    Abstract:
    Male circumcision is a prevalent, straightforward procedure. Cultural, religious, and/or social factors are the main determinants in the decision to undergo circumcision. The method of circumcision and age of the patient at the time of circumcision varies, dependent on the deciding determinant: cultural or religious tradition, personal hygiene, preventive health, or medical need. While circumcision is a relatively simple operation for a trained medical professional with low rates of adverse events, the safety of the operation varies when performed by non-medically trained (traditional) practitioners. This review aims to inform physicians of international circumcision variations and associated complications and to provide history-taking considerations during the review of the genitourinary system. The review revealed a wide variety in 1) training of practitioners performing circumcisions, 2) methods of circumcision, and 3) sterility during the procedure contributing to differing rates of complications. Findings suggest circumcisions should not be viewed equally, and greater emphasis should be placed on genitourinary history, especially circumcision, with patients from areas where traditional circumcisions are prevalent.
