Most men don’t remember their circumcision if they’re circumcised at all. Circumcision is the process of cutting the foreskin, the skin that covers the tip of the penis, and removing it. Over 60 percent of men in the United States are circumcised. While it’s relatively rare for babies born in Europe, Africa, South America, Canada and parts of Asia, it is seen as a cultural norm here in the U.S. Normally, circumcisions are performed on newborn babies before they leave the hospital but in some cases, a circumcision is needed for adult men. Usually, if there’s an infection or another issue with the foreskin itself.
