Hold Up! Circumcision May Cut Prostate Cancer Risk!

| Filed under: HealthScience!Cancer

Circumcision

Are you vehemently against circumcision?

Well, probably nothing we say will sway you — but you should totally hold up and think about it for a second.

According to a new study, circumcision might lower prostate cancer risk!

Here's what it says:

'A new analysis of 3,399 men found that those who were circumcised before their first sexual encounter saw a "significant" 15 percent decreased risk of developing prostate cancer compared with men who were uncircumcised or circumcised after the first time they had sex.'

Is 15% enough to sway you??

We'd say any chance that you can avoid cancer is probably a good one, yet not enough is known yet to just start blindly chopping.

And here's what the doctors are saying:

"This observation is consistent with accumulating evidence that infection [and] inflammation in the prostate may play a role in the development of this disease. Our study tested the hypothesis that men who are circumcised prior to becoming sexually active may be at reduced risk of prostate cancer. This follows upon the assumption that circumcision may reduce infection [and] inflammation in the prostate by reducing exposure to infectious agents that gain access to prostate tissue where they induce an inflammatory response."

Honestly, there are arguments for and against — and we don't see this as a definitive reason yet.

Bring more studies!
