Dr. P. Jyoti :

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this is an area of fibrosis that developed on the scar of the split

Dr. P. Jyoti :

is this still painful when squeezed?

Customer:

yes always had tight foreskin lump shows up even more when I pull skin back

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ok i understand

Dr. P. Jyoti :

what is your age?

Customer:

44

Dr. P. Jyoti :

ok

Dr. P. Jyoti :

there are two things that you can do

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the first is to wait for 6 months from the time of tear, that is, frm christmas or till around June

Dr. P. Jyoti :

usually such post-tear lumps will resolve in 6 months

Dr. P. Jyoti :

so hopefully the lump will be gone by then

Dr. P. Jyoti :

meanwhile you will need to massage gently but firmly daily with a cream such as vaseline

Dr. P. Jyoti :

massage should be soft enough not to cause mucosal abrasion

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but firm pressure should be there

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this will help the lump to resolve

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you will need to wait till 6 months for this

Dr. P. Jyoti :

sometimes upto 8 months

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the second option and which I would recommend is go for circumcision directly

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the fact that you had a foreskin tear and that you have always had a tight foreskin, and now this lump, all this suggests that you need circumcision

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you should go for this directly

Dr. P. Jyoti :

it will help you get rid of the problem once and for all

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the fact that you had a tear suggests that your foreskin is indeed too tight

Dr. P. Jyoti :

there is no need for you to suffer from this

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the second option is the one I would personally recommend

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but of course it is really upto you to make that decision

Dr. P. Jyoti :

take care

Dr. P. Jyoti :
