In brief: Prevention
Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin, a small flap of skin that covers the tip of the penis, generally performed in the days after birth.
Examination of scientific studies between 1995 and now shows links between circumcision and decreased risks for urinary tract infections, some kinds of cancer, hpv, hiv, and other sexually transmitted diseases. There is a preventative effect.

In brief: Circumcision
Circumcision is a personal choice allowed here due to a long history of individual freedom. Some religious reasons are important as is a risk reduction of penile cancer and transmission of HIV virus.
Although there is no strictly medical reason to do it, it will continue to remain an option for parents and their newborn sons.
