A new study has revealed that men who are circumcised after the age of 35 are 45 percent less at risk of developing prostate cancer later in life.


The study by University of Montreal and the INRS-Institut-Armand-Frappier found that found that who were circumcised were 11percent less likely to later develop a prostate cancer compared to those who weren't.

Marie-Elise Parent said that this proportion reflects what has been shown in other studies.

The study also found that babies who were circumcised before the age of one were 14 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer and the removal of the foreskin at a young age provides protection, over the long term, against the most aggressive forms of cancer.

Parent added that unlike the skin that covers human bodies, the inner surface of the foreskin is composed of mostly non-keratinized mucosal epithelium, which is more easily penetrated by microbes that cause infections.
