Ask the experts... phimosis


Phimosis is nearly universal at birth, with most young boys experiencing a tight foreskin. Generally, this loosens overtime (and the foreskin can be pulled back) but if it is persistent phimosis causes pain, sexual dysfunction and even penile cancer. Some men can have phimosis throughout their life but it may also develop later in life, after puberty. 

To help our members with the condition, we partnered with The Urology Foundation and Mr Vaibhav Modgil to answer loads of phimosis questions. If you missed the clinic that ran earlier this year, not to worry, here is Dr Modgil’s best advice.
