Paraphimosis: When Foreskin stuck behind head of penis.

Men with often pull back their foreskins for many different reasons. Sometimes it is to clean the head of the penis. Some men like to pull their foreskin back when they urinate. Frequently, during sex or masturbation, the foreskin is also naturally pulled back to expose the head of the penis.

In most cases, the foreskin goes back to its natural position to cover the head of the penis. When the foreskin gets stuck behind the head of the penis, it can cause severe problems like swelling and pain. This is called Paraphimosis.

Paraphimosis occurs when the foreskin is retracted behind the crown (corona) of the penis and can’t be returned to the unretracted position.

This can cause entrapment of the penis, eventually impairing the drainage of blood.

If your foreskin is stuck behind the head of the penis, please see a doctor as soon as you can. It is an emergency!

Paraphimosis is a urological emergency.

Paraphimosis can happen due to :

1.) Masturbation

2.) Vigorous sexual activity

3.) Penile piercing

4.) Urinary catheterisation ( a tube inserted into the bladder)

5.) Or any other reason that the foreskin is pulled back to expose the head of the penis

If you are suffering from paraphimosis, see a doctor as soon as you can.

ASAP!

Paraphimosis Diagnosis and Treatment

A careful physical exam by your doctor normally gives enough information to make a diagnosis.

The vast majority of paraphimosis can be easily treated in a clinic by an experienced doctor. Our Doctor have treated multiple cases of paraphimosis in our clinics.

A skilled doctor will be able to reduce the swelling and pull the foreskin back to its natural position. Very often, the only anaesthesia needed is a bit of ice on the foreskin to numb it.

Once the foreskin is put back in its original position covering the head of the penis, everything goes back to normal. Any swelling or pain fades extremely quickly.

If the problem keeps recurring, the patient should consider undergoing a circumcision to prevent the problem from coming back.

The reason why paraphimosis is an emergency is-if there is a failure to reduce the paraphimosis will result in necrosis
(death of tissue) of the glans!
