  • Phimosis (Child, Male) [English] Public

    The penis is covered by a ring of tissue called the foreskin. The foreskin is loose. It slides over the penis, covering and uncovering the head of the penis (glans). It can also cover and uncover the opening of the penis (meatus). However, if the foreskin is too tight, it is unable to move. When this happens, the foreskin can close over the glans, causing a condition called phimosis. As a result, a tight ring of scar tissue forms over the head of the penis (glans), which prevents the foreskin from retracting from the glans. (English)
