How is circumcision conducted?
The penis and its foreskin are cleaned during circumcision, and then the foreskin is removed. Parents of children who are undergoing circumcision should discuss pain relief options with their doctors.
A topical cream may be applied on the penis or an anesthetic may numb the region before the surgery. Before the procedure, acetaminophen is also occasionally given along with anesthesia.
Who qualifies for the procedure?
Older men and boys may need circumcision because of medical problems such as:
- Preventing recurring inflammation of the foreskin (phimosis)
- Penis infections, a tight foreskin that causes urination pain or spraying

Why is the procedure conducted?
In several parts of the world, circumcision is a religious or spiritual practice. Personal hygiene or preventative health care is also among the reasons why circumcisions are carried out. It also reduces the likelihood of sexually transmitted diseases or penile cancer.
What are the benefits?
Circumcision may have several health advantages, including:
- Easy hygiene. Circumcision makes washing the penis easier. However, uncircumcised boys can be taught to wash under the foreskin regularly.
- Reduced risk of urinary tract infection. The risk of infection with the urinary tract is said to be minimal for men who have undergone circumcision. Early in childhood, severe infections might lead to renal problems later.
- The danger of sexually transmitted infections decreases. However, safe sexual practices continue to be essential.
- On an uncircumcised penis, retraction of the foreskin is sometimes difficult or impossible. It can lead to foreskin or penis head inflammation.
- Reduces risk of penile cancer.
What are the complications?
- The foreskin may have been cut too short.
- The foreskin may not heal properly.
- The rest of the foreskin may reattach to the penis, requiring surgical repair.
There isn't much evidence to support this. Circumcision in childhood - but not in adulthood - may lower the chance of penile cancer, although this illness is extremely rare, and the real risk factors include poor personal hygiene and smoking. Indeed, countries with the highest circumcision rates also have the highest incidences of penile cancer.

Our Patient Speaks
When I got admitted to Apollo Spectra, initially I faced some glitches, such as unavailability of drinking water and extra bed for the attendant, and electric sockets were not working. However, post-complaint, everything was arranged according to my liking and the staff sorted out all the issues. It was commendable that everyone at the hospital was always ready to help. This was certainly a plus point because issues crop up, but the way you rectify it matters. Overall, it was a good experience.
