    My nephew had something like this, I do not know the actual term.

    My brother and sil toilet trained him sitting down to pee as it went sideways, and took the wait and see approach. They ended up having to get him circumcised at age 11, as he didn't want to go into high school sitting to pee.

    I think that the reason they waited was to see if when his foreskin did retract by itself that perhaps the problem would rectify on its own.

    My DS has a bend at the tip of his penis. I mentioned it to my GP and she referred us to a paed urologist for a non urgent appt. She seemed to think it was just excess skin he'd grow in to. That was 6 months ago and the hospital wrote to say to expect an appt in 12 mths! Having read all these posts I'm worried it may be something more serious now. Obviously I don't know which way he weeks as he's still in nappies.

    I wouldn't worry. It needs looking at but is not an urgent thing, as in unless it is making your son unwell with uti's etc and in which case there is probably something else going on.

    I would want it looked at and if necessary fixed, but it is ok to wait

    So we saw pead today who told me to put steriod cream on his foreskin and try and slowly retract it by loosening it. Either foreskin is to tight or something wrong with the actual penis. But can't see that until foreskin retracts. I am not 100% sure about this. He's not even 5 months yet6. Surely we could wait a bit? Anyone eose had this issue?
