What Is The Cause Of An Abnormal Large Clitoris
Possibly normal: Great varuiation in normal clitoris size from tiny nubbin to about 1/2size of normal pinky finger. Markedly enlared clitoris is seen in in females with adrenogenital syndrome, in which case the clitoris can be confused with a penis and even the vagina is sealed.

Genetics, hormones: Or arousal. Some people are tall ; others short, same with size of clitoris. Arousal makes blood filled corpora (rods) erect ; thus large. Girls born with adrenal cortical hyperplasia can be born with a very large clitoris which can initially present as an ambiguous genitalia problem. Women who develop an androgen (testosterone-like) secreting tumor can experience clitoral enlargement. ...Read more

Vascular engorgement: Vascular engorgement is part of the normal sexual arousal. If you have a varicose vein in the area from weight lifting, pregnancy, or such, it too will become engorged and may take longer to return to normal after the sexual excitement ends. If this is a problem, a vein specialist who works on varicose veins could be of help. ...Read more
Lots of options: The clitoris can become swollen and inflamed from an infection, allergic reaction, rough sexual play etc. Unless it develops an abscess the clitoris does not make a discharge. It may be covered with a vaginal discharge. If you have a persistent discharge that is not normal for you, it is time for an exam, call your family doctor! ...Read more

If in doubt, get things checked out by your doc. ...Read more

It also contains very sensitive nerve endings making it more sensitive to irritation or injury. If the irritation continues I would have it looked at by a doctor/ ob/gyn ...Read more
No it isn't: There is great variability in size of clitoris as there is with penis size in men. There are some medical conditions where clitoris is abnormal as in congenital adrenal hyperplasia. It is possible for clitoris to enlarge if a woman develops an ovarian or an adrenal tum or which secretes androgenic hormone (similar to testosterone). But an enlarged clitoris, by itself, is not a disease. ...Read more

Might be of concern if an intimate partner objects to it or if it sticks out and is noticeable if you are dancing or physically close to someone. Only of concern in rare case of recent enlargement due to a hormone secreting tumor of ovary or adrenal gland. ...Read more
