Phimosis is a condition in which there is congenital or accidental of the foreskin of the penis ring narrow, which makes it impossible to retract to show the glans. It is common in children and can sometimes be caused by forced retraction of the foreskin at an early age. It can also be caused by an infection or scars that form after injury. Phimosis can be corrected by a simple surgical procedure called circumcision, which involves removing excess skin around the glans (bridle), permanently leaving it exposed. Instead, parafimosis is unable to return the foreskin over the glans. Usually causes pain and some swelling, and usually occurs in children or the elderly who have not been circumcised.
