Penis Size

How can I tell if my baby’s penis is the normal size for his age?

Penis Size

Dr. Greene’s Answer:

In determining size, the “stretched penile length” is far more important than the “relaxed length.” To evaluate penis size, stretch the penis gently and measure from the bone at the base all the way to the tip. Be sure to depress the surrounding fat pad to get all the way to the base. Here are the normal values:

Average Stretched Penile Length 
(Adapted from Feldman KW, Smith DW. Journal of Pediatrics. 1975; 86:395):

Age
Normal: Mean +/- 1 SD (inches)
Abnormal: Mean – 2.5 SD (inches)
0-5 months
1.5 +/- 0.3
0.75
6-12 months
1.7 +/- 0.3
0.9
1-2 years
1.9 +/- 0.3
1.0
2-3 years
2.0 +/- 0.4
1.1
3-4 years
2.2 +/- 0.4
1.3
4-5 years
2.2 +/- 0.4
1.4
5-8 years
2.4 +/- 0.4
1.5
8-11 years
2.5 +/- 0.4
1.5
Adult
5.2 +/- 0.6

    I am twelve years of age and my penis is [REDACTED BY MODERATOR]. I have only one pubic hair, which is black. I have had 13 nocturnal emissions (yes i have counted) and gym class sucks because my friends make fun of me. One is like [REDACTED BY MODERATOR] and the smallest, besides me, is [REDACTED BY MODERATOR] (estimated). This makes me very uncomfortable and I’m not sure if this is normal….PLEASE help me.

    • Dear TRD,

      I understand your concern, but size is dependents on more than age. I encourage you to read Penis Size During Puberty. If you still feel you are out of range, the next step is to be examined by your pediatrician or a pediatric urologist. He will be able to help you.

      I hope that helps,

      I hope you have seen the post that we published to address Penis Size During Puberty. If you haven’t, read it now as it will answer some of your questions.

      All boys and girls develop at different rates. This means some will be behind others in their development. Regardless of whether you are on track or not, your concern over your penis size is enough reason to discuss this with you pediatrician or family doctor. You can bring it up at your next appointment. Your doctor will likely do a physical exam and can tell you if you are the appropriate size for your stage of development or not and provide direction if you need further help.

    • At 14, with your strong feelings, it is wise to discuss this with your pediatrician. At your age, you are due to have a physical exam each year. Typically your pediatrician will ask your parent to wait in another room for your exam and he* will ask you if you have any concerns that you’d like to discuss in private. He will be able to help you.

      If you don’t get a regular check up, ask your mom or dad to make an appointment for you to be checked. If that’s not possible, the next time you’re sick with something like a flu bug, use that as a reason to see your doctor — then ask to talk to him about something else. That happens frequently. But, I’d suggest, if you’re going use this tactic, be sure to tell him first thing that there is something else you want to discuss so you don’t run out of time.

      Hope that helps.

    My son is 2 yrs old and I am concerned about his penis. When he was born, it was barely visible. His pediatrician insists nothing is wrong. The length is borderline based on the chart above, just under 1 and a quarter inch stretched out. But the circumference or thickness is much smaller than usual. It’s the thickness of a standard #2 pencil. What other doctor could give us a second opinion since the pediatrician doesn’t see a problem? Thank you,

      Christian, the stage you are in puberty is more important that your age. Talk to your pediatrician and ask him if your size is normal for your stage of development. He will be able to tell you and won’t be at all put off by your question.

    I am an 11 year old male with an oddly feminine voice,even for my age, the girls have deeper voices than me, and the people around me have noticed an odd stench around my sweat.

    I stand at 5 foot one inch in height and my penis is [REDACTED BY MODERATOR] and the slightest of touches/attractive feminine thoughts/scenes makes it hard. Is this small or is it average and is this overall normal or abnormal?

    • It’s not unusual for boy’s voices to be higher in pitch at age 11, but the combination of an oddly feminine voice and “an odd stench around my sweat” would be worth bringing up at your next pediatrician’s visit.

