Why Do People Think Small Hands In A Man Are A Joke
Because they. ..: Associate it with the size of his penis. Don't believe it.
I have very small hands and thin wrists for a man. My 12 year old cousins have same sized hands as mine. What is my case?
Genetics: The size of our bones is largely determined by out genetics. If small hands is something that runs in your family then it is not surprising that you would have this. Remember it is not the size of your hands that is important but how you use them that counts. Be healthy.
Maybe, maybe not: This can be a simple variation fro the normal based on complex genetic factors. It can also be a feature of in excess of 40 named syndromes or associations listed in "smith's recognizable patterns of human malformation" 7ed.2013.
It depends: Small hands can run in your family (check your parents and siblings) and be perfectly functional. Sometimes, small hand or fingers can be part of a syndrome or congenital hand difference. It's best to be evaluated by a hand specialist, especially if it's a child, if there is a concern.
No syndrome: There are no syndromes known to me where the only finding is one of small hands. I would ask your doctor to look you over closely for any other anatomic findings out of the norm. If you have no other findings on exam, then you have small hands and that's it. That can certainly happen and would be totally normal! !
No: Though your profile says you are 37, females stop growing taller when they are 14 and males stop when they are 16.See 1 more doctor answer
What is says: Hands that are smaller than expected for a person's age and size
Nothing: If your hands are functionally normal. I wouldn't recommend anything.
Compare: Aside from comparing your hand size to a large number of others in the age group you are analyzing, there is likely no statistically significant information available to answer your question.See 1 more doctor answer
None: This is a common phenomenon in most cases.See 1 more doctor answer
Perhaps congenital: If they are truly smaller than small, my guess would be that something went wrong during the development of the hands in utero, which makes it congenital rather than hereditary.
Many things: There are many conditions that have relatively small hands. If the ears are really large and the hands are really small, I suggest a geneticist for evaluation. They should be able to determine if it is part of a syndrome.
