Micropenis

Track 6: Micropenis

Micropenis is a medical term for a condition usually discovered in infants through a newborn examination. As the term suggests, Micropenis refers to an abnormally small but normally structured penis. The condition is caused by hormonal or genetic abnormalities. Before birth, a male infant’s genitalia develop in response to certain hormones, mainly androgens While a micropenis can develop on its own, with no other hormone-related conditions, it can occur along with other disorders.

Assuming there are no other health concerns, a micropenis functions the same as a normal, healthy penis. The ability to urinate and become erect shouldn’t be affected. A micropenis is sometimes associated with a lower sperm count, however, so fertility may be reduced. A buried penis is a penis of normal size, but it is hidden or buried under folds of skin of the abdomen, thigh, or scrotum. A buried penis is usually diagnosed in infancy, but it can develop later in life.

Another condition that may be mistaken for micropenis is webbed penis, also known as an “inconspicuous penis.” A baby boy can be born with it or it can develop from a circumcision complication. Treatment that begins earlier in life can lead to better results. Your child’s age, medical history, and the extent of the condition will help determine what treatment options make the most sense.
