuce cannot shrink upward and is often accompanied by urethral stricture. This kind of phimosis will not heal itself. Most phimosis are congenital. Some of them are caused by repeated infection on the basis of long foreskin, resulting in adhesion that cannot be turned up.
1. Acquired phimosis:
Acquired phimosis is mostly secondary to prepuceitis of penis and injury of prepuce and penis head. There is scar contracture at the prepuce mouth, and the elasticity and expansion ability of the skin are lost. The prepuce of the patient cannot shrink upward, and there will be urethral stricture. This kind of phimosis will not heal itself.
2. Congenital phimosis:
Congenital phimosis can be seen in every normal male newborn and infant. When a child is born, there is adhesion between the foreskin and the penis (glans). At the age of 3 to 4 years, due to the growth of the penis and glans, the penis erects, and most of the foreskin of the child can shrink upward by itself, and the outer foreskin can reveal the glans, but some of the foreskin mouth of the child is very small, so that the foreskin cannot shrink, which hinders the development of the glans and even the whole penis.
What harm does phimosis do to men?
If phimosis cannot be treated in time, it will have a great impact on men's sexual life, and the phimosis is much more harmful to people's health than the long foreskin.
Some serious phimosis, the foreskin mouth is narrow as a pinhole, the foreskin bulges like a ball when urinating, and the urination is not smooth. Because of phimosis and urethral stricture, the bladder sphincter constricts during urination, and the internal pressure of the bladder also exceeds the pressure that the bladder Mao's sheath can bear before or at the same time overcoming the urethral resistance. The urine flows back along the ureter, and the ureter and pelvis expand, causing bacterial infection of the upper urinary tract, scar formation, and leading to secondary reflux kidney disease and even renal function damage.
1. It hinders penis development and affects the harmony of sexual life:
The phimosis will affect the growth and development of the penis. In adolescence, because the penis head is firmly wrapped by the foreskin and cannot be stimulated by the outside world, the development of the penis head is greatly constrained, resulting in a significantly smaller circumference of the crown of the penis head after the development of sexual organs, which affects sexual pleasure. Adults will affect their normal sexual life due to long foreskin or phimosis. Especially for men with too small foreskin diameter, the foreskin can not be recovered, and the foreskin is firmly stuck in the coronary groove, forming embedded phimosis, which is not very painful. In severe cases, the glans will have edema due to poor blood flow, and even glans necrosis may occur.
2. Inflammation of penis:
There are abundant sebaceous glands in the foreskin, which can secrete a large amount of sebum. When the phimosis or foreskin is too long, the secretion of sebaceous glands in the foreskin can not be discharged, and the sediment in sebum and urine can form a cheese-like and smelly "foreskin scale". The foreskin scale is suitable for bacterial growth, so it can cause inflammation of the penis and foreskin. Bacteria can also cause urinary tract infection through the urethra. Inflammation at the urethral orifice can cause the urethral orifice to be narrow after healing, resulting in difficulty in urination.
3. Risk of pathological changes:
Prolonged prepuce and phimosis may induce penile lesions. The phimosis and foreskin are too long, which not only affect your health. If you live with your wife, you will also bring the foreskin dirt into the vagina, stimulate the uterus, and induce cervical lesions.
4. Damage to kidney function:
Because of penis inflammation, it can cause urethral orifice or anterior urethral stricture, causing difficulty in urination. If urination is difficult for a long time, the function of the kidney will be damaged.
What about phimosis in men?
The pseudophimosis can be pulled out by doctors, but no matter how the real phimosis is pulled out by hand, the glans can not appear, which of course requires surgery. Because it will affect the generation of pleasure if the glans can not come out. Moreover, it is easy to accumulate dirt and infect bacteria in the foreskin. Go to a regular hospital for treatment as soon as possible
