  • Buried Penis

    A buried penis occurs where the shaft of the penis is literally buried under excess skin and fat – often as a result of obesity and significant weight loss. Read more →

    My 10 yr old son has a very small penis which when he stands normally is just skin. If he pushes the area above his penis his penis pops out but is still very small say 2 1/2". Ive taken him for consultations as he couldn't pull his skin back but he was told it was because he was slightly overweight and if he was to lose weigh his penis would come out more and he would be able to pull the skin back. Im not convinced this is true as he's lost weigh and nothings changed, it's still very small and the foreskin is tight. Any ideas??

    I think you're talking about two different issues here: 'buried penis syndrome' which is due to chubbyness/overweight and not uncommon in babies and young boys, and a tight foreskin (phimosis). You should seek advice on both.

    Hi. I am 17 years old, and my penis and balls would not grow. It's really small when soft (like the same size when I was 12) and when erect it's almost 6 inch. But the head of my penis is still small and my penis is really thin. My balls also feel an odd shape when I touch them too. Why is this?

    This may be normal for you, but should be evaluated. You should have a physical exam with your primary care provider as soon as possible. Tell your provider you want an evaluation with an endocrinologist. At your age, there may be some abnormality with your testosterone production that may be treatable

    No. The average penis length is 5.5 inches, so yours is just below average. The fact that none of your girlfriends has never complained means you have nothing to worry about.

    Mate you haven't said how big it is. Sometimes people think that it is small because it may look that way when you are looking down on it. I wouldn't stress to much. I'm no Dr but I think at 15 you still have some growing to do.

    I went to a doctor about the same xlconcern and found they are just glands in which detect sexual stimulation to the tip of the penis. nothing to worry about we all have them.

    Hi, Im 17 and am worried about some spots located just under the head of my penis. The spots are small and yellow and have not changed at all in a few years. the spots go all the way around the penis and become larger when the penis is erect. does anybody know what this is, my doctor told be that they are just small teenage spots that cant be gotten rid off but they are embarrassing.

    They sound like fordyce's condition,apparently very common in men mainly, although i'm a girl. They are overgrown sebaceous glands (oil glands I think) I have them, and I understand how you are feeling! They are very small, yellowish spot type bumps, I have obsessiveley looked up this condition and heared it is treatable but the treatments are only temp? Its given me OCD and depression, if you are worried go and ask for another dr's opinion, search the condition online to see if they look similar to yours or have tests - I think its the only thing that may settle your mind

    hello, i have the same as you can i would like to ask you if you find any information out can you please inform me of it? i am to embbarrised to go my doctors and i don't understand what it colud be?

    That honestly depends on the women. If they get around a lot then they will not want a smaller penis because they vag will be stretched out to fit a bigger one. But for those whom don't sleep around and are tight a bigger penis will hurt them and make it uncomfortable. So it really all depends on the women and how many people she has really slept with and the guys whom she has slept with their size. But most the time you are right most women want a guy around a size 5 or 6 and a lot of women say that to their partner so not to hurt their feelings.

    Depends on the woman. I could accommodate my ex who was about the same as you, but his new girlfriend couldn't , it just hurt. Women have different length vaginas too. Personally I prefer a 6" one. Find men are less cocky and do more to satisfy the woman than a man who thinks his huge one wk do the job for him :)

    hi. I'm 28. I have really small hands for a man. The men in my family have much bigger hands than me; my hands are closer to the size of the women's hands. However, that is the only part of me that is small. I'm 6 foot tall and my penis is about 6 inches, which is average, not small at all. So no, having small hands doesn't necessarily mean you will have a small penis (or be short). I don't know if it means anything except that you have small hands. When you think about it, the small hands makes your penis seem bigger when you hold it! Don't worry mate. By the way, I also worried that I had a small penis when I was 14. It will grow and even if it doesn't end up big, it is not the end of the world. There are men with small penises all around the country with girlfriends who they can please. When we are 14, we tend to make a big deal out of things like this in our heads. Hang in there- pun intended.

    Hi. I am over 30 and I also have a small 3.5 inch penis. I accept the fact that I am small and there is nothing I can do about it. I was married and had a gorgeous wife (the divorce was for other reasons). My advice is: don't worry about it. Most other guys won't even notice, believe me. Guys tend to notice huge penises, not small ones. Accept you have a small penis and even joke about it. That's what I do. Nobody is going to like me less because of a small penis. And the same applies to you. Good luck. Proud to be small!

    I am 19, my body is taking a long time to develop, I have a low voice but my penis is still small, I am worried becuase my penis is small. When my penis is erect, it is very hard to pull the foreskin over the head of my penis. If I had sex, would my penis hurt because of this??

    No, you should experience no pain during sex because of this. You've probably already proven this to yourself by masturbating. If you haven't experienced pain by masturbation there is no reason to expect that you would experience pain once you start having sex.

    Hi. Im 15 (soon 16) years old, and my penis is 5.7 inches long in full erection. When i look at my penis it looks too small, and im afraid to show my penis to girl, or even have sex. Maybe she will laugh when she see my penis. Is my penis to small for my age, and is my penis size enough to fully pleasure girl. Please answer. Thanks.

