What are the benefits and costs of circumcision?

adult circumcision QueenslandCircumcision has been the topic of debate for many decades. Research and scientific studies indicate that there are a number of medical benefits that result from this procedure.

Circumcision benefits include:

  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) was reduced by 53% to 60%.
  • Herpes Simplex Virus type 2 (HSV-2) was reduced by 28% to 34%.
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV) was reduced by 32% to 35%.
  • Among female partners of circumcised men, Bacterial Vaginosis was reduced by 40% and Trichomonas Vaginalis infection was reduced by 48%. As many of these studies were done in developing countries, it is possible that the protective effects of circumcision may be lower in Australia.

Additional health benefits of circumcision include the following:

  • Lower risk of getting cancer of the penis, a rare type of cancer.
  • Lower risk of urinary tract infections during the first year of life. Urinary tract infections during the first year of life can be serious and may lead to hospitalisation. An uncircumcised baby boy has a 1 in 100 chance of getting a urinary tract infection during the first year of life, compared with a 1 in 1000 chance for a circumcised baby boy.
  • Prevention of foreskin infections.
  • Prevention of phimosis, a painful condition in which the foreskin retracts. Circumcised males do not get this condition.
  • Easier genital hygiene.
  • Studies now show that circumcision may also significantly reduce Prostate Cancer.

Because so many studies have indicated a link between circumcisions and improved health and lower incidence of serious, sometimes deadly diseases, demand for infant circumcision has increased dramatically.
