There are three types of penile adhesions: glanular adhesions, penile skin bridges and cicatrix. Some adhesions may develop due to an excess of residual foreskin following a newborn circumcision. Adhesions can also form as an infant develops more fat in his pubic area the area around the penis and scrotum. Because the penis remains hidden there is a tendency for the shaft skin to adhere to the glans.
The glans penis is a structure at the distal end of the penis in male mammals. It is the sensitive bulbous structure at the end of the human penis , and is anatomically homologous to the clitoral glans of the human female. The glans penis may be smooth, spiny, elongated, or divided in other mammals. Typically, the glans is completely or partially covered by the foreskin in humans, except in those who have been circumcised.
