The majority of men who are circumcised are operated on at a young age. As a result of recent research showing certain health benefits, adults are increasingly choosing surgery for foreskin ablation.
This is decision men have to make based on accurate information and recommendations from a qualified urologist. Understanding why and how Circumcision procedure can help men decide if surgery is an option for them and how to plan male private part care after surgery and in the future.

Reasons for circumcision
Phimosis/Paraphimosis – When the foreskin is so tight that it doesn't easily fold over the male private part (phimosis), or when it falls behind the head of the male private part (paraphimosis), complications can arise, including loss of blood flow. While there are other ways to deal with this problem, men with ongoing problems can easily remove the foreskin.
Penile Cancer – With evidence that the foreskin increases the risk of penile cancer, men who are at high risk of developing the disease or who have developed foreskin cancer cells can be circumcised for medical reasons.
HIV / AIDS – Research in Africa shows that circumcision reduces the risk of HIV infection by up to 50% – a fact that the procedure itself considers a vulnerable population. However, circumcision alone cannot provide complete protection, so men who have done it should still take the appropriate precautions.
