Hi and thanks for the query.

This is scar tissue causing fibrosis and stricture formation around the head of the penis. This started after the trauma and resulting in an infection called balanitis, which is a bacterial infection of the foreskin, since, the infection caused raw surface - the healing resulted in a scar. The scar is circumferential and is thus constricting the head of the penis.

You need to have this assessed by a Urologist. Scar release, circumcision and repair is the surgical intervention you need. The urologist may prefer to catheterize the urethra for 2-3 days as well. The procedure can both be done as a day case and with an admission for a day. It can be done under general as well as spinal anesthesia.

Hope this helps.
