Guide: Many people know that the foreskin is too long, but have you ever heard of foreskin adhesion?
According to experts from Suizhou Chufeng Hospital, foreskin adhesion refers to the adhesion between the foreskin and the glans due to certain inflammation and other reasons. The foreskin cannot be freely turned outward, which is usually a sequela of excessive foreskin. There are complete and partial adhesions in the foreskin.
When complete adhesion occurs, the foreskin adheres closely to the glans and can only be separated surgically. When partial adhesions occur, the foreskin adheres loosely to the glans, and the foreskin can be slightly upturned. Use manipulation to turn it outwards, up to the coronal sulcus.
Hazards of foreskin adhesion
Prepuce adhesion is not only a common disease in young children, but also a high incidence rate in adult men. Adhesion of the foreskin is most likely to occur in men with long foreskin and phimosis, which can easily lead to various male urinary system diseases. "Adhesion of the foreskin is the adhesion of the inner skin of the foreskin to the glans and coronal sulcus, and is an important factor in the pathogenesis of balanitis.". Inflammation causes a large amount of exudate, which in turn leads to more severe adhesion. This vicious cycle can easily lead to penis cancer.
What about foreskin adhesion
1、 Treatment with circumcision
Circumcision can be used to treat severe adhesions of the foreskin due to the adhesion of the inner plate of the foreskin to the coronal sulcus and glans. This is the result of repeated attacks of foreskin balanitis, which causes a large amount of inflammatory exudation due to adhesion and inflammation of the foreskin. After absorption, it causes adhesion. What about foreskin adhesion? During surgery, careful separation is necessary, otherwise there may be variations in the appearance of the glans. In some patients, the pigmentation of the glans skin may vary in depth and appear as freckles after separation.
After disinfection, use anesthesia to expand the prepuce opening until it can be turned upside down. After separation, there may be prepuce edema within a few days, which can disappear after soaking with warm saline. If the adhesion of the foreskin has not been significantly relieved, the same method can be used to slightly treat the re adhesion. This non surgical treatment of prepuce adhesions is non bleeding, non infectious, and does not require stitches to be removed, making it easy for children and their families to accept.
