Phimosis (Child, Male) [English] Permalink 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)

Orchidopexy: Surgery for Undescended Testicles (Child, Male) [English] Permalink Public

Normally before a baby boy is born, the testicles move into the scrotum (the sac that holds the testicles). Sometimes, though, one or both testicles stay in the body cavity instead of moving into the scrotum. This is called undescended testicles​ or cryptorchidism, which means "hidden testicle." An orchidopexy is an operation to lower the testicles into the scrotum. (English)

Foreskin Care in Children [English] Permalink Public

The penis is attached to a sheath of skin called the foreskin. As a boy gets older, the foreskin loosens and he is able to pull back (retract) the foreskin. As a boy becomes more aware of his body, he will most likely discover how to retract his own foreskin. The majority of boys at age 16 will have foreskin they can fully retract. Audio available.

Orchidopexy: Surgery for Undescended Testicles (Child, Male) [Chinese - Traditional] Permalink Public

Normally before a baby boy is born, the testicles move into the scrotum (the sac that holds the testicles). Sometimes, though, one or both testicles stay in the body cavity instead of moving into the scrotum. This is called undescended testicles​ or cryptorchidism, which means "hidden testicle." The eustachian (say: you-STAY-shun) tube connects the middle ear to the back of the throat, and helps vent and drain the middle ear. An ear infection happens when mucus or swollen tissues from a cold block the eustachian tube. When the tube is blocked, the middle ear is not ventilated well and the air pressure changes can cause pain. This is much like the ear pain that happens on take-off or landing in an airplane. Sometimes the blockage does not let the normal ear fluid drain properly. This fluid can become infected and build up in the middle ear. This puts pressure on the eardrum and makes it bulge, which causes pain. Audio available. (Chinese - Traditional)
