I just talked to my cousin who is very upset because docs (ped., urologist etc.) told her that she may need to circ her four year old. Apparently she took him in because of white bumps on his penis (which turned out to be nothing) and when they retracted his foreskin they found pieces of tissue. they said that it was due to a low-grade adhesion and sifts (?). I was under the impression that skin there was normal and that you aren't supposed to fully retract the foreskin. Regardless she asked me what I thought and my thought is that if it doesn't bother him-and it doesn't- to leave it alone. If there's loose skin it will work it's way out. I'm not sure though so I was wondering if anyone here knows about it. I can't see this poor kid being circ'd because a doctor thinks it's easier or something.
