Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer accounts for one-quarter of all new cancers in males and 7% of deaths [21]. Uncircumcised men have more than twice the incidence of prostate cancer compared with circumcised [16, 103, 287], and prostate cancer is rare amongst Jews [9]. No association has been seen between rate of prostate cancer and rate of cervical cancer in different geographic localities [297]. However, in a study of 20,243 men in Finland , infection with HPV18 was associated with a 2.6-fold increase in risk of prostate cancer (P < 0.005) [88]. For HPV16 the increased risk was 2.4-fold. This is similar to the increased penile HPV infection in uncircumcised men [60]. Ascending passage of the HPV to the prostate could be causative.

According to the American Cancer Society 1 in 6 men get prostate cancer during their lifetime. If uncircumcised men have double the risk, and assuming half of the men in the at-risk age group are uncircumcised, then risk in an uncircumcised man would be 1 in 4, and risk in a circumcised man would be 1 in 8 (i.e., circumcision prevents prostate cancer in 33% minus 11% = 22% of men). This means that in the USA the 2 million circumcisions performed each year prevent approx. 22% of 2M = 440,000 cases of prostate cancer over the average 76 year lifetime. Each case costs on average US$13,823 just for radiation therapy [136], meaning a total extra cost of US$6 billion. Add to this the combined cost for terminal care of the 41,000 who die of prostate cancer each year of $24,660 per patient [136] (= $1 billion), the overall annual cost is over US$7 billion. This compares with US$390 million per year in total for a high-end estimate of physician + hospital costs for a neonatal circumcision in the USA of $195 [365]. [These calculations were assisted by Jake Waskett, Joshua Amos and Tatsuo Bradio (unpublished).]




"I have had the occasion of working with Rabbi Boruch Mozes on urological surgery. Rabbi Mozes has impressed me with his professionalism and judgment."
Dr. Howard M. Snyder-a world renowned urological surgeon. Children’s Hospital Of Philadelphia
I am happy to confidently recommend Rabbi Boruch Mozes as an experienced and highly skilled mohel. Many families have been extremely satisfied with his services as a mohel. I wish him continued success.
Dr. Batya Wagner Pediatrician NY

As both a parent and a medical professional, I was extremely impressed with the Bris that Rabbi Boruch Mozes performed on my son. I have in the past and will continue to recommend him to all as an outstanding mohel.
Dr. Isaac Braverman Pediatrician NJ

When our third son was born on a Shabbos and the mohel that we had used for our previous two sons was going to Israel, I was concerned. Rabbi Mozes made the several hour trip to our community and spent Shabbos away from his family so that the bris could be performed on the proper day. He was highly qualified and his manner was reassuring. I would recommend Rabbi Mozes to any family desiring an experienced and skilled mohel for the circumcision of their son.
