Penile cancer is a rare disease which occurs in elderly men. It is the rarest of male cancers, occurring approximately in 1 in 100,000 men, A man is more likely to get breast cancer than he is to get penile cancer, and the greatest risk factor for it is smoking tobacco!! Even circumcised men get penile cancer and the most common site on the circumcised penis is the circumcision scar. Yet the incessant, misleading and unethical propaganda by Pro-Circumcision advocates would leave you to believe your baby is at risk if you dont have him circumcised! Your baby has a much greater chance of being wounded or experience a complication from circumcision (with average complications of infant circumcision being from 2 in 100 to 10 in 100) than he would ever get penile cancer as an elderly man.
Here is the Cancer Council of Australia's response to recent propaganda about circumcsision and cancer rates in Australia:
"Given the lack of evidence to support circumcision as a cancer control measure in Australia, in Cancer Council Australia’s view it is inappropriate to complicate the debate on circumcision by suggesting the procedure could contribute to reduced cancer burden in Australia."
