Will a penile implant make my penis larger?

Diminished Size: By the nature of how an implant works, there is expected to be a decrease in length, though not substantial.

I want  penis enlargement surgery. or penis thickness. because my penis is thin. is penis enlargement surgery the only option i have? or usin HGH&pump

Surgery: i would guess tht surgery is your best option. HGH has side effects and won't help grow your penis unless you are an adolescent and then it grows everything. The pump wil give you an erection with what you are endowed with. You should discuss this with a urologist as you may not be satisfied with any of these options. You may want to discuss it first with patients who have had the surgery ...Read more

Unknown: There are many studies of penises and much work studying terns. However, I am unaware of any study of the terns' penises. Most birds do not have a penis. Most birds have a little lump called a cloaca. So it is unlikely a tern would get peyronies disease. ...Read more

How old are you?: If you haven't started puberty, but are younger than 14, please be assured that nature will more than likely take its course and put you through puberty. If older & no puberty, then you need to see your doctor. Penile length is mostly genetic. Often times a penis will appear small in an overweight boy because of the fat pad surrounding the base of it.

Had my surgery and removed stone have a stent and string out of penis its tied in knot to short what happens is i get a erection? Please help me

Ask urologist or ...: Leaving a thread attached to stent for self pulling-out is common; yet the length of thread is arbitrarily decided by urologist and occasionally it may be too short so restricting the "room" leading to discomfort for erection. If so, you may release the taping of the thread and let it go inside urethra for comfort. After erection and peeing, you will most likely see the thread reappear of pulling. ...Read more

See below: Generally, an erection will have no adverse effect on either the penis or the indwelling stent as there is enough redundant string within the bladder and penis to prevent the stent from inadvertently being pulled down/out or discomfort in the penis from the string being pulled too taut. Also, less likely to get an erection because of the discomfort often associated with having a stent in place. ...Read more