    Your penis is normal and not small. My penis is small, 1 inch soft and 3.5 inches hard. Be glad yours is normal.

    Maybe thats true. Im normal. But all my friends have bigger penises than me. They got 7 inches one. I feel so embarrased in lock room or shower.

    It's all about how the eyes sees things if you were 5 foot 6 with the same size penis you wouldn't feel like it's small. Just because your taller than average doesn't mean you necessarily get a bigger penis. I'm 6'8 and in the mirror I look small with a 7 inch penis but never been told I got a small one.

    Most men have a good size penis, and some have a small Penis,but i have a very small one, when i say that,I can push my Penis and make it disappear,so thats how small mine is. When hard its about 3 and half inches. When a women wants to play with it she as a job to find it,this is so enbarassing that it nocks sex on the head. Any Ideas,??

    It's a muscle so you have to exercise it. As far as going strong longer that has to do with your overall fitness.

    My son was circumised when he was 7. After the operation his penis was much small. He is now 13 and his penis hasn't grown at all (it is extemely small), he won't go swimming and is very shy because of it. It is that small he can't hold it when he pees and so he makes a terrible mess. Do you think that when he was circumised the surgeon took away too much skin and this is stopping his penis from growing and if so what can we do about it?

    Hello, I'm a 15 year old, healthy active male, and I have a penis problem, basically, I have a very small penis and it hasn't developed that " helmet " look at the end? (best way of describing it) Does it change naturally or do you have to do it personally? Also because of how small my penis is, I find it will be difficult to masterbate. Does masterbation help with growth of the penis? Would be much appreciated if I could get help/advice.

    My advice would be for you to get an exam from your doctor,as soon as possible. He/she will very likely know and identify what your condition is, and why it is that way, or what you may have come down with, become infected with, or come in contact with. Whether or not you believe that you presently don't have ENOUGH of the required equipment in order to have satisfactory sex, is immaterial. That question can wait, and so should you. Whether or not the equipment that you DO have (now or later)is healthy and normal is of far greater importance. And now, at the early age that you are, would be the far better time to understand, uncover,or be presently treated for anything that is not as it normally should be. Make an appointment, or have one scheduled for you, and get to the bottom of whatever might be the issue/s at hand. It's important that you do this, for obvious reasons now, as well as your general overall sexual health later on when you are ready for that. Go see your doctor!

    i have a small penis, i don't know what to do, i'm 42 years old and never had a long term relationship. when i get intimate with a girl the relationship takes a downward spiral due to me having such a small penis and i'm so depressed about it and my life is miserable. please help me, what do i do. i now don't go out anymore to meet girls becouse all that happens is girl take the micky out of me due to my small willy. i have a 4" penis

    Craig, dont worry about size at the moment.. You are going to go thru growth spurts now which includes all parts of your body.. this will go on till approx 21... In regards to the tip on the penis being sensitive.. Is red, swollen or anything not normal?? Are you wearing soft underwear, something that does not cause a abrasive feel.. If it persists go and have it checked out with either school nurse or a GP... Remember to a Doc, this is a day in day out job, and he has seen it all before and much much more, so dont be hestiatnt to go..10 mins with a professional person, you will know what is happening and walking out with a cure..Take care

    You may have to have a circumcision. It can become an extremely big problem later on.

    Sounds to me as if you need to see your doctor. Don't wory about the size of your dick - but you should be able to retract your foreskin without pain. Especially to be able to keep it clean - it may be that you need to be circumsized - no bad thing. I had to be done in the middle of puberty and still remember the pain of my tight foreskin - much better now and my dick grew to a normal 6.5" when erect

    Hi I'm male 15 (Since last December on the 28)and have i question about my penis size. I'm quite small, one of the smallest in my school year. I'm only 5.4ft. All the other 'boys'are much taller than me and all brag about having big penis and everyone assumes they do. I know that size is in no way in relation with penis size, however i been wondering if because of my size I'm am quite small, down there? So here's the awkward bit :/ As i said I'm 5.4ft. My penis is 5 and a half inch when flaccid and 7 and a half to 8 inches when erect. Is this small? or average? or that unlikely above average? I know it does not matter I'm just curious. People seem to think that size does matter and that looking at me i will be quite small there... but i still feel that mine in comparison will be small compared to the other boys. I know it does not matter and i don't care that much but there is a part of me that does and I'm mostly curious? So is my size normal for my age?? ( Thanks in advance )

    If you are 7 and a half inch when erect then to my knowledge you are above average. As far as I know average is about 6 or so inches, I am 37 and have slightly more then 6 inches when erect and have always heard that is about average. I dont think you have anything to worry about.

    im 14 and im only 5 inches when hard so i dont think you have anything to worry about

    Hi, I have on my penis, they more noticeable when it erect, around the penis ie down the penis not on the end, there are like little small tiny spot things, lot of them, they are small don't hurt, just wondered if normal.
