Penis with phimosis before circumcision. The patient has diabetes, a condition that can lead to inflammation and swelling of the foreskin if blood sugar levels are too high. This can lead to, or worsen, phimosis, an overly tight foreskin that is difficult to retract. Here, the foreskin will be removed (circumcision) to avoid a recurrence of these symptoms.
