Quick reference medical handouts used by Pediatric offices


My son was circumcised and is now 10 months old. He has some skin stuck to his penis which the doctor says is an adhesion. My doctor said to leave it alone and it will go away as he gets older. A friend of mine had the same problem with her little baby boy and the doctor cut the adhesion. What should I do?
    
We would recommend following your doctor's opinion. Penile adhesions occur frequently after circumcision. Some physicians advocate manual lysis of the adhesions. This procedure can be painful and traumatic. Penile adhesions are normal in uncircumcised boys and normally resolve without treatment.

A recent study in the Journal of Urology followed 254 circumcised boys to see what happened to their penile adhesions. Only seven patients had been treated for adhesions. Despite this, the prevalence of adhesions decreased dramatically with age to:

71% of boys age ‹12 months
28% of boys ages 1-5 years old
8% of boys ages 5-9
2% ages 9-18

We agree with the conclusions of this study. Penile adhesions after circumcision normally resolve without treatment.
