What Is Circumcision All About?
- 6 Months ago
Male circumcision is the surgical removal of the fore skin. Foreskin is the fold of skin covering the end of the penis which can be gently pulled back. Circumcision is a common procedure that is carried out in newborn boys in certain parts of the world.
While for some families, circumcision is a family tradition or a religious ritual, for others, it can be for personal hygiene or a form of preventive health care. Sometimes, there can also be a medical emergency for a circumcision when the foreskin is too tight to be pulled back over the glans.
