Abstract

Abstract: Circumcision is the most common surgery performed worldwide and about 30% of men are circumcised, of whom 70% are Muslim. The majority of male neonates are circumcised based on religious and cultural practices. Neonatal circumcision has several advantages when compared to an older age group receiving the procedure. There is considerable controversy about circumcision neonatal or otherwise. The clinical benefits of circumcision include reducing the risk of urinary tract infection (UTI), sexually transmitted disease (STD), HIV infection, phimosis, balanitis and penile cancer. The most common complications of circumcision are infection, bleeding and failure to remove enough foreskin. These complications occur in less than 1% of all performed circumcisions.
