Some men opt for penis surgery based on their desires to simply be bigger and receive permanent growth. Others simply have the genetics resulting in a smaller than average penis size. So what men who have inordinately small penises? What are micro penises and what is micro penile disorder? Morganstern Health provides the answers.
What is Micro Penile Disorder
Many of our patients ask us, “What exactly is micro penile disorder?” The follow up question is, “Do I have this disorder?” There are some cases in which an adult male has an erect penis size of 2.75 inches or smaller. This often results from abnormal testicular development. In many cases the penis simply did not grow in length as it should have in the first trimester of development in utero. There is often a reduced level of testosterone in men with this condition. This is often referred to as micro penile disorder. The obvious problem is a possible difficulty in performing sexual intercourse. Other common problems occur with urination and fertility. For these reasons medical professionals are terming the condition as micro penile disorder. It is estimated that less than 1% of American men are born with this condition. Men that were born with micro penile disorder often seek treatment and are glad to find out it can be corrected.
