The glans penis can be described as the rounded head or tip of the penis. Located in the middle of the glans penis is the opening of the urethra, the tube through which semen and urine exits the body. Often referred to as the penis's 'head,' the term glans penis was derived from the Latin word for 'acorn. At birth, the glans of the penis is attached to an area of skin called the foreskin. Over time, this foreskin will begin to separate from the glans, until the skin is able to full retract.

Balanitis is an inflammation of the glans, or the head, of the penis, due to infection or another cause. Balanitis can be uncomfortable and sometimes painful, but it is not usually serious. It can be relieved with topical medication. It is a common condition, affecting approximately 1 in every 25 boys and 1 in 30 uncircumcised males at some time in their life. Boys under the age of 4 years and uncircumcised men are at the highest risk, but it can happen at any age. It is more likely if there is phimosis, a condition where the foreskin of the penis is too tight.
