The surgical removal of the foreskin of the penis is called CIRCUMCISION. It is commonly done for a condition called Phimosis wherein the foreskin cannot be properly retracted on to the glans( red part ). It is best to perform the operation within the first 2 to 3 weeks after birth(Congenital Phimosis), as it can become more complicated at an older age. Circumcised men may also be at lower risk for penile cancer, although the disease is rare in both circumcised and uncircumcised males. Circumcision is one treatment for balanitis or Balanoposthitis. There are claims that circumcision either lessens or heightens the sensitivity of the tip of the penis, decreasing or increasing sexual pleasure later in life but there are no documented evidences for either. It carries less severe risks - as does any surgical procedure. The most frequent are minor bleeding and local infection, both of which can be easily treated. The person can resume normal activities within a day as it is a day care surgery in most settings. The sex can be resumed after a month. Post circumcision you would need to consult the doctor if any of these are seen persistent bleeding, redness around the tip of the penis that gets worse after 3 days, fever, pus-filled blisters, not urinating normally within 6 to 8 hours after the circumcision. The cost of the procedure would range from Rs. 7000/- to Rs 8000/- INR. It has variations depending on the surgeon and the hospital settings.
