Dr. Reed, Is my penile scrotal web related to a circumcision I had a few years ago? Milton
Dear Milton, The junction between the underside of the penis and scrotum is a transitional zone. This is to say I see penile scrotal webs in men who have not been circumcised.
Naturally if requested to do a circumcision a congenial penile scrotal web should not be exaggerated. Usually before an adult circumcision the patient is carefully examined. There should be agreement as to how much skin is to be removed. If I see the scrotum is being lifted, I will not make matters worse.
While I do not favor simulations removal of a penile scrotal web and primary adult circumcision, I may do both simultaneously if a circumcision revision is being done.
