Experience These 8 Conditions, Men Should Be Circumcised

, – Circumcision is a surgical procedure performed with the aim of removing the outer skin of the penis that covers the head of the penis. This is commonly done by men in any part of the world for health reasons. In general, the circumcision procedure will provide benefits, such as:

  • Reducing the risk of urinary tract infections.

  • Cleaning the penis made easier.

  • Reducing the risk of penile cancer and cervical cancer in couples.

  • Reducing the risk of sexually transmitted infections.

5 Facts About Circumcision You Need to Know

Not only that, this surgical procedure must even be done if a man has a disease that requires circumcision. Here are 8 diseases in question:

  1. Balanitis, which is inflammation that occurs in the head of the penis. People with balanitis will experience swelling and pain in the head of the penis. This is more common in men who are not circumcised.

  2. Phimosis, which is a disorder experienced by men who have not been circumcised. The sufferer will experience a narrowing of the foreskin of the penis, so that it cannot be pulled back over the head of the penis.

  3. Condyloma acuminata, which is a genital skin disease that usually occurs due to sexually transmitted infections. This disease usually occurs around the vagina, penis, or rectum.

  4. Paraphimosis , which is a condition that occurs when the foreskin cannot be pulled up to the head of the penis. This will cause the foreskin swelling of the penis, because the blood circulation in the penis is not smooth.

  5. Epispadia, which is a disorder that occurs when the urethral opening is not located at the tip of the penis, but on the upper side of the penis. This happens because the formation of the genital organs is not perfect when entering the 5th week of pregnancy.

  6. Squamous cell carcinoma , which is skin cancer that attacks the squamous cells, the cells that make up the middle and outer layers of the skin. This disease will be characterized by the appearance of lumps or reddish spots on the skin.

  7. Palmatus penis, a condition known as a webbed penis. This condition usually occurs after performing a circumcision procedure or other operation on the penis. In addition, penile palmatus can also occur due to excessive cutting of the skin on the penis.

  8. Megalourethra, which is a condition that occurs when there is non-obstructive dilation of the urethra which usually occurs due to abnormal development in the fetus.

This is the difference between circumcised men and not from a health standpoint

Circumcision performed will not affect fertility or reduce male sexual pleasure. However, there are some people who must be careful when they want to undergo this procedure, namely babies with premature births, men with penile deformities, men with small penises, someone with multiple sex disorders, and someone with blood clotting disorders.

Recognize the Benefits of Circumcision from the Health Side

If you experience a series of these things, it is better to first discuss with a specialist in the application before performing the circumcision procedure. Circumcision will have a series of risks that will be experienced, such as penile pain, irritation of the head of the penis, increasing the risk of inflammation of the urinary opening, bleeding, injury to the penis, reduced sensitivity to the head of the penis, and crusting due to injuries.

Although circumcision procedures rarely cause complications, but the people mentioned above have an indication for experiencing a series of risks after surgery. So, first discuss what is allowed and what is not, so that the risks accepted do not endanger your health.
