There is some evidence that circumcision has health benefits, including:

A decreased risk of urinary tract infections.
A reduced risk of sexually transmitted diseases in men.
Protection against penile cancer and a reduced risk of cervical cancer in female sex partners.
Prevention of balanitis (inflammation of the glans) and balanoposthitis (inflammation of the glans and foreskin).
Prevention of phimosis (the inability to retract the foreskin) and paraphimosis (the inability to return the foreskin to its original location).

The advantages of being circumcised are -

1) - No cancer of the penis. Although it's not that common,they have to chop it all off if you get one ! So, OK, you get the "stump of the year award" but that's not much compensation.

2) - 60% protection against AIDS infection during heterosexual unprotected sex ( = no condom). This is a proven medical fact and it will become even clearer in future research.

3) - No 'itching',rashes, infections, or inflammations under the foreskin. These are extremely common in uncircumcised men.
it causes them to grab their penis and squeeze the foreskin and glans just to get some relief !

4) - No really bad smells coming from the stale sweat mixed with urine that has accumulated under the foreskin. Every drop of urine that 'leaks' out after 'taking a leak' just means you have to use a lot of cologne if you work in an office ! ...more

Circumcision is unnecessary except in case d skin is not retracting. It puts d man into more health risks.
