    'Circumcision caused my son’s suicide'
    Why did a young man kill himself two years after being circumcised?

    If surgery is ever warranted for phimosis, as a last resort, there are procedures available to minimize any removal of skin. Obviously the doctor here didn't consider that, considering there was mention of a frenulum scar. I'd say this would be well worth an investigation into malpractice, even if the outcome hadn't been so terrible.

    I've seen others online, here and at other sites, who were seriously troubled about having been circumcised. For anybody with chronic depression, or other conditions such as OCD, any trauma like this is something not to be ignored,

      What a tragic story. He had adult circumcision due to phimosis dramatically worse than I did.

      I 'only' had the exposed glans issue really bad while he had many other major complications on top of that and complete removal of his frenelum.

      All it would have taken to cure phimosis was simply stretching.
