U.S. researchers found there is little evidence to support the claim that circumcision protects men from getting the AIDS virus during sex with other men. Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reviewed 15 studies involving 53,567 gay and bisexual men in the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia, India, Taiwan, Peru and the Netherlands and found no benefit for those who were circumcised. Circumcised men were 14 percent less likely to be infected with the human...

By JEREMY COX Eight surgeries. Four months of radiation. And now, six months of chemotherapy. Welcome to Richard Cappadona's life during the past year. The Mandarin father of three was diagnosed last October with cancer of the spermatic cord. The cord runs from the abdomen to the testicle. Because it's such a rare form of cancer, his doctors "don't really know how to treat it, and they're just doing the best that they can," said Cappadona's wife, Cynthia. Facing soaring treatment...

British scientists warn male painters exposed to glycol ethers they may be more likely to have poor semen quality. Researchers at the Universities of Sheffield and Manchester in England found men exposed to glycol either -- found in many products including water-based paints -- have a two-point-five-fold increased chance of having a low motile, or moving, sperm count. Motile sperm move spontaneously and independently. Motility is an important factor in the fertility of men and the...

By Amanda Beck WASHINGTON -- Doctors are more likely to use anesthesia in newborn circumcisions than they were eight years ago, researchers reported on Thursday. And a second study found that letting babies nurse during other painful procedures might help ease their discomfort. At one time, doctors believed that infants were too young to experience the pain of circumcision or did not remember it, but more recent medical research has shown that babies are no different than adults in this...

By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Correspondent WASHINGTON -- Circumcising men routinely across Africa could prevent millions of deaths from AIDS, World Health Organization researchers and colleagues reported on Monday. They analyzed data from trials that showed men who had been circumcised had a significantly lower risk of infection with the AIDS virus, and calculated that if all men were circumcised over the next 10 years, some two million new infections and around 300,000 deaths could be...

By Rebecca Harrison MBABANE (Reuters) - It's not every day that hordes of men fight to forego their foreskins -- especially not in a country where circumcision was banned by a 19th century king. But in the tiny African kingdom of Swaziland, circumcision is making a comeback after research showed the age-old rite may help stop the spread of HIV. Volunteers eager for the snip almost rioted at an overbooked clinic in the capital last month. "There was a stampede," said Dr. Mark Mills,...

By Maggie Fox, Health and Science Correspondent DENVER (Reuters) - Male circumcision, which has been shown to protect men from infection with the AIDS virus, appears to protect women, too, U.S. and Ugandan researchers reported on Wednesday. Circumcising men reduced infections in their female partners by 30 percent, the researchers found. One said the difference may be related to the structure of the foreskin, which is removed in circumcision. In the study of more than 300 Ugandan...

The testicles are the male reproductive organs that serve as a part of both the nervous and reproductive systems, acting as the ovaries’ counterpart.
