Small Penis

The best way to estimate the length of the penis is to stretch it out (measurement of the penis when flaccid). 5.24 - 6.0 inches is the average range. Various physical and social factors, such as race and ethnicity, influence the length of the penis. When the stretched penis length is less than 2.5 standard deviations off the average in a given community, it is referred to as a micropenis or a small penis. Micropenis is a sporadic condition that is usually discovered at a young age. Hormone secretion-related disorders can cause it. Hormone therapy, both local and systemic, and surgical options are used to treat small penis.
