The objective of this research was to do a broad review and analysis of the medical literature related to male genital cutting (MGC) and female genital cutting (FGC), often referred to as “circumcision.” MGC and FGC are extremely prevalent today in many countries and as a result have affected individuals and societies. I found a wealth of medical literature and books available that offered opinions and facts regarding MGC and FGC. Health care disparities globally also reveal how genital cutting is viewed. Lastly, MGC and FGC are often understood as unnecessary surgeries that are wasteful of medical resources.
