Circumcision Might Help Protect Against Prostate Cancer
Circumcised men appear to have a slightly lower risk for prostate cancer than uncircumcised men, according to a case-control study in Cancer.
The study included roughly 1750 men with prostate cancer and 1650 unaffected controls. After adjustment for confounders such as family history of prostate cancer and personal history of prostatitis, men who reported being circumcised before they first had intercourse were significantly less likely to have prostate cancer, compared with those who hadn't been circumcised or who'd been circumcised after first intercourse (odds ratio, 0.85).
Noting that circumcision has been shown to lower the risk for sexually transmitted infections, the researchers write that their findings "are consistent with research showing that an infectious/inflammatory pathway may be involved in prostate carcinogenesis."
