    Sometimes it’s just medically the right thing to do.

    Tight foreskin, called phimosis, is a problem. If your foreskin doesn’t retract easily when you are erect, you have it. Mild cases can be ignored, but if retracting the foreskin from your fully covered glans while erect causes any pain, and especially if there is risk of tearing, circumcision is absolutely medically justified.

    Chronic infections under the foreskin (balanitis) can also warrant a circumcision; anaerobic bacteria simply don’t grow on a circumcised man. If antibiotic and steroid creams have become a regular part of your life, circumcision is a great alternative to a glans covered in scar tissue.

    I definitely need to have circumcision revision done to my penis!! I want my self-circumcised penis to LOOK like a circumcised penis and not a vision from the most horrible nightmare I ever had!

    I finally made the decision to get circumcised for recurrent balanitis/balanoposthitis. I’m early 50s, and have had periodic bouts since I was about 18. For many years, they were just a periodic irritation that would resolve on their own in a week or two. Over the last few years though, they have lasted longer and been a bit more severe. I made the decision to jump off the merry-go-round a couple of months ago, and my surgery is scheduled for February of this year.
