Throughout history the penis has always been regarded as a symbol of masculinity, hence penile size and shape are frequently a source of anxiety for many men. Many men consciously or subconsciously define their identity and personality through their penis, with the view that “bigger is better”. Media and Internet never cease to reinforce this belief.
The question of what is considered a “normal penis” remains controversial. There is no scientific consensus and no standardization, but for practical purposes the average flaccid un-stretched penis is generally 9.0-9.5cm. It increases to an average erect length of about 12.5-14.5cm and an average erect girth (measured around the mid shaft) of about 10-10.5cm.
Only a very small number of men suffer from what is termed a “micropenis”, which is a congenital or acquired condition that results in an abnormally short penis. In some men diseases such as prostate cancer, pelvic or genital surgery, Peyronie’s disease, lichen sclerosus, penile cancer or trauma can result in penile shortening. This can be associated with functional and psychological problems.
Penile size and shape are often a very sensitive topic amongst men. Though the majority of men fall within the “normal” size range, concerns regarding penile size and girth can cause low self-esteem, sexual dysfunction, depression and psychiatric disorders.Penis enlargement has become the most sought after aesthetic medical treatment for men. This is not surprising as 45% of men report that they are dissatisfied with their penis size.
There is a lot of conflicting information regarding penile enhancement: today, advertisements boast huge penis size resulting form an array of methods ranging from pills, pumps, penis extenders, natural techniques, chemical enlargement, surgery, implants, girth injections, platelet rich plasma injections carried out by doctors, self-proclaimed experts and anonymous internet forums. What are the techniques that really work? What is feasible and what methods are simply a waste of time and money?
