Dear Patient,
If you foreskin is tight and you are facing difficulties in retracting it during erection then its better you get it circumcised. (or you can go for a slit procedure) Its a minor procedure with no complication if done by trained consultant.

I think you should go for it if there is tight foreskin in order to avoid any complications later in life . You can contact a General Surgeon or Urologist for this purpose.

Hope this helps
Feel free to ask followups
Thank you

Patient replied :

Thanks doctor for your Reply... I Would like to ask some doubts.... Exactly as you said i cant pull back my fore skin during erection.. If you need to have a clear idea.. shall i add Picture of the problem...?
1. What is Slit Procedure? Will the Fore Skin will be removed ?
2. Can i get Circumcised at the this age of 26..?
3. Is there any problem if i get circumcised at this age of 26 since all my tissues will be stronger and grown up...??

Dear patient,
Slit procedure is where a slit is made on the forskin, the foreskin is not removed. I would not advise slit procedure for you.
There is no problem in getting circumcised at any age. Its a safe procedure with minimal complication. Slit operation is no good for you.
