Why Is Circumcision Done?

Circumcision is generally carried out for either medical or non-medical reasons. 

Medical indications:

  • A tight foreskin that cannot be pulled back/retracted (phimosis). It is usually caused by a bacterial/fungal infection or high blood sugar levels due to diabetes.
  • Recurrent balanitis (a condition where the glans of the penis is red, sore, and swollen). A condition called balanitis xerotica obliterans further leads to phimosis. In a few scenarios, balanitis xerotica obliterans can also cause the head of the penis to become inflamed and scarred.
  • Inflammation of the prepuce causes pain and swelling of the foreskin of the penis (balanoposthitis).
  • A condition in which the prepuce of your penis can be retracted (pulled back) but cannot be moved back to its original position (paraphimosis). This condition causes the head of the penis to become tender and swollen.
  • A reddish patch, ulcer, or growth is seen on the tip of the penis or below the prepuce (cancer of the penis).

In such medical conditions, your surgeon will only recommend circumcision if other treatments do not work.

Non-medical indications:

Circumcision is done in newborn or older children as a part of religious practices in the Jewish, African, and Islamic communities. In such a case, your surgeon makes sure that you know the risks and complications associated with circumcision.

 

Circumcision is not recommended in a newborn in the following circumstances:

  • The age of the newborn is less than 12-24 hours
  • Presence of an illness that requires monitoring by the healthcare staff
  • Bleeding disorder (haemophilia and thrombocytopenia) or skin disorders that can affect normal healing
  • Hypospadias (urethral opening is on the underside of the penis)
  • When the penis is twisted (chordee)
  • Abnormal development of the penis (penile torsion)
  • Webbed penis
  • When the penis is of normal size but is hidden under the skin of the abdomen, scrotum (a sac behind the penis that holds the male reproductive organs), or thigh (buried penis)
  • When the passage through which urine passes through the body is underdeveloped (urethral hypoplasia)
  • A rare birth defect called epispadias is located at the opening of the urethra (a passage through which urine is passed to the exterior of our body), in which urine is removed by the body not from the urethra but from an abnormal location.      

When to See a Doctor?

Cultural practices:

  • Some cultures practise circumcision as a tradition, although it is not required.
  • If you are pregnant and wish to get your baby circumcised, you can visit your urologist before your baby is born.
  • You should discuss with your urologist in advance as circumcision is carried out within 24-48 hours after birth.

Medical conditions: You should visit your doctor if you or your child have any of the following problems:

  • A tight foreskin, which is difficult to pull back from the head of your penis
  • Swollen penis
  • Unable to return the foreskin to its original place after pulling back
  • A red patch or ulcer on the foreskin

Your doctor will examine your penis and check if you need circumcision. 

What to Expect If You Delay Surgery?

For non-medical reasons, delayed circumcision does not have any negative consequences. However, in case of medical reasons, delayed circumcision can lead to progression of the underlying conditions, like:

  • Untreated balanitis can lead to chronic (extended) inflammation (redness, soreness, and pain).
  • Similarly, long-standing phimosis can lead to permanent scarring, causing the constriction of your foreskin. It may also lead to dyspareunia (painful intercourse) in patients with diabetes.
