A 31-year-old male asked:

do any penis enlargment pills/creams work?

No: There is no scientific proof that products that claim to increase penile length work. What they do, however, is that are very effective in extracting money from your wallet.
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
No: Many penis enlargement pills, creams, and magic potions are advertised, but they do not work. Almost every penis that can get a firm erection is big enough for the job (one can see a urologist if one has a rare case of an abnormally tiny penis). Occasionally, one or both partners have too much body fat, making certain positions of sexual activity seem difficult (weight loss helps in those cases).
Dr. Slade Suchecki
Family Medicine 18 years experience
Temporary effects: Most of these products have minimal and very temporary effects. They may actually cause skin issues if you or your partner have skin sensitivities. Also some otc pills/supplements can affect your blood pressure. If there are concerns for size consult your primary care provider or a urologist.
Dr. Foster Carr
General Practice 33 years experience
No: There have been no placebo controlled trials that have found any efficacy in the use of penile enlargement pills or creams.

A 21-year-old member asked:

What disorders affect the penis?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Moez Khorsandi
Urology 27 years experience
Many: Many disorders affect the penis including cancer, skin lesions including herpes, and genital warts. Lack of blood supply to the penis can cause penile gangene (usually from a condition called atrial fibrillation or peripheral vascualr disease). Blockage and scarring of the urethra may make it difficult to urinate. Of course erectile dysfunction may occur requiring medical or surgical treatment.

Depends: While results vary across studies, the consensus is that the mean human penis is approximately 12.9–15 CM (5.1–5.9 in) in length with a 95% confidence interval of (10.7 cm, 19.1 cm) (or, equivalently, 4.23 in, 7.53 in).
