Talking about prepuce and phimosis
Statistical analysis of clinical data shows that:
The occurrence of penis cancer is closely related to phimosis or redundant prepuce.
Jewish male newborns were circumcised on the 8th day after birth, and almost no penile cancer occurred; Islam, boys are also circumcised within the age of 4 to 10 years, and the incidence of penis cancer is also very low. Therefore, penis cancer can be regarded as a late complication of phimosis or redundant prepuce, and it is also a preventable tumor.
According to modern scientific research, people with phimosis or long foreskin will form scale accumulation in the inner cavity of foreskin, and the mucosa on the surface of foreskin and penis head will often become inflamed, which will eventually induce penile cancer after long-term stimulation.
So, what is foreskin too long?
Too long prepuce refers to the prepuce covering the urethral orifice, but can turn up to expose the urethral orifice and penis head, but often accompanied by phimosis.
Pseudoprepuce overgrowth 01
It shows that the glans can not be completely exposed at ordinary times, but it can be completely exposed and erect after the penis erection, and the foreskin will not cause compression, pain, discomfort, etc. to the penis.
True prepuce is too long 02
It shows that the glans cannot be completely exposed after the penis is erect.
How about phimosis?
The phimosis refers to the narrow prepuce mouth or the adhesion between the prepuce and the penis head, so that the prepuce cannot turn up, and the urethral orifice and the penis head cannot be exposed.
It is characterized by narrow and pinhole-like prepuce mouth, which can cause different degrees of dysuria, slow and small urine flow, and swelling prepuce during urination.
Genuine phimosis 02
It shows that the foreskin is too tight and has no flexibility, and the foreskin can not shrink and expose the glans in any way.
What's the harm of too long foreskin
Induce preputitis of penis
Because of the long-term accumulation of dirt and foreskin dirt under the foreskin, it is easy for bacteria to multiply and grow, causing inflammation, swelling and pain.
Induce male premature ejaculation
Patients with long foreskin, because the glans is wrapped by foreskin for a long time, are very likely to cause the glans to be too sensitive, resulting in premature ejaculation.
Affect urination function
The opening of the foreskin is narrow and small like a pinhole. When urinating, the urine cannot be discharged smoothly, and the foreskin will bulge like a small ball, which is easy to cause urinary tract infection repeatedly.
Prone to incarceration
The foreskin was barely turned up but not restored in time, resulting in swelling of the penis head and distal foreskin. Over time, the foreskin and penis head would be ischemic and necrotic.
Is it necessary to do prepuce surgery if the foreskin is too long?
Not all men should be circumcised. People of some regions or races, for some reasons, such as religion or adult ceremony, will allow all men to undergo circumcision. But from a purely medical point of view,
Circumcision is required for:
2. After the reduction of incarcerated phimosis, the inflammatory edema has subsided and the infection has been controlled.
3. The foreskin is too long and the foreskin mouth is small. Although it can be overturned, it is easy to cause incarcerated phimosis.
4. The foreskin is too long, and the foreskin penis inflammation occurs repeatedly, but the acute infection has been controlled.
5. It has an impact on sexual life and is prone to premature ejaculation.
6. There are symptoms of prepuce balanitis.
7. Early penile cancer, small lesions are limited to foreskin, no deep invasion, no lymph node metastasis.
