Hey guys. I'm uncircumcised (also unable to retract fully), and I've just always really wondered about some of my penis-related questions. For one, my frenulum is really red, almost like raised lips on the head of my penis and the connection to the shaft is very noticeable too (in fact I didn't know other people even had frenulum's or knew what they were called until a good health class because mine's so much more "obvious", if that's the right word). Any ideas why/how it's like this? I masturbate a good amount, and I'm not sexually active, but even when I can't (vacations, etc) the redness doesn't seem to go away, making me believe I didn't cause it. Last time I went to the doctor for a physical he commented on it, but he didn't know people's foreskins sometimes don't retract so i didn't bother talking to him further about it.
Also, there's a bump on the base of the frenulum on the right side of it's "lip" that's been there for longer than I remember. It doesn't hurt and hasn't grown ever so I never got it looked at, but it sort of looks like a blackhead in that it's raised up with a blacker looking dot in the middle of it. If anyone has any ideas what that might be too that would be awesome.
This forum is so helpful :smile:
