Micropenis

Micropenis is a condition diagnosed at birth in which the penis size is smaller than that of a normal infant. However, the function, structure, and all other features are normal. If the fetus's body does not respond to androgens or if the androgen production is reduced, the penis remains small, which is also called microphallus. Hormonal therapy and phalloplasty are few treatment options available.
