Generally, boys are born with a hood of skin, called the foreskin, covering the head of the male private part. In circumcision, the foreskin is surgically removed.
The circumcision process is quite common in newborn boys in some parts of the world, while some parents wait until the boys have grown up before they undergo circumcision.

Various Benefits of circumcision procedure involve:
It is essential for health purposes. In some instances, there is a medical need for circumcision while others need it for hygienic purposes.
Circumcision also prevents other problems such as penile cancer which is rare among circumcised and uncircumcised males, wherein the foreskin is difficult to retract, leading to inflammation of the penile head.
It also reduces the risk of infections in the urinary tract, which is common in men who don't undergo this procedure.
For some families, circumcision is a religious ritual and it can also be a matter of family tradition.
Circumcision makes it simpler to wash the male private part.
The risks of not being circumcised, however, are not only rare but avoidable with proper care.
Circumcision might not be an option if certain blood-clotting disorders are present. Also, circumcision might not be appropriate for premature babies who still require medical care in the hospital nursery or for babies born with abnormalities.
