Circumcision May Lower Urinary Infection Risk

Uncircumcised boys areِ at a higher risk forِ urinary tract infections compared withِ circumcised boys, a newِ study finds.
In theِ newِ study, theِ researchers hypothesized thatِ someِ uncircumcised boys wouldِ haveِ a higher risk ofِ infection thanِ others, depending onِ normal variations ofِ the male anatomy.
Uncircumcised boys withِ a nonvisible orِ partially visible urethra opening wouldِ haveِ a higher risk ofِ urinary tract infection thanِ uncircumcised boys withِ a completely visible urethra opening, theyِ suggested.
