Is Circumcision Necessary?
Depending on culture and religion, circumcision is a tradition or religious rite. In the US though, majority of the boys are being circumcised mainly for social or religious reasons. Currently, there’s discussion whether circumcision is recommended from medical standpoint.
There are many possible benefits of circumcision but also, there are risks associated to it. Studies discovered that infants who are circumcised have lower risks of catching UTI, although these aren’t common in boys and may occur less in circumcised boys, normally in their first year. Besides, neonatal circumcision offers a level of protection from penile cancer, which is a rare condition.
