Circumcision – Risks and Benefits



Carrying out male circumcision for health or medical reasons is a sensitive issue that continues to be debated throughout the world. In many countries, the procedure is performed only as a last resort, when all treatment options have failed. Many factors such as personal preferences, religion and culture also have a say in circumcision.

Benefits of circumcision

As per some scientific evidence, circumcision has the following health benefits:

–        Reduced risk of penis cancer

–        Reduced risk of urinary tract infections

–        Prevention of phimosis (condition in which one is unable to properly retract the penile foreskin) and paraphimosis (condition in which the retracted foreskin cannot be returned to its original position)

–        Reduce risk of many sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV

–        Possibly reduced risk of prostate cancer, as per a study published in year 2012 in the journal ‘Cancer’

–        Prevention of Balanoposthitis (inflammation of penile foreskin and penile head) and Balinitis (inflammation of penile head)

Possible risks associated with circumcision

As in the case of any surgical procedure, circumcision also has certain risks associated with it. However, these risks are quite low in comparison to any normal surgery. Some of them are:

–        Risk of permanent injury to penile shaft

–        Enhanced risk of inflammation of penile opening (meatitis)

–        Severe pain

–        Irritation in penile head

–        Risk of infection and continuous bleeding at the place of circumcision

Neglecting one’s penile health can have devastating effects on one’s sexual life.
