Circumcision- What is Circumcision?

Male circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin. The foreskin is the fold of skin covering the end of the penis, which can be gently pulled back.

Circumcision may be performed for:

  • religious reasons – circumcision is a common practice in the Jewish and Islamic faiths
  • medical reasons, although alternative treatments are usually preferred to circumcision

This article focuses on the medical aspects of circumcision.
