Concealed penis should be pulled out as early as possible

Concealed penis should be pulled out as early as possible The penis of the child is smallish, which can be divided into true and false group. And the true penis smallish disease have also true, false and malformation three groups. The concealed penis is the most common case among the penis short group.

Concealed penis is one of the most common congenital abnormalities and malformations, which is different from long foreskin or phimosis in children. As you all know, when the baby boy is born, the foreskin of the penis is wrapped around the glans of the penis. By the age of 3-4, the foreskin of most children can be turned over and the glans of the penis is exposed. If this time, the foreskin cannot turn down or the foreskin port is very small, it is called redundant prepuce or phimosis. The body of the penis is concealed in the body and protrudes only with a pointed small foreskin outside. If the penis is squeezed inwards by hand, the penis will show up, but the penis is retracted as soon as the hand is released.

So some people call it buried penis. In spite of concealed penis and prepuce similar, but they are two completely different diseases, this is because the outer layer of skin concealed penis is not too long, but too short, the penis body is not small but normal. There are three causes shown as below. First, the penile skin develops poorly and is too short; secondly, the foreskin cavity is too small; third, the penile skin does not contain the corpus cavernosum, resulting in the absence of support and retraction of the corpus cavernosum.

If does not have an operation of the concealed penis, the penis cannot extend out normally, then the phallic body development can be restricted. Therefore, the concealed penis must be corrected treated at a certain age (3-5 years).

It is totally different treatment methods between the concealed penis and prepuce. For the prepuce patients, the circumcision should be applied to excised the long wrapping foreskin, and treatment methods of concealed penis foreskin must be expanded and prolonged penile skin surgery, and also need to pull out the penis body from the belly and be good fixed, to make the penis to restore normal physiological anatomy, so as to achieve the purpose of penis development.

However, if the concealed penis prepuce misdiagnosed as prepuce to perform circumcision, the results will lead to a shortage of penile skin already become scarcer, and after the penis once lost the skin adhesion and protection, penis growth will be more restrained.

Therefore, with short penis in children, parents must take him to a pediatric surgery hospital visits, physician diagnosed pediatric surgery, to check, in order to select the correct method of operation, to avoid misdiagnosis.
