Could you tell me what are all symptoms of puberty for a boy?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Samuel Freedman
8 years experience in Pediatrics
Puberty: The primary sign is testicular enlargement. Boys can act moody and aggressive. They can be growing quickly. Pubic and axillary hair, body odor, acne, oily skin, are secondary signs. Body hair and facial hair may show up later. Voice changes are evident as well. A "wet dream" may occur in the first year after puberty onset.
