Circumcision Prostate Cancer

Circumcision Prostate Cancer, Men who are circumcised may have a lower risk of developing prostate cancer, a new study finds.

Researchers at the University of Washington surveyed 1,754 men with prostate cancer, and 1,645 similar men who did not have the disease.

They found that those who had been circumcised before they first had sexual intercourse were 15 percent less likely to have prostate cancer.

“These data suggest a biologically plausible mechanism through which circumcision may decrease the risk of prostate cancer,” said study researcher Dr. Jonathan Wright, an assistant professor of urology at the University of Washington School of Medicine. He noted that the study was observational; it did not show a cause-and-effect link.
