Is there any change in sensitivity after circumcision ?

My recent vacation to the USA revealed that a large percentage of men are circumcised, I am uncircumcised. Why are so many men there circumcised? Should I get circumcised? Is there any change in sensitivity after circumcision ?

It is not necessary that all men have to be circumcised. Jews and muslims practice it. In USA, incidence of penile cancer is more, due to early sexual activity and repeated HPV and HSV infections. REmoving foreskin of penis as it is done in circumcision, leads to reduced episodes. May be thats the reason why there they are more into circumcision.
