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
3.7

      You are a lucky boy. The average size of a ten year olds erect penis is right around 2 inches.

      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.

    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
