What is Circumcision?
Circumcision is the surgical removal of all or part of the foreskin (skin covering the head of the penis). The decision to be circumcised is very personal and should only be made after careful consideration. We encourage you to discuss any questions or concerns with your health-care provider. Reasons for circumcision generally fall into three broad groups:
To treat a medical condition
To prevent future disease
To fulfill a religious/cultural tradition
Who can be circumcised:
Boys/Men of all ages can be circumcised.