    Hi Dr Greene, I love your website first of all. My son just turned 9 months old. When he was born, the doctor noticed that his penis size was pretty long while he was circumsizing him. However now both genitals look small. Can it be possible? I don’t really know what small is but it doesn’t look long and the tip is kind of covered with the top skin. My boy is very tall and slim. 9.7 kg and 75 cm. The pediatrician said it looks a little small. I have a thyroid disease. Can it be related to that, or circumsion, or nothing to worry about? I would be very happy if you could write me back please. Many thanks!!! Regards.

    • Per the chart above — 8-11 years, 2.5 +/- 0.4 — you are very, very close to the range. The slight difference could be due to measurement alone. At your next physical you can bring your concerns up with your doctor, but probably not a reason to make a special appointment.

      When I was 12 years old mine was 4 inches and my best friend was already 6.25 inches, both pretty skinny. When we were age 15 his was 7.5 and mine 6.5 inches, and about the same thickness. Then when we reached 18 years old mine was 7.25 inches, and his was still 7.5, and skinnier than mine.

      When I was 12 I had another friend who was 5 inches erect…and at 18 he was still 5 inches erect.

      You can never tell by your size at 12 what it will be as an adult! You have plenty of time to grow and I’m sure you will grow a lot by the time you reach adult hood.

    Hello, Dr. Greene! This is a very unusual thing, a twelve year old questioning penis size, but I have questions. I wanted to know if it is normal for a 12 year old to have a 2.5 inch fully erect penis. But then again, I don’t think puberty has hit me… Well… There… But just in case.

    If someone could please answer this it would be great. Im 13 and turning 14 in august 2015. My penis is about 5 inches measuring from the top of my dick. I just wanted to know if i am measuring correctly, and id like to compare with others around the same age. Also if any females would be happy with my length.

    • Josh, That’s well within normal for an adult, so no need to be concerned.

      Boys, females are more concerned with how you treat them than your size. If you genuinely make a girl feel special (not a manipulation of her feelings with flattery), your love life will be fine. Concentrate on becoming the kind of person who others want to be around — interested in them, kind, funny without drawing attention to yourself, empathic, considerate. This may not make you the boss in the locker room, but if what you’re interested in is a lifetime of happiness, then forget about what the other guys think and become the kind of person a woman would want to be with.

    Hi

    I have a urgent question . Please help me . I was born in 1993 Sep and now I’m 22 years old . My penis size is around 1.5″ Flaccid (non erect) and 5.5″ (erect) . I think my flaccid size is very very abnormal and really it looks like a very young boy’s penis whereas my brothers size and form is very different and actually they have normal size. I remember that since I was 12 years old until now my penis size and form not change in flaccid shape. What is the main reason? Is there a treatment ? Oh I should tell you since childhood I like to put a pillow or something like it between my legs so that it press my penis and testicle and this was very pleasant for me during sleep and rest. I think doing this about 10 years prevents enlargement of my penis. Is it related to my problem or not?

    Thanks a lot …

      Hello, don’t worry at all. You will have done yourself no damage. Your size is average when erect, not a problem and flaccid state is fine too – you are a grower. I personally am quite small when flaccid, but grow to a good size when roused. You are absoutely fine and should not worry.

    • Hi Brett,

      Thank you so much for your comment. You raise an interesting and complex question. I must admit, we’ve been struggling to find the right balance. Here is the background —

      When Dr. Greene wrote this answer he was addressing the parent of a baby who was concerned about a medical condition. As a pediatrician, this is a question he gets routinely and a valid one. Recently we started getting comments from a lot of adolescent boys asking about their own penis size. We moderate all comments and have guidelines, for instance we don’t post hateful comments, comments that call other people names, spam, or anything pornographic. We do allow differences of opinion and respect multiple points of view. Where do these new questions fall within our guidelines?

