Anyone know anything about circumcision?

Just started training DS (nearly 3). I have noticed that when he wees, his willy swells up quite a bit before the wee comes out. Should I take him to GP or is it too early to tell if it's going to be a problem.

I had a charge who has this (I'm a nanny) and his skin was just a bit tight and the GP said he owuld grow out it. But if it hurts / he has any trouble going then to take him back to gp.

Might be worth getting it checked over just to be on safe side though - if only to put your mind at rest?

copied and pasted as posting one-handed but:

Ballooning of the foreskin while urinating can be a normal phase of development during childhood. It is not an indication for circumcision. Ballooning is a temporary phenomenon that arises when the foreskin begins to separate from the glans. It speeds the process of separation and disappears when the process is complete.

Thanks for those replies. It isn't bothering him but if it does I'll get it checked out. At the moment I feel as though I'm going to be looking at it several times a day forever!
