Circumcision reduces the risk of sexually transmitted infection and reduces risk of cancer.
Reduced risk of STIs
Uncircumcised men are more prone to infections because the foreskin provides a moist and warm environment suitable for the growth of microorganisms.Studies show that circumcised men have lower chances of sexually transmitted infections like herpes, HIV, and human papillomavirus. One study says that circumcised men have a 50-60% reduced chance of acquiring STIs like immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
There is no need to take extra measures to maintain the hygiene of a circumcised penis. An uncircumcised penis may lead to smell and inflammation of the skin balanitis.
Reduced risk of cancer
Circumcision rules out the risk of penile cancer, a rare but fatal condition in men.
