Penis Size: So, first your penis is average or slightly longer than average. So, no problem there. Second, your foreskin should retract fully. If it does not retract easily you should see a urologist for this problem.

Please don't.: I'm not sure what you mean by "thin skin", exactly, but please don't try any surgical procedures on yourself. Talk to your doctor about any options, surgical or otherwise, that you might have.

I agree w Dr.: Eastern. Please don't consider doing home surgical procedures on yourself. Can you imagine how badly you will feel it you developed a severe complication. See an urologist if you are concerned that there is an abnormality with your penis.

While this doesn't sound serious it is curious. I've asked one of our urologists to respond but it could take a while so be patient.
