In brief: Your Pediatrician

Whether a child is precocious or not is best determined by your pediatrician, who will refer you to a pediatric endocrinologist if he belives that is the case.

In brief: Primary Doctor First

Your child's primary care provider should be able to determine if your child needs further work-up.
Precocious sexual development is when girls start breast or pubic hair growth before age 8 and for boys with pubic hair or genital enlargement prior to 9 years- old. If there remain concerns or questions, please see a pediatric endocrinologist.
