What Is Circumcision?

Circumcision is a procedure in which the extra foreskin from the head of the penis is removed surgically. This can be done for various reasons such as religious, cultural, or medical needs. Circumcision can be performed on adults as well as infants very easily and smoothly. Circumcision cures and prevents several foreskin-related serious diseases. In most cases, it is performed to cure phimosis. However, it can also be done to treat or prevent paraphimosis, balanitis, balanoposthitis, and other diseases that they may lead to in case they are left untreated. 

Benefits Of Circumcision In Adults

There is more than enough evidence that circumcision has several health benefits for adults. This includes the following.

Prevents Phimosis

Phimosis is a medical condition in males in which the foreskin doesn’t pull back from the tip of the penis. Phimosis is a common problem in young boys which is cured on its own after a point of time. However, in case of adults, timely and proper treatment becomes essential. Uncircumcised men are twice at the risk of penile cancer than those who have been circumcised. Circumcision offers a permanent solution to phimosis, which prevents other serious complications from arising.

Read- Difference between Phimosis and Paraphimosis

Prevents Paraphimosis

In this condition, the foreskin gets stuck behind the head of the penis. This decreases the blood flow towards the penis, which can be dangerous. Paraphimosis is considered a medical emergency that needs immediate medical intervention. Untreated paraphimosis can potentially cause Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). Experts also believe that untreated phimosis leads to paraphimosis. Hence, treating phimosis prevents the risk of paraphimosis.

Prevents Balanitis

In this condition, the head of the penis is inflamed or swollen due to several sexually transmitted infections like skin irritation, thrush, or any other skin conditions. Usually, this problem does not affect a circumcised man. Surgical circumcision is considered the best and permanent treatment of balanitis.

Prevents Balanoposthitis

Balanoposthitis inflames the glans penis and foreskin which causes pain, burning sensation, irritation, and unusual discharge from the penis. Not only this, but conditions such as skin erosion or lesions may also occur in some cases of balanoposthitis. Balanoposthitis can potentially cause pain and discomfort during urination and sexual activities. 

Apart from all the above-mentioned conditions, circumcision also makes it easier to clean the penile region, lowers the risk of Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs), reduces the risk of sexually transmitted diseases and protects against penile cancer in men, and lowers the riks of cervical cancer in female sex partners. Therefore, undergoing circumcision is always considered the best decision.

Benefits of Laser Circumcision

Circumcision can be done in a traditional way (with the help of a blade) or with the help of a laser. Traditional circumcision is a complex procedure that involves a blade. During this procedure, the surgeon cuts away the extra foreskin with the help of a blade. This causes severe pain, bleeding, and discomfort. The risk of getting an infection or other complications during or after traditional circumcision is also high.

However, during laser circumcision; the surgeon uses a laser beam to remove the extra foreskin from the head of the penis. It is a modern and advanced way of performing circumcision. It does not involve a big incision, stitches, bleeding, pain, or discomfort. Laser circumcision is an absolutely painless and bloodless procedure. The chances of infection or other complications during or after this procedure are almost zero. Not only this, but the recovery period after laser circumcision is also quick and comfortable as compared to traditional circumcision. Below are the other top benefits of laser circumcision.
