Circumcision is a very small procedure which is done on a new born male child where the foreskin of the penis is released. This is mostly done by the general surgeons or paediatricians in the nursery itself on the choice of the parents. In some religions like Islam and Jews, circumcision is done at the time of birth itself.
Some people have to get this procedure done at a more advanced age due to medical reasons. Circumcision can also be a matter of family tradition, personal hygiene or preventive health care.
The medical reasons for circumcision could be a tight foreskin which doesn’t retract over the glans. In some cases of recurrent infection due to poor personal hygiene, circumcision is advised.
Circumcision might have various health benefits, including:
Decreased risk of urinary tract infections
Decreased risk of sexually transmitted infections
Prevention of penile problems
Decreased risk of penile cancer
Helps in cases of Premature Ejaculation
The surgery can be done under Local Anesthesia and takes only about 10 minutes in adults. In newborns the surgery is mostly done by the pediatricians
