    MALE CIRCUMCISION Circumcision is basically the removal of the foreskin of a male child or an adult male. “It has been reported that approximately one third of the global male population is circumcised. Male circumcision is generally practiced for religious reasons, all over the world except in the USA where it is performed for nonreligious reasons”.
