Hello I meant should we circumcize him, because I heard that he will have better hygiene in the future. What are the benefits if any?
Expert:  Norman M. replied 2 years ago.
There are potential benefits to male circumcision, and these include easier personal hygiene, a reduction (in later life) of urinary tract infections, a lowered risk of penile ot prostate cancer. If it is to be done it appears that it is best done in the first ten days after birth.

That said, none of the major healthcare authoriries in the US, UK, Australia, Holland and Canada recommend circumcision as a routine procedure.

There are other implications. Some peole say that circumcision is a forced , un-necessary intervention on a person who has not been able to make a decison for themselves about it, and that it should be l3eft until lkater lifen so that the person can make a choice himself.

Additionally, some men develop psychological problems in later life resulting from early circumcision.

It is a difficult choice, but these are the factors you have to consider.
