Q.

6 year old with tight foreskin

HI, my son is 6 yrs old, he has a tight forskin. I took him to a Urologist and he did a phismos release (not sure of the correct spelling), but now the foreskin seems to be stuck on the head about half way back. Should I take him back for a checkup or will it sort itself out as he gets older. He pulls the foreskin back as far as it goes everynight in the bath to clean it.

Thanks

Your son does not need to pull the foreskin back when bathing.However his foreskin does appear to be stuck down to the head of the penis. You need to ask the urologist to see your son again.
