Swelling Under Son's Foreskin
My younger son’s glans seems to be swollen around the korona. It’s difficult to tell exactly what is swollen, because he is uncut and the foreskin is still attached to the glans (he just turned one in January). I took him to a children’s clinic about two weeks ago after having discovered it.
I was absolutely horrified about it (still am), but the doctors at the hospital didn’t seem very interested. They referred us to a urologist, and we are now waiting for the office to contact us with an appointment.
The swollen area seems to ride the entire length of the korona, looks white-ish when I retract the foreskin, and feels spongy, much like feeling a lipoma. His penis is working normally: urinating regularly and has erections; however, this thing is really bothering me.
Is there anything at all that any of you can think this may be? It may be foreskin related, but I don’t really know anything about living with foreskin. Mine was stolen from me shortly after birth.
