Circumcision is performed to remove the foreskin of the penis. The foreskin is the continuation of the skin that covers the whole penis. The retractable thin layer of the skin covers the end of the penis. Medical and Fitness Centre hosts some of the most experienced doctors performing circumcisions with safe and excellent care.
Foreskin in uncircumcised males – It’s normal for the foreskin of baby boys to not pull back (retract) for the first few years of their lives.
In some boys, it takes even longer for the foreskin to separate, and it does not indicate any problem; the foreskin will simply detach at a later stage. However, as the foreskin starts to separate, you might notice the foreskin “ballooning out” whenever your son passes urine. Occasionally it can lead to infection of the foreskin, but it usually settles down with time. You should never try to force your son’s foreskin back as it may be painful and damage the foreskin. Nonetheless, uncircumcised males must maintain good genital hygiene to prevent possible infections.
Many studies show that the health benefits of circumcision surgery throughout one’s life outweigh the minor risks of the procedure.
- Circumcision makes it simpler to maintain good genital hygiene.
- Decreased risk of urinary tract infections by at least 10-fold.
- Prevents phimosis, paraphimosis, balanitis, and balanoposthitis.
- Reduced risk of sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV, Hep B, genital herpes, gonorrhoea, and syphilis, etc.
- Protection against invasive penile cancer and lower risk of cervical cancer in female partners.
- Fewer chances of developing irritation, inflammation, or infection because of better hygiene.
