Now most circumcisions are done for family, cultural, traditional or religious reasons. Many parents who choose circumcision want it for cultural reasons, or so that their son will look like his father or other family members (perhaps older brothers).               Circumcision prevents some infections under the foreskin which may happen in infancy and later childhood. The foreskin traps bacteria, infectious agents and malodorous smegma (The white substance under the foreskin).  Therefore, its removal ensures greater genital hygiene and reduces the risk of infections or diseases for the male and his future sexual partners.  To avoids complications that occurred later in life in other family members necessitating a circumcision during adolescence or adulthood.               Circumcision is not medically necessary unless the procedure is performed to treat and/or totally prevent problems with the foreskin of the penis such as (Phimosis, Paraphimosis, Chordee and recurrent Balanitis).              Circumcised men may run a lower risk of getting sexually transmitted infections, perhaps including HIV. However, circumcision is not an appropriate substitute for other better forms of protection (such as condom use).               Recent research has found that boys who have been circumcised are less likely to have a urinary infection in the first year of their life than boys who have not been circumcised.               Circumcision prevents incidence of cancer of the penis. This cancer occurs in about one in 100,000 uncircumcised men.      There have been increasing claims over recent years of health benefits of male circumcision. Existing scientific evidence demonstrates potential medical benefits of newborn male circumcision; however, the current data is not sufficient to recommend routine circumcision. Parents should determine what is in the best interest of the child prior to committing to a non-essential procedure after weighing up the benefits and potential risks.

Benefits of Circumcision

1.  Eliminated Risk of Foreskin Infections Balanitis is an inflammation of the skin covering the head of the penis. .It causes swelling, rash,  pain and foul-smelling discharge. Circumcision is also used therapeutically, as one of the treatment options for balanitis xerotica obliterans, paraphimosis, balanitis, posthitis, balanoposthitis, urinary tract infections and other skin condition affecting the male genitalia.  2. Eliminated Scarring of the Foreskin Phimosis is a condition involving a tight foreskin that cannot be completely pulled back. This makes cleaning under the skin and passing urine difficult. 3. Decreased Risk of Thrush & STDs The use of condoms is essential for good sexual health regardless of circumcision. It is worth noting however, that the risk of many STDs from HIV to genital warts is reduced by the genital hygiene effects of circumcision. Circumcision can reduce rates of syphilis, chancroid and possibly genital herpes agreeing with 12 meta-analyses. 4. Decreased Risk of Cervical Cancer in Female Partners Male circumcision reduces the risk of Human papilloma virus (HPV) and in his partner. Because any infectious bacteria or viruses living under a foreskin are transferred into the female during sexual contact, circumcision reduces the transmission of diseases like Chlamydia and the associated HPV virus which causes cervical cancer. 5. Decreased Risk of HIV Recent rise in incidence of HIV infection among heterosexual Australians has led to a call by some physicians for the reintroduction of routine circumcision in infants as a preventative measure. Circumcision reduces the risk of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection up to 63%. Over 40 separate studies have shown that uncircumcised men are more likely to become infected with HIV and sexually transmitted diseases on sexual exposure. The ease with which the foreskin tears during intercourse, leaving mini-abrasions through which the viruses and bacteria enter the foreskin could lead to the infections. There is some evidence, particularly from Sub-Saharan Africa, that male circumcision reduces the risk of acquiring HIV. Evidence is conflicting and clearly this cannot be seen as an argument in favour of universal neonatal circumcision in countries with a low prevalence of HIV 6. Decreased risk of Penile Cancer Penile Cancer is a rare but serious disease which rarely occurs in circumcised males. Penile cancers are rare with an incidence of around 1 per 100,000 in developed countries. The rarity of the condition is such that universal circumcision is not clearly justified on these grounds. It has been known for over 100 years that circumcised men almost never get invasive penile cancer, a devastating disease which is more deadly than breast cancers (with lower 5 year survival rate). About 1400 U.S. men get this disease per year and over 200 die annually, almost all of them uncircumcised. 7. Decreased risk of Urinary Tract Infections Urinary tract infections are particularly dangerous in infancy and in 40% of cases can lead to kidney inflammation and disease. Urinary Tract Infections (U.T.I.) in boys are uncommon, affecting at most 1-2%. Circumcised boys are about 10 times less likely to get Urinary Tract Infections and serious kidney infections in the first year of life as compared to uncircumcised infants. Fecal contamination of the moist inner layer of the foreskin with bacteria is thought to lead to these Urinary Tract Infections.These kidney infections are most dangerous in the first 3 months, during which time they often lead to hospitalization and can result in serious blood infection (Septicemia). Kidney scarring has been shown may occur later on in life. There is concern that future kidney failure and high blood pressure may follow infantile Urinary Tract Infections. Abnormal kidney function and hormonal secretion can occur with infant Urinary Tract Infections. Circumcision aids in sexual enhancement for satisfaction. Circumcision aids in hygiene, infectious and chronic conditions
