What is referred to as Circumcision?


Circumcision is referred to as foreskin removal, which is the covering of the glans (head) of the penis. Usually, neonates receive circumcision shortly after birth. Circumcision began as a religious rite. Today, people get circumcised for religious, medical, and cultural reasons. Most boys get circumcised when they are about a week old. Adults can also get circumcised, though it doesn't happen as often.
