Circumcisions are most often performed in adults for a medical reason, such as a tight foreskin (phimosis) that no longer retracts for lack of flexibility. Phimosis is most often the result of inflammation or recurrent infections of the foreskin (balanitis). Diabetic patients frequently have this problem. The foreskin can also become whitish, thick and hard.
Circumcisions are also performed for a sexual reasons, especially in young men, since they might have pain during erection (without any obvious pathology). Some men also have hypersensitivity of the glans, which makes sexual activities rather unpleasant; they have difficulty retracting the foreskin completely.
Finally, circumcisions can be performed for personal, aesthetic or religious reasons.
