Circumcision has many benefits. One of the best known is the reduction in the risk of the transmission of infections to the child through the vaginal channel after the operation. This method is preferred by many parents as it is painless, almost undetectable, and temporary. The newborn is placed under hypnosis to help him focus on his healing. The advantages of circumcision are many and make it a better option than letting the child suffer with an open wound for years. However, there are also some drawbacks to circumcision that must be considered before you decide to go ahead with the procedure.
Hygiene: Male children are more susceptible to infections than females because they don’t always practice good hygiene. They may not use a towel after urinating and the diaper may not get changed until it is changed. This means that boys have no protection against dirt and germs that can lead to infection. Boys who are not properly dressed in the genital area are more likely to get cuts and bruises. Infections of bacterial diseases are more common in male infants who don’t wash their hands regularly.
The risk of developing penile cancer is lower when circumcision is performed. The reason is that the foreskin can be exposed to elements that the body doesn’t normally encounter. If the tip of the penis is removed, there is an increased risk of contracting penile cancer. Because the exposed penis portion is removed, circumcision reduces the chance of developing this cancer. Also, uncircumcised males are less likely to get HIV infection.
Male children remain healthy for longer: Children who are circumcised are less likely to have infections as adults. The foreskin is sealed during the operation, preventing bacteria and viruses from entering. As a result, there is a decreased risk of acquiring HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases in the future. Another benefit of circumcision? It continues to increase a man’s chances of avoiding oral, cervical, and prostate cancer. The risk of developing these diseases as a man ages is reduced by circumcision.
Circumcision does NOT cause complications. Infections can occur after the operation, but they usually disappear within a few weeks. In the last twenty years, there have been no reported complications. Incorrectly removing the penis, or if there is injury at the penis’ base, can lead to complications. Death due to complications is rare, but the death of a baby due to incorrect circumcision has in the recent past. These problems can be avoided if parents choose a good clinic.
A male newborn does not lose his sexual ability. However, some medical organizations discourage the practice of neonatal circumcision. It is said that these problems are caused by infections. The medical community is unanimous in their belief that the procedure is safe, effective, and improves sexual function. Moreover, this procedure has been adopted by Jewish, Muslim and Baha’i communities. Most medical societies don’t encourage neonatal circumcision. They believe the advantages outweigh the drawbacks.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), published this policy statement on March 13, 2021. According to the policy statement, male newborns should not have their circumcisions performed unless it is necessary. This statement is based on traditional beliefs regarding hygiene and cleanliness. The organization states that the decision is also based in the belief that “Male babies have different capacities for controlling their bladders than women babies.” According to the AAP, circumcision is only necessary when there is a medical reason.
There is no clear consensus on advantages and disadvantages of neonatal genital surgery. Some doctors and groups opposing the procedure feel that it is dangerous. The American Academy of Pediatrics stated that the procedure is not medically necessary. The organization also believes that parents have the choice as to whether they want to circumform their baby. There are, however, many people who support the procedure and the decision to get it done.
