Nine months after circumcision

Hello. I ve been circumcised about 9 months now. My doctor says that operation gone very well but my shaft seems all time swollen. Also under the shaft as you can see in the photo it is a tight thickened ring that i think it develops over time. When i m hard my penis looks normal by the way. Whats your opinion about these two facts ?

I’m no expert but I think that’s keloid

You appear to have significant oedema of your inner foreskin, even at this late date. I don't know if anything can be done to reduce the oedema.

Circumcision has many drawbacks. You have found one of them.

I suggest that you consult a physician who can examine you and see what is going on.

As long as it doesn't bother you, I think you're fine. Unique in fact, which is a very good thing. Many women, and men too, particularly enjoy a penis that has 'special' features. For instance, I know a guy who has a skin bridge. He was circumcised as a baby, and a portion of the skin of his shaft stuck to the side of his glans as it healed, and has been that way ever since, He has two girlfriends, and being bisexual, plays with guys too. No one minds, and most find it oddly attractive. - Jeremy, Medibation.com

No; odema-swelling is not what that is.

Your operation has been completely healed for it to be 9 months later. The problem is you must have had a rough-time going thru the healing process, or your soft-tissues were horribly agitated and irritated, because you "definately" have an overscarring of the inner foreskin tissue. That can only be surgically cutoff. But that would be highly expensive because you will need an expert corrective-surgery urologist/dermatologist! It's one thing to have the shaft's skin and inner foreskin cut and stitched together. But it's a whole nother monster to cut into the inner foreskin, reduction cut some off, and then reattach the two seperate pieces of inner foreskin to themselves. Skin glue may work there better than stitches. I would hate to go thru the stitching phase all over again on the penis, now knowing how it feels when erections are almost trying to tear them apart all day, everyday😖😖😖

But yes, mnt1997 is correct, Google search: "keloid overscarring". Some people's bodies just overdo its scar tissue recovery. It normally happens within the melanated (darker complexion) ethnic groups. Like: Southeast Asia, the Pacific Islanders, Central and South America, Africa, and India.

Can you make a new post with a picture of it erected? Show us how you say it looks normal during then

Do you still have any pics from your earlier stages of healing. Please upload as many as possible and describe the dates or weeks of the stage. I want to see exactly when did things go wrong. Also, make sure you go see your doctor!!!!

No because it has stabilized its health at this stage, and with this aesthetic look. Does having sex hurt you? If not, I can't think of any other functions of the penis that would. Urinating is very simple, and walking with underwear and pants is simple too, so is showering. I just wouldn't want that puff of tissue.

The length is about 16.5 cm when erected. My penis expands very much when its erected. Thats why maybe happens this to my foreskin.

I wore my old cricket box quite a lot when healing. Mine became septic and took 20 we

16.5 cm is equivalent to 6.5 inches??? But that pic looks like 10 inches or so..lol (no homo)
