They used numbing stuff on my ds too. I didn't really want him circed, but dh did. He quoted the penile.cancer and uti stuff. He is in the medical field and so was really for it (even though my ob wasn't set on it and the aap says it isn't necessary). It was actually one of 2 arguments we've had in our 7 years of marriage. Thankfully, all went well and everything is in good working order.
