A 37-year-old member asked:

What is a micro- penis? What is its coronary artery disease link?

Dr. Simon Kimm
Urology 16 years experience
Unknown link: A microphallus is a stretched penile length two standard deviations below the mean in a population. It is usually seen in syndromes of abnormal hormonal or genital development. At times, these syndromes can be associated with heart defects. There is no clear link with coronary artery disease (CAD) described in the literature. A "buried penis" can be due to obesity, a risk factor of cad.
