Evening,

I was in the bath and decided to have a look at my glans, upon looking and opening my meatus I noticed a tear which is nearly another hole if I was to pull on it any wider. Is this something I should be worried about?

I’m going to see if I can get a GP’s opinion on it.

  • The beauty of a foreskin is in pulling it back.
That does look a bit odd. Is it sore or sensitive to touch?
Can you recall anything that might have caused it e.g. catching it on your zipper?
I agree it would be wise to consult a GP.

I tried googling it (worse possible thing), phoned NHS 24 and they went through their questions and advised me to get a GP appointment tomorrow.

Its not sore or anything like that, I’m keeping my foreskin forward to try and not irritate it until I can be seen. Been advised to keep it dry.

That's bizarre... it almost looks like a minor birth defect, but how would you not have noticed until now?

I have no idea, I’ve looked at my penis numerous times over the years and its the first I’ve noticed. I’m hoping the GP can tell me more.

UPDATE -

I went to the GP this afternoon and he looked at it. He said that I've torn it but it should heal itself in around 2-3 weeks. I've to keep it covered, keep it clean, try and keep it dry as possible after urinating and no sexual activity for those 2-3 weeks. If it hasn't healed I've to go back for another appointment.

Fingers crossed that it sorts itself out, so for the next month I'll be pulled forward. It'll be interesting to see if there any changes to my glans with the month off  8)

It's good to hear that it isn't anything sinister - I hope it heals well.

I cut mine a little by accident with my nail. Took ages to heal fully and was sensitive for quite a while too.
