5 Common Beliefs About Penis Size -True or False?

Getting "the cut" is not an easy thing to do but
circumcision is often considered necessary or desirable.
Circumcision is not just an issue for the parents of baby
boys. Older children, adolescents and grown men also
make decisions about undergoing circumcision.
Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin of the
penis. The foreskin is a flap of skin that overlaps the penis
end, or glans. The foreskin is normally fused to the glans
at birth and it separates during childhood. By puberty,
boys should be able to pull the foreskin back to clean
beneath it. So should you go for the cut? Should you have
your baby boy circumcised? Is circumcision healthy or
should circumcision be avoided? Are there any risks
involved in circumcision? And will circumcision affect your
sex life or the future health of your child?

How many men today are circucmsized? The trend today is
towards the
non-circumcised penis. According to figures
from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(2010), the number of circumcisions has declined sharply
in the United States. The percentage of the male
population undergoing circumcisions dropped from 56% in
2006 to just 32.5% in 2009.

Whether the figures for circumcision rise or fall, it remains
a highly controversial issue. Apart from the religious
reasons for circumcision, we need to consider medical
evidence for and against circumcision, as well as questions
of social acceptability, aesthetics and sexual pleasure. Most
medical organizations take an “it’s up to you” line when it
comes to circumcision, being neither for nor against the
procedure in principle. The American Academy of
Pediatrics in 1975 said “there is no absolute medical
indication for routine circumcision of the newborn." This
organization, along with others, has restated this position
ever since.

We looked at the pros and cons of circumcision to give you
all the details about this controversial yet common

Reasons You Should Be Circumcised

Circumcision can reduce urinary tract infections

The risk of urinary tract infections in baby boys appears to
be lower when the boys are circumcised shortly after birth,
according to many experts.

Is circumcision a good way to cut down on the incidence
of often serious urinary tract infections among young
boys? Circumcision stops bacteria growing under the
foreskin and therefore may protect boys against the
development of infections in the urinary tract. According to
a 2000 study from the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care
Program of Northern California, Oakland circumcising boys
results in a 9.1-fold
decrease in urinary tract infection
rates during their first year of life. The study showed that
out of 154 male babies with urinary tract infections, 86
percent were non-circumcised.

Circumcision Can Reduce the Risk of Penile Cancer

Can circumcision be a protective force against penis
cancer? Penis cancer is rare, comprising just 0.4% of all
cancers affecting men, according to a 2003 University of
Oklahoma Health Sciences Center study.

When compared to uncircumcised men, men who have
been circumcised tend to have a lower risk of suffering
rare but deadly penile cancer.

According to a 2005 study from the Division of Public
Health Sciences, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center,
Seattle circumcision in the early years of childhood may
help prevent penile cancer by cutting down on the
incidence of phimosis.

Phimosis is a condition where the foreskin cannot be fully
retracted. Paraphimosis is when the foreskin cannot return
to its original location once retracted.

Phimosis is a significant risk factor for penile cancer.
Uncircumcised men were at increased risk of invasive but
not in situ penis cancer and approximately 35 percent of
uncircumcised men with penis cancer reported a history of
phimosis compared to 7.6 percent in the control

Phimosis is also strongly associated with the development
of a particularly aggressive form of invasive penile cancer.
A 1993 study by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research
Center, Seattle reported that non-circumcision was
associated with an increased risk of penile cancer - the risk
for this kind of cancer is
3.2 times greater for men who
had never been circumcised.

Circumcision Can Reduce the Incidence of Cervical Cancer

When it comes to cervical cancer, a woman’s cancer, men
still play a role. Circumcised men are reportedly less likely
to pick up and pass on the virus that causes most cervical

The human papillomavirus is responsible for the
development of cervical cancer in women. Circumcision can
help by removing the environment for harboring the virus
– the foreskin – and thus cutting down on transmission of
the virus to female sex partners.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer,
Multicenter Cervical Cancer Study Group at the Hospitalet
de Llobregat, Barcelona, Spain in 2002 reported that
circumcision is linked with the reduced risk of penile
human papillomavirus infection and the reduced risk of
cervical cancer in the men’s female partners.

Penile human papillomavirus was found in 19.6 percent of
the non-circumcised men and in only 5.5 percent of the
circumcised men.

Circumcision Can Reduce Your Risk of Catching a Sexually
Transmitted Disease (STD)
