(FAQ) What are the medical reasons for adult circumcision | Dr. Harold Reed | The Reed Centre for Cosmetic Circumcision

Dr. Reed,  Why do adult men seek circumcision?  Are there any medical reasons?  Chaz

Dear Chaz, Here are some medical reasons why a man might choose to get circumcised:

Phimosis: This is a medical condition in which the foreskin covering the penis is too tight and is hard to retract.

Penile cancer: Although rare, penile cancer is less common in a circumcised penis.

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs): Risks for genital ulcers, chlamydiahuman papillomavirus (HPV)syphilis, and type 2 herpes have been shown to be lower in men who have circumcised penises.

HIV transmission: Several international studies show that circumcision lowers the risk of HIV transmission.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that men consider circumcision as an additional measure, along with safe sex, to prevent HIV.
