According to Dr. Brian Morris, a professor emeritus at the University of Sydney, the health benefits of circumcision for infant males outweigh the risks by 100 to one. He also states that circumcision will save half of uncircumcised males from an adverse medical condition caused by foreskin. The American Academy of Pediatrics supports education of parents about circumcision’s aesthetic and medical benefits. A new study conducted by the University of Washington suggests that circumcision benefits babies in two ways. The first benefit is protection from urinary tract infections.
These infections affect one in three men who aren’t circumcised. Second, the procedure reduces the risk of contracting genital herpes, which can cause a range of problems in babies. The third benefit of circumcision is decreased risk of cervical cancer, which can also affect the quality of a man’s sexual life. Moreover, a circumcised boy is less likely to develop penile problems such as phimosis, a condition wherein the penis becomes inflamed. It can also prevent HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. And, as a result, circumcised males are less likely to experience urinary tract infections.
In addition, they are less likely to have bladder or kidney problems later in life. The American Academy of Pediatrics has highlighted the health benefits of a circumcision for newborn boys. The risk of clitorises caused by chronic nerve irritation can be reduced if the foreskin is removed. Researchers have also found circumcision can help prevent HIV spread to the female partner. It is still unclear if circumcision has any effect on HIV transmission to the male partner. Even though the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases is a strong reason to undergo this procedure, there are some risks associated with it. Side effects can occur as with any surgery.
For instance, a doctor may suggest an anesthesia that isn’t safe. Before a man can have intercourse, he will need to heal the incision. Most cases of circumcision do not result in sexually transmitted disorders. It can increase the risk of other types of cancer. The procedure will also increase the risk of cancer of the penis. Also, circumcision can prevent genital herpes as well as HIV. The risk of developing genital and sexual herpes is increased by the foreskin, which has been linked to HIV risk factors. The CDC has recommended male circumcision for children at high risk of AIDS.
The surgical procedure is safe and beneficial, even though it can cause cancer or bacterial infections. It reduces the risk of developing a urinary tract infection in infants. Although the procedure is relatively simple, there are still risks. An uncircumcised male may experience irritation on the tip of the penis. It can lead to genital herpes. However, men who are circumcised are less likely than others to develop genital herpes. It also helps to prevent certain conditions of the penis.
The circumcised penis is easier to clean and maintain. And the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that men have their baby’s penis circumcised. There are very few risks associated with circumcision. It has been proven that circumcision reduces the risk of PHIENA (a common infection in the penis). Proper hygiene can reduce some of these risks. A blood infection of the foreskin is rare. Most males who undergo this procedure do it because of the many benefits.
Half of uncircumcised males are likely to develop a serious medical condition in their lifetime. In addition, the surgery will significantly lower the risk of HIV by 60 percent. The 18-year-old age limit for male sex is 18 years. Although there are risks associated with this surgery, they are generally low-risk. It is more painful than other procedures and may cause more psychological trauma. Besides, men who have undergone circumcision are less likely to get HIV or cervical cancer. The procedure does not require a sterile penis or special medication.
