Is a circumcision painful?

A circumcision should not be a painful procedure, however this depends on the individual. It is more a dull ache than a sharp pain once the feeling returns. At the Cadogan Clinic, a circumcision is performed under day case surgery with general anaesthesia. This means you'll be unconscious throughout the procedure and won't feel any pain. 

You may experience some discomfort and swelling around the head of your penis for 3 - 4 days following the operation, however before leaving the clinic you will be painkilling medication to help manage this. You shouldn't feel any pain or discomfort while passing urine.
