Can't Find What You're Looking For?

Male circumcision is the surgical removal of some or all of the foreskin (or prepuce) from the penis.

Complication rates depend on the type of study, setting, person operating, patient age, and surgical technique or instrument used.

The most common complications are minor bleeding and local infection.

In large studies of infant circumcision in the US, complications rates range from 0.2-2.0%.

The most commonly reported complications: pain, swelling, haematoma, bleeding. Damage to the penis, delayed wound healing, and problems with appearance are less common.
