Foreskin - Definition


Definition

The foreskin is the fold of skin covering the glans penis at the very end of the shaft. At birth, and in very young children, the foreskin can be observed partially or wholly sticking to the penis, which can cause difficulties in retraction, this is referred to as non-retractability in childhood. In these cases, the foreskin should not be forced to retract, and it usually resolves itself in the first few years of life. Nevertheless, retraction can be difficult or even impossible in certain children, despite their growth, and the penis can not always be exposed. This is a case of phimosis, and can require partial or total ablation of the foreskin by means of surgery, which is called posthectomy or, more commonly, circumcision.
