Couldn't find what you looking for?


I am 16 and I have recently noticed there is a string of skin connecting the foreskin to the head of my penis, it’s not my “banjo string” there is a second one to the right of it maybe an inch away. It doesn’t hurt but I’m somewhat concerned, please help. Do I need surgery?


Hi Guest,

The second string is likely a "skin tag."  They are very common and usually resolve on their own by around age 16 or so.  Give it some time.  As you got older your foreskin separates normally from the glans.

Normal erections and masturbation will help it separate.  Don't force it.  It can tear and leave a scar.
