  • 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)

  • Hypospadias - Multi-Record Landing Page (Child, Male) [English] Public

    Hypospadias is a condition affecting the penis. Sometimes when boys are born, the opening of the penis (meatus) is not at the tip. Instead, it is lower on the head of the penis or along the shaft of the penis. In more rare cases, the opening is on the scrotum or at the perineum. The perineum is the area between the scrotum and the anus. Boys born with hypospadias [say: hi-po-SPADE-ee-as] may also have some of their foreskin missing. They may also have a curved penis called a chordee. Hypospadias is more common than people imagine. It is just that people tend not to speak about it. (English)
