underdeveloped penis
I have a 9 year old son whose penis doesn't look like his age. He was circumcised but still his penis is only an inch long. I am worried that this may create problem on him as he grows older. Can you please advise me on what action should I take and what field of doctor's specialization should I consult with this kind of problem?

Thanks

check out website www.drgreene.com/qa/penis-size-defined?Pagination=1
It has a chart for childs age and what a normal penis size is and what is abnormal. Some different syndromes. Normal size for 8-11yrs old 2.5+/-0.4 (inches), abnormal 1.5 could be micropenis....which can be caused by hormonal imbalance. States Hormones need to be checked as well as chromosomes to see if underlying genetic syndrome. MRI may be needed to look at hormone secreting gland. Talks about how to measure, suppose to stretch it while measuring. Suggests seeing a Pediatric Urologist for this. I am researching as well on this subject. Hope this may help.
