Phimosis is an abnormality of the skin of the penis (foreskin) that alters the mechanics of the organ. Therefore, it prevents the complete retraction of the foreskin, leaving the glans exposed.

Contrary to what many people think, it is not an exclusive pathology that occurs during childhood, it can occur at any age and if it is not solved it can lead to difficulty in erection and discomfort during sexual intercourse. Left untreated, over the years it can produce obstructive renal failure by not allowing the bladder to empty or trigger penile cancer.

The solution is to operate surgically performing the circumcision.
