Today's questions involve two very specific, yet very common conditions affecting men of all ages.
Question (concern): " (Help) I have phimosis!"
Phimosis is a condition characterized by a tight foreskin that is difficult to pull back, making urination and sexual intercourse troublesome or painful (find out more here: https://www.healthline.com/health/mens-health/phimosis). Dr. Mistry discusses various causes of phimosis as well as treatments which differ based on age and severity. He and Dr. Jacomides also share about sex-life and performance after receiving treatment for this condition.
Question 2: " Is there any new (non-surgical) treatment for Peyronie's disease? I tried Xiaflex but had no success."
Xiaflex is a medication used to treat Peyronie's disease, a condition characterized by abnormal curvature of the penis. This can be caused by trauma to the penis; however, this is not always the case. Xiaflex is derived from enzymes that target and help to break down the scar tissue that builds up in Peyronie's disease.
For patients that do not respond to treatment with medication, surgery is a great option. Our doctors today discuss the surgical treatment of Peyronie's disease and shine some light on this important topic.
