Paraphimosis- A common problem!
Paraphimosis is a surgical emergency that results from the prepuce (foreskin) being stuck at the corona glandis (rim of the glans). The patient is unable to roll the skin back normally. This condition usually occurs in individuals who have a tight prepuce. The trigger could be forceful prolonged duration masturbation or it could be intercourse in a dry vagina. When this occurs there is usually pain and swelling that results from blockade of lymphatics in that area. As time progresses the swelling becomes worse and chances of the paraphimosis reducing on its own become negligible.
