If yes, it is important to determine if there are medical reasons. Is your penis less than 2 inches erect? If not, unlikely to be a micropenis. Either way, learning to love yourself as you are is important! ...Read more

Can a bad circumcision cause a micropenis? I believe it happened to my 9 yr old, he had a bad circumcision at birth, seems to be real small. Fixable?

Micropenis v trapped: Micropenis is very small both in length and width & not caused by circumcision. Trapped penis can result from excess shaft skin removed, glans will be of normal width & normal shaft can be felt from outside the skin. Boys with a trapped penis from suboptimal circumcision may have discomfort or pain with erection. Either way penises look small in overweight boys due to a thick prepubic fat pad. ...Read more
