Circumcision is the practice of surgically removing the foreskin from a penis. This is typically done in infancy for religious or cultural reasons, although it can be done at any age.
More About Circumcision
Circumcision is most practiced in Muslim nations, the United States, as well as areas of Southeast Asia and Africa. In other parts of the world, such as Europe, the practice is relatively rare. In some cases, circumcision is performed for therapeutic or prophylactic reasons. It is used as a treatment option for certain conditions. It is contraindicated in some cases for genetic structural reasons, or poor general health. For the most part, the risks outweigh the benefits when completed after infancy.
