Micropenis - what is it?
A micropenis is a penis that measure less than 2.75 inches/ 7cm in length when erect. It happens if the level of the male hormone testosterone is too low when the baby is developing in the womb. Most men who are worried they have a micropenis and who see a doctor don’t actually have the condition.
Most often, it’s that the penis looks smaller than it really is because it’s hidden by fat around the genitals. In other cases, if a boy has not reached puberty just yet, his penis may appear smaller compared to his body size. This is not something to worry about, because once puberty starts, the penis will also grow in length and width.
