Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin, the skin and soft tissue covering the head of the penis (glans). It dates back in antiquity reflecting religious and cultural practices. Today, it’s accepted that circumcision has health benefits.
Boys shouldn’t swim or take a bath for at least a week after the procedure. They should avoid strenuous activities such as bike riding and sports for at least 4-6 weeks.
Adults can start being active by walking, going a little longer each day, but should wait 4 to 6 weeks to get back to activities like swimming and gym activities
Call the medical center right away if you notice:
- Any problems passing urine
- Profuse bleeding
- Foul smelling discharge
What to expect during circumcision
During a circumcision, under regional anaethesia, the foreskin is freed from the head of the penis and the excess foreskin is removed. We use a bipolar diathermy (sort of “laser”) so that there will be no or minimal chance of bleeding.
The procedure generally takes round 30-45minutes and the stitches should be fully absorbed within 7-10days. The circumcision generally heals in 10-14 days.
- Reduced risk of urinary tract infections and sexually transmitted diseases in men
- Protection against penile cancer and a lower risk of cervical cancer in female sex partners
- Prevention of inflammation of the penile head (glans) or balanitis and inflammation of the foreskin balanoposthitis
- Prevention of narrowing of the opening of the foreskin (phimosis/paraphimosis)
Circumcision also makes it easier to keep the end of the penis clean.
Like any other surgical procedure, there are risks in getting circumcision. But this risk is low. Problems linked to circumcision include:
- Risk of bleeding and infection at the site of the circumcision
- Irritation of the glans
- Higher chance of meatitis inflammation of the opening of the penis)
- Risk of injury to the penis

Skin lumps and bumps can be due to a variety of causes, including both benign and malignant lesions. Benign causes include warts, cysts, moles, sebaceous cysts and lipoma. Malignant lesions include melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma.
The first step is to establish a diagnosis. This can be done in many cases by simple examination, and in other cases, a biopsy, shaving or sample of the tissue in question is required for microscopic examination to determine the diagnosis.
Depending on the diagnosis, cosmetic appearance, and patient preference, the lesion may be removed by surgical excision or shaved down with radiowave (radiofrequency) surgery or laser. Surgical excision in itself can be a means of obtaining a definitive diagnosis of the pathology.
Surgical excision has been the traditional method of removing such lesions. The main advantage of this method is that it removes the lesion in its entirety, including any part of the lesion that lies below the skin surface. The procedure is done in the clinic under local anaesthesia or field block and you can go home the same day. To decrease the possibility of complications, we use a meticulous technique and diathermy. However, the main disadvantage of surgical excision is that it leaves a scar behind on the skin.
In our clinic , you will be assessed by our general surgeon who will schedule you at a time that will suit your needs. You will have a set of written instructions including wound care and you will follow up in 10-14 days. This is to examine the progress of wound healing and to check the histopathology.
We provide comprehensive vaccination services. Childhood vaccines are provided free by the Department of Health. Some adult vaccines are also for free to high risk groups eg. Flu vaccine, Pneumococcal vaccine for over 65’s
Travel and other vaccines are available by prescription. Please purchase vaccines immediately prior to your appointment and give to reception when you arrive. We will place them in the fridge to preserve their integrity.
We firmly believe in preventative medicine and so to that end we have a number of reminder programs in place. If you wish, you can be included in these according to your needs. These recall programs include immunisation and pap smear testing. We also participate in State and Federal reminder systems as appropriate.
