Penile cancer is rare. Penile cancers appear predominantly in
non-circumcised men. In addition, the majority of penile cancers are
associated with human papillomavirus infection. The present manuscript
is concerned with the value of circumcision and HPV vaccination in the
prevention of penile cancer.

This German study confirms what has long been know about the association between circumcision and a lower risk of penile cancer. Read up and gain knowledge in this regard @: CIRCS.ORG
