Male circumcision is an operation to remove the foreskin that covers the tip of the penis. The functions of the foreskin include protecting the head of the penis and contributing to sexual sensations. While recent research suggests that circumcision may bring some medical benefits, some doctors believe these are too small to justify surgery. A medical circumcision is a circumcision performed to treat a disease, such as pathological phimosis lichen sclerosis , recurrent balanitis or recurrent urinary tract infections. A request circumcision is a circumcision performed for non-medical reasons, such as parental preference, religious reasons or to potentially prevent disease at some future time. Circumcision is mostly performed on babies for family, religious or cultural reasons. When considering circumcision for your baby, you need to be aware of the possible risks and benefits. You should also be aware that the rights of parents to give consent to a circumcision for their child are disputed.