      Our first thought was we needed to update our chart on penis size so these boys could just look on the chart and have their answer. You may have noticed that the chart skips from 11 years-old to adult without data. Interestingly when Dr. Greene did the research to find the answers he found there was no trusted data on normal penis size in adolescent boys. That meant we couldn’t just add to the chart.

      What we have done in the short run was to carefully read each comment and try to decide the intent of the boy writing in. Was this a joke? Was it pornographic? Was it an honest concern? Did it make fun of anyone else? We aren’t perfect (that is certain), but based on these reasons, we do not publish many of the comments made on this post.

      So why would we publish them at all? By the time kids reach puberty most have been exposed to photos, typically online or in the media, that show the human body in unrealistic proportions. Typically these photos are sexual in nature, but not always. It is our hopes that in the absence of scientific data, by allowing adolescent boys to post their honest question about the body part they feel most insecure, they will see that they are not abnormal. We know the sizes they post can not be trusted due to differences in measurement techniques and the human tendency to make ourselves appear better in other’s eyes.

      We would love your feedback. After you hear our reasoning, do you still think we should delete all these comments?

      Thanks again for voicing your concern.

      You’re doing just fine for 12. Yours is well above average for your age! Infact, average for a FULL GROWN adult is 5 to 6 inches. AND YOU ARE ALREADY IN THAT RANGE AT ONLY 12!!

      When I was 12 years old mine was 4 inches and my best friend was already 6.25 inches, both pretty skinny. When we were age 15 his was 7.5 and mine 6.5 inches, and about the same thickenss. Then when we reached 18 years old mine was 7.25 inches, and his was still 7.5, and skinnier than mine.

      You can never tell by your size at 12 what it will be as an adult!

      Yes, yes, of course. That’s very natural. And remember that no matter what your friends or other kids at school say, penis size does not have anything to do with your worth. It’s not a bad thing to be below average, or above average. Penises (and vaginas) come in many different shapes, colors, and sizes, but if you’re experiencing pain or abnormally strong, stinky smells coming from that area (it’s natural for it to smell not-so-great sometimes, though. Just make sure to clean yourself regularly), please, please, please know that going through the embarrassment of letting your parent(s) or guardian(s) know about your issue will be so much easier than dealing with what could potentially end up as a life-long issue that could cause problems with self esteem and relationships and/or result in continuous pain.

      But seriously, I know for absolute sure that penis size does not tie into your value or worth. It’s completely okay to look different from other guys in pictures or videos, because they were specifically selected because they match what we, today, think of as having the ideal penis. Believe me this, though. M a n y, if not most, penises (and testicles – some hang lower than others. Some are larger or smaller than others) look very different from those that are currently put in pictures and videos, and as long as you are healthy, there is nothing bad about the way that your penis (and the rest of your body) looks.

        There’s a large range of what is “normal” for penis size. They grow at different rates for different people. Plus, I’m a woman telling you that penis size doesn’t really matter to most women, and who knows better than a woman?

      Don’t worry. I’m the same age and mine is small too. Girls don’t usually care that much about it as much as it might seem they do. We’ll be fine, not everyone is perfect.

        • Hi Kevron,

          I know it seems odd, because we used to respond to questions about size, but we’ve since decided that we need to direct readers to a post we wrote just for boys going through puberty. You can find that information at Penis Size During Puberty.

          Hope that helps!

    My son is 5.3 years old, his weight is 17 kg, but his penis size is 1.5cm after stretched. Is there anything we can do so it comes in normal size? As I also feel shy to talk about it to doctors.

    Hello, when measuring my son’s penis should I go by the stretched or the erect measurement? It appears that the erect measurement is about half an inch longer than the stretched measurement.

    My son just turned 2 years old and his penis is 3 CM is this normal? When he was born a urologist questioned if he had micropenis the endocrinologist didn’t say, just that he was smaller than average.

      I seriously doubt that your 5 year old son is 20 cm… did u pull his skin forward instead of back to measure? less than 7 cm would be about average.. 20 cm is very unlikely
