Penile adhesions | DIAGNOSTICS

A penile adhesion is an abnormal bridge of scar tissue that is located between the head of the penis (the glans) and the inside of the foreskin. Also known as a foreskin adhesion, preputial adhesion or penile skin bridge, this condition can develop in both circumcised and uncircumcised men. However, it most commonly affects young children following a circumcision.

The condition isn’t serious, but it can cause pain and discomfort, especially during sex.
