Urologist or derma or any other doctor out there. can they perform a circumcision on buried/hidden penis? and giv me an answer if it is a "yes or "no

Urologist or derma or any other doctor out there. can they perform a circumcision on buried/hidden penis? and giv me an answer if it is a "yes or "no

Yes you can...but...: A buried penis is a congenital problem, which is to say, "you're born with it". A circumcision is best carried out early (neonatal). For the most part, however, buried penis will likely resolve. If there are issues as a teen, where obesity makes the problem worse, weight loss is the best answer. Surgery at that age requires more extensive fat removal from around the penis and is painful. ...Read more

Need doctor's help! what do you think about circumcision?

Here are some ...: Despite the debate between the much emotional anti-circ camp and the much professional pro-circ camp, largely, in adults, circumcision has definitely benefited men from getting rid of a long protracted mental and physical agony by recurrent balanoposthitis in long tight foreskin after a proper counsel for its indication, technical detail, potential complications, and realistic expectation.

Is female circumcision still practiced legally by doctors in any countries in the world?

I agree with Dr. : Sudler. What is tragic is that even in countries where female genital mutilation (fgm) (more accurate terminology) is commonly practiced but has been legally banned- there are very few cases prosecuted. There is great opposition within those countries to banning fgm. It is interesting that after extensively researching which countries have no ban on fgm - I am only able to find gambia. >. ...Read more

I've been to a doctor and now I have to get a circumcision. I'm wondering, would that be a big difference for me, and do adults like it afterwards?

I've been to a doctor and now I have to get a circumcision. I'm wondering, would that be a big difference for me, and do adults like it afterwards?

Only better!: Once healed, circumcised males have fewer cleanliness and odor issues, somewhat increased sensitivity with sexual relations, and lower risks of certain types of communicable diseases or cancer. All good. And the scarring is usually minimal, so things look like, well, most men out there, since a majority of men are (still, these days) circumcised. Just have an expert do the surgery! ...Read more
