Best option for frenulum breve?
I'm 16 and i think i have frenulum breve. When flaccid, i can pull my foreskin down past my head just fine, but the head sort of bends down at a 90 degree angle like the frenulum is pulling it down. When erect, i can naturally get my foreskin around halfway down the head before it begins to feel tight and i can't pull further without manual stretching. Even so, masturbation is impossible for me when my foreskin goes past the head, and it gets caught under the head too (But i am able to get it back to normal so it's not an emergency). I've tried stretching for a while but not really any use. Question is, do i have phimosis? paraphimosis? frenulum breve? all 3? something else? If the answer is frenulum breve, i may consider a frenuloplasty, but i'm not sure whether to have one now/next time i have a break from college, or wait until i'm 18.
Getting it now:
-Parents have to know so it will be really awkward having to tell them
-Could be free under NHS but unsure as i haven't checked whether they do it or not
-Sex/Masturbation is much more viable sooner rather than later
-May not be necessary as i'm not in any relationships right now and doesn't look that way for a while
-May interrupt A Levels (Probably Not)
Getting it age 18:
-Parents don't have to know so it saves the awkwardness
-Will definitely have to pay
-Only have to wait around 1 1/2 years without sex/girls
-If i WERE to have sex it'd be embarassing/painful/impossible
Just wondering which is the best option.

Diagnosis should be possible in a routine checkup with a physician. No need to tell anyone other than the physician. Diagnoses might also be possible with a bit of experimentation while referring to a medical text, though this is likely to be inaccurate according to the sources (below). According to the sources, there is some likelihood of resolving itself from tearing but that wouldn't be pleasant.Source(s): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frenulum_breve http://www.urology-textbook.com/frenulum-breve.htm... http://www.urology-textbook.com/peyronies-treatmen... http://www.urology-textbook.com/phimosis.html
