Lower circumcision rates mean higher health costs in USA

In an article published in Archives of Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine (2012) the authors report that the rate of circumcision in newborn males had dropped from 79% in 1970s to 55% in 2010 in USA. For comparison, in UK there is a 16% circumcision rate and less than 2% in Denmark. This 20 year decline had already cost an estimated $20bn largely in the cost of treating added HIV infection, urinary tract infection in infants and adult HPV infection.
