what is the prevailing opinion on getting circumcisions?

1 doctor answer
Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
Both for ; against: I circumcise after informing parents or older child of benefits and risks because it's my job.Circumcisions are performed for religious reasons or because many think it more hygienic.It is if you don't wash.Others have it done to prevent future problems with a tight foreskin (phimosis)others have it done after episodes of balanitis (inflammation of penile glans), esthetics, premature ejaculations.

Prostatitis: Is not related to circumcision or cancer in and of itself. Please see a urologist who can assess the entire situation. Peace and good health.
