okay, I'm 13 and have 2 really worrying problems with my penis, 1 is stopping it's 'functionality' and the other just drops my confidence, but I guess the first one is the main problem: My penis foreskin doesn't retract behind the head, and I don't know what to do, I have informed my doctor but didn't want to get it out (because of the second reason) I cant go forever without an unfunctional penis can I? second thing, despite the fact im only 13 I have a really mature physique, I'm broad, not so much as tall as I'm only 5"4, have hair all over my body (Heck I even have a thick snail trail) My voice broke a year ago, and I have a large ballsack but my penis is tiny? It's really embarrassing cos my mate (my age) has a 7" (You can see a MASSIVE bulge in his boxers so it's easy to believe) my cousin who is a year older than me but has no other signs of physical maturity has a 6" penis and my other mates average on about a 5.5 - 6 (Have seen them as they've all pulled them out for a joke) and I am so worried about having a small penis, it's like the worst thing that could happen to a guy, It also has a really ugly 1cm length of foreskin on the end, when should I see my penis size get bigger (if it does) and when should the excess foreskin dissapear? I know I'm young but it's just I'm an outcast when you think about it!
A foreskin that goes beyond the head of the penis is a normal variation. Hopefully, your doctor explained that to you. It will not impede any of the functions of the penis.
While I strongly disagree that having a small penis is, by any stretch, the worst thing that can happen to a man or person min their lives, you are only 13. You most likely have years, maybe even a decade more, to go when it comes to your sexual development. So, while myth have had some other development going that seems further along than your penis growth may be, at 13, your penis, like the rest of your body, is by no means done growing.
Why do you say you are an outcast? Outcast from what?
