CIRCUMCISION: What is it?
Circumcision is a minor surgical operation, conducted under local anaesthetic, consisting of the removal of the foreskin, leaving the glans permanently uncovered.

Why is circumcision performed?
Circumcision for health reasons:
TREATMENT OF PHIMOSIS:
Phimosis occurs when the foreskin is tighter than normal, preventing the glans from being completely uncovered. As a consequence, the patient suffers pain and irritation, especially during sexual activity. Thanks to circumcision, this problem is remedied by cutting the unneeded skin.
TREATMENT OF PARAPHIMOSIS:
Paraphimosis occurs when the foreskin retracts and is unable to return to its original position, producing a swelling in the glans. To ensure that this area is not affected, removal of the foreskin is necessary.
TREATMENT OF BALANITIS:
Balanitis is an infection of the glans that causes irritation and pain. Circumcision prevents the infection increasing or extending to the rest of the genital area.
Circumcision for preventive reasons:
Improves reproductive health.
Reduces the risk of contracting STDs.
Reduces the risk of urinary tract infection.
Reduces the incidence of penile cancer.
Circumcision for religious or aesthetic reasons.
