Speaking only on behalf of a medical standpoint, Dr. Elist reviews the benefits of male circumcision (Circumcision Effects on Male Sexual Satisfaction) in this weekly review.
Dr Elist Reviews Benefits of Circumcision
For males, the benefits of circumcision have been well studied and reviewed. It has been shown that male circumcision yields a decreased adult risk of certain sexually transmitted diseases (Circumcision Advantages | Disadvantages) such as Human Papiloma Virus (HPV in Men) (HPV) as well as HIV (HIV Prevention), and in children it has been shown to decrease the risk of urinary tract infections. In addition, it has been proposed that male circumcision leads to a decreased risk of penile cancer (Guidelines for Penile Cancer) as well as cervical cancer in females. This may be attributed to the decreased risk of HPV which is a known cause of cervical cancer in women.
