Klinefelter's Syndrome

Phimosis / Tight Foreskin

A condition that has embarrassed several men and often goes without the adequate medical attention it requires, phimosis or ‘tight foreskin’ refers to the inability to retract the prepuce (foreskin) of the penis over the shaft due to a narrow opening.

Phimosis/Circumcision

Phimosis or circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin, which covers the head of the penis. Usually, this is done for religious or cultural reasons soon after a baby boy is born. Some people also do it for reasons of hygiene or health if the child seems prone to urinary tract infections.

Posterior Urethral Valve (PUV)
