My son was wondering when his penis would grow larger and he's thirteen?

Puberty: Boys tend to enter puberty about age 11 and 1/2 to 12 years. Puberty could start at age 13 in some boys. The first sign of puberty in a boy is enlargement of the testicles. In the next stage of puberty there is growth of the penis and growth in height. About two years after the start of puberty growth increases greatly. So it all depends when the boy starts puberty. ...Read more

How big should a 13 year olds penis be? My son is worried and I honestly don't know? He says it's around 5-6 inches

He's fine: The average erect adult is 4.5 inches, so even if he's exaggerating, I wouldn't worry about it. You might ask him if he is watching porn, where the males are enlisted for the size of their equipment. ...Read more

Hi my son turned 6 in July and is a big lad for his age. At what age should the penis grow through the foreskin. We never want to force it back! ?

Show his doctor: This is an issue that your child’s doctor should have handled with you when your son was an infant. It is very common for the skin to become adherent to the head of the penis. You should have been instructed to regularly retract this skin and clean. This is to keep a build up of material from forming around the head of the penis (smegma) and to prevent adherence. Show the doctor next visit. ...Read more

My son is 14 and a half years old and has a 7 inch penis. Will it grow longer? I personally would be happy of it did.

My son is 14 and a half years old and has a 7 inch penis. Will it grow longer? I personally would be happy of it did.

A good length...: A 7-inch long penis is at the high end of "normal" which should serve him well in mating and voiding. In fact, physical growth comes to halt soon reaching adulthood which is roughly at 18 for men. After that, all men have to adopt & adapt to whatever life might have brought to them. So, he is well and sound, and don't make any hint to his penis but reassure and support him for unfolding better... ...Read more

My 16 year son has a penis about 2 inches when not erect and about 5 inches when erect. Why is it 2inches?? & will it grow?? What should I tell him?

Grow vs show: Understand that one primary difference in penile presentation is the difference in how much they expand during sexual stimulation. There is likely some advantage to both, ie storage size vs use size. Some with larger size at rest and don't expand as much. Since he is basically normal you can tell him he is. Also ask him not to compare himself to porno guys he may see. (hired for size) ...Read more

My son is 14 years old and he is worrying about his penis size (13.4cm). how much long should a 14 year old teen's penis size? .

Long enough.: Penis really does not need to be very long to serve it's purpose. There is a lot of variation in size at around that age. 13 cm is long enough. As long as he has developed normally in other ways - muscle mass, body shape, deepening of voice, enlargement of testicles, I would not worry. ...Read more

My son (I'm his father) is 15 yrs old his penis girth is a little under 4.7" around is he small average or big for his age?

Apparently average: According to Wikipedia, the average penile girth when erect is 4.8 inches. However, that varies widely depending on where it is measured, how much erection, and who is doing the measuring!

The best thing you can do for your son is to remind him that he is NORMAL, just the way he is. Being happy and healthy is more important than size of penis, height, color of eyes or any other feature. ...Read more

I have a 13 year old son he told me he got some white liquid from his penis I found out its semen is it normal for him or dangerous??

Normal: The kid may be unaware of the changes that are occurring but puberty has found him. Testicular enlargement is one of the first features of male puberty, and semen formation follows. Some males note this change when they awake with early morning discharges called "nocturnal emissions". ...Read more

Is my 15 yr old sons penis girth to thin? He's worried that he's not growing right. It's about 5" around an average of 4.75. He wants to know if it's small average or big for TEENS HIS AGE.

Here are some. ..: Your son's penile girth is within reasonable range of the average and he still has a room to grow over next 3 years because physical growth of the body will come to a halt after marching into adulthood. For men, that age is around 18. So, I would not worry about penile growth at all. Meanwhile, educate him that physical growth is predetermined by genetic factor already and nothing could be done. ...Read more

My son is 13. he has a bush down below, very little pit hair, and only a 1.5 inch penis soft and a 3 inch when erect. Is his normal or should I contac?

Penis size: Your son by description is in mid puberty. We use something called Tanner stages to assess phase of puberty. Tanner stages look at body hair in armpits and genital area. Also look at size of testicles. Your son's penis is normal in size for mid puberty. Would be helpful to have him seen by his pediatrician for confirmation and reassurance. ...Read more

Child's penis and testicle not growing? My son is 9 years old and large for his age (in height and weight) but I am concerned bc it seems as if his penis and testicles are not growing. I realize that he has not hit puberty yet, but they seem unusually sma

Child's penis and testicle not growing? My son is 9 years old and large for his age (in height and weight) but I am concerned bc it seems as if his penis and testicles are not growing. I realize that he has not hit puberty yet, but they seem unusually sma

It: It is not unusual for a child's penis and testicles to appear smaller than "normal" at this age, especially if he is a large child (they can look relatively smaller). As long as the testicles are descended and palpably normal, there is no cause for alarm. As he goes through puberty in the next few years, he will hopefully thin out a bit, and the genitalia will also grow appropriately. That being said, sometimes a visit to a specialist can be reassuring to a child (and you!), since puberty might be a couple of years away. ...Read more

My 11 month old son has a very hard bump under the skin on the underside of the shaft of his penis. It's as big as 3 pinheads and hard like plastic.

My 11 month old son has a very hard bump under the skin on the underside of the shaft of his penis. It's as big as 3 pinheads and hard like plastic.

Bump on Penis: Common lumps on the penis can be from inclusion cysts and scarring from minor trauma (such as circumcison). The lump under the skin may also be either a sebaceous or inclusion cyst that was trapped under the skin by the circumcision. Almost all such lesions as you describe are harmless but if you want a more exact diagnosis, it is best to see a urologist. ...Read more
