I think it is a two part problem.
1) Is there such a thing as a male hymen?
That should be easy enough to answer. I believe circumcision is
primarily a practice of Jews and those who worship a jewish god
(Christians). There should be thousands, if not millions, of peoples
in the world who would have stories about male bleeding if it is a
widespread phenomenon.
2) If 1 is true was circimcision inviented to hide this?
I am reminded of the man who asked his wife why she cut the end of the
ham off before she cooked it. She said that she didn't know, that was
just the way her mother had done it. A few days later the man asked
his mother-in-law why she cut the end of the ham off before she cooked
it. She said she didn't know, that was the way HER mother had done it.
A few weeks later he asked the grandmother if she knew the answer to
his question and she smiled and said that it was the only way she
could fit it into the pan she had at the time.
How much of what we do is done by rote without knowing the why of it?
In your case, how are we to know the reasoning behind something that
was started thousands of years ago? Without the ability to travel, or
at least look, back in time we can never know the answer to some
questions. I think this is one of them.

Just my opinion,
