Conditions with symptom: 'early puberty'
My six year old daughter has always been extremely hairy since birth she now seems to be developing early puberty. My mother fighting last stage adrenal cancer and I'm really concerned as every time i try to look up excessive hair growth and early puberty adrenal tumours are mentioned is there really a link between them?!
It may just be an early hormone gland but i would see a consultant,

hi im 13 and quite early in puberty, my penis is around 3-4 inches when flaccid and 5.5-6.0 iches when erect is this normal?
I am 18 and i get an erection easily. I dont know if thats because im going through puberty or what. But when i have sex with my girlfriend i ejaculate early. Will this go away in time or is there anything i can do about it without going to the doctors if possible.
Getting an erection 'easily' shouldn't ever be a problem. Ejaculating early will only be a problem, if you are worried about satisfying your lady-friend.
I noticed today that my 8 year old daughter seems to have a lot of vaginal discharge on her underwear. I asked her if she was itchy or sore down below and she said no. I'm just a bit concerned that she may go into early puberty and should I take her to see a doctor?
I am 15 years old, and I started puberty rather early (around the age of 10), I have developed pubic hair, curves and started my period. However, my breasts have not yet developed and I am becoming self concious about it! Has anyone got any advise or information that could help me?
Hi, this happens to many people. My older sister and I both had a similar problem. My older sister is 28 years old and only started developing breasts at the age of 16. The didn't grow much and to this day she is still only a 32B in bras. I started developing not long after my 15th birthday and managed to get to a 34C. Everyone is different. You may just have small breasts when you are older but this is 100% natural. You have nothing to be worried about at this moment in time. Hope this has helped

Don't worry, it's like that when you start your period. Trust me, it's difficult to determine when its coming at first, because the dates are all over the place ;) Don't worry, its normal!
thanks but idk if I am of well I will treat it as if I am thanks so much
i have not been through puberty yet, im 14. but the problem is i cannot pull back my foreskin enough to clean my penis, is this just because i have not been through puberty, should i see a doctor because of diseases?
dont worry, it will loosen if you gently stretch it, and because its sealed no bacteria will get in anyway. most people have their foreskin and the head of their penis attaced until puberty, or part way in, unless they had an accident, were circumcised or have a very loose foreskin. you'll get there. if im wrong it could be phimosis, but i doubt it as it sounds like the whole foreskin is tight, not just the edge.
I went through puberty very early and grew very tall from age 4.my family life was of domestic violence and then I was bullied at school re having an unusually developed body and being tall and spotty! Im 40 now and have had depression and anxiety all my life, was diagnosed schizophrenic when i had a psychosis but now the docs want to test me for personality disorder.Do you know of any help to overcome my main problem which is persistent bad memories of bullying and witnessing violence? I want to get over this!
Therapy/support groups. I have PTSD, and it's helped me out so much.
hi im a young teenager. i have a lump directly under my right nipple. and it hurts to touch.it keeps changing size and that nipple is slightly darker than my other one which my nurse told me about when learning about puberty that is doesnt matter if your nipples change colour during puberty. which made me less worried. i havent got breasts yet but there starting to develop. is this lump ok its about a couple of mm but gets bigger and smaller. is it just glands growing or is it just normall stage of puberty???
