Be Aware Of The Risks Of Circumcision!

Be Aware Of The Risks Of Circumcision!Whether you're expecting a son or have just welcomed him into the world, you have an important decision to make before you take your son home: whether to circumcise him or not.

For some families, the choice is simple because it's based on cultural or religious beliefs. But for others, the right option isn't as clear. Before you make a circumcision decision, it's important to talk to your doctor and consider some of the issues. The choice of the doctor and hospital is very important and can avoid complications. Boys are born with a foreskin, covering the head of the penis. In circumcision, the foreskin is surgically removed, exposing the end of the penis. Parents who choose circumcision often do so based on religious beliefs, concerns about hygiene, or cultural or social reasons. Routine circumcision is usually performed during the first 10 days. It is very important that the surgery is done by a doctor who is experienced. The doctor should prepare the parents by telling them about the procedure he will use and the possible risks. Circumcision after the newborn period can be a more complicated procedure and usually requires general anaesthesia. The hygiene circumstances at the hospital have a great effect on the importance of the surgery. The most dramatic side effect could be the loos of the penis. Although circumcision appears to have some medical benefits, it also carries potential risks, as does any surgical procedure. These risks are small, but parents should be aware of both the possible advantages and the problems before they make their decision.
