Circumcision Not Recommended

Lymphedema is localized fluid retention of the lymph system. It is typically seen after an injury, cancer radiation treatment, or a parasitic infection. In men, it can occur in the groin after surgery for prostate, colon, or testicular cancer in which removal of lymph nodes was required. Penile lymphedema is recognized by a swollen penis and discolored skin.

Treatment can consist of specialized massage techniques, compression garments, liposuction, and decongestive therapy; all of which retain the foreskin. In severe cases, surgery might be used to correct the condition, which might result in losing the foreskin or other parts of the penis.
