Male health: That size is fine. But why are you so concerned about his current size and his future size? The size of the penis doesn't make the man/ boy.

A 38-year-old member asked:

If it is a boy should I get him circumcised?

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Jeannette Lager
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Yes: Circumcision is an elective procedure and is a decision for the patient and her partner. The benefits of the procedure are a decreased risk in penile cancer (which is quite low in general) and decreased risk of HIV transmission (studied in a high risk population in africa). The risks are inherent to almost any procedure--bleeding, infection, damage to the penis. These risks are quite low.
