Wtf I’ve heard this before but wtf

Circumcision does not protect boys from penile problems infact it can cause them…. Link below range from Penile amputation to meatal stenosis

Total ablation of the penis after circumcision with electrocautery: a method of management and long-term followup.

Reconstruction of the penis after necrosis due to circumcision

Surgical management of penile amputation in children

20-year experience with iatrogenic penile injury.

Incidence of asymptomatic meatal stenosis in children following neonatal circumcision.

Post circumcision meatal stenosis: 12 years’ experience

CONCLUSION: Meatal stenosis is an under recognised complication of circumcision done in neonatal and nappy aged boys. Symptomatic presentation from meatal stenosis can be very late.


Neonatal circumcision and penile inflammation in young boys.

The study found that rather than protecting against penile inflammation, neonatal circumcision increases the risk of penile inflammation, particularly in boys younger than 3 years old.


Variability in penile appearance and penile findings: a prospective study.

CONCLUSIONS: There are significant variations of appearance in circumcised boys; clinical findings are much more common in these boys than previously reported in retrospective studies. The circumcised penis requires more care than the intact penis during the first 3 years of life. Parents should be instructed to retract and clean any skin covering the glans in circumcised boys, to prevent adhesions forming and debris from accumulating. Penile inflammation (balanitis) may be more common in circumcised boys; preputial stenosis (phimosis) affects circumcised and intact boys with equal frequency. The revision of circumcision for purely cosmetic reasons should be discouraged on both medical and ethical grounds.


Is neonatal circumcision judicious?

CONCLUSIONS: From our study, circumcision at 5 months results in significantly fewer serious complications than circumcision in the neonatal period, irrespective of the method used. Therefore, neonatal circumcision should not be recommended.
