Circumcision removes the foreskin covering the glans (head) of the male private part. Usually, babies undergo circumcision shortly after birth. Circumcision began as a religious rite. Today, people get circumcised for religious, medical, and cultural reasons.
Many baby boys get circumcised, usually within the first week of life. Adults can get circumcised as well, though it’s less common. You must hire a well-trained and reliable urologist or a pediatrician to perform the circumcision process.

Like any surgery, circumcision can cause some pain. But using pain medications and anesthetics can reduce discomfort. These can help both during the procedure and afterward.
Also, male circumcision can reduce a woman’s risk of cervical cancer. Female partners of circumcised males were less likely to contract HPV (Human Papillomavirus). HPV is a common cause of cervical cancer in women. Women with cervical cancer in advanced stages may need to undergo treatments that can impact their fertility. Chemotherapy, radiation treatment, and surgery can each significantly lower or totally eliminate a woman’s possibility of future pregnancy.
The removal of the foreskin can allow for more direct access to the male private part for easier cleaning. By removing or reducing the foreskin, men may experience fewer complications and may have reduced risk of penile issues.
