My son is 12 years old and has an extremely small penis ad he is now getting concerned because he has to change and shower for gym class and has noticed that most of the boys are much bigger than him. About a year ago he had called e into the bathroom because he accidently got one of his sisters lon hairs wrapped around it and his father wsn't home to help. At that ime I had noticed that he was just about the sme size now as when he was a toddler. And in the last year it hasn't grown and now I am concerned for him too. I was wondering if tere is a medical conditin that could cause this or will it improve. He hasn't let me ask the doctor bacause he is embarressed, is there anythng I should be doing and should I talkt the doctor about this?
