Parents that want to circumcise their sons for prophylactic reasons are allowed since the circumcision law to do so.
The benefits of infant circumcision include prevention of urinary tract infections (a cause of renal scarring),
reduction in risk of inflammatory foreskin conditions such as balanitis, foreskin injuries, phimosis and paraphimosis.

The risk of cervical cancer in his female partner(s) is also reduced.
