Dr. Adesman, [br>[br>I am concerned about my 10-yr old. HIs penis size has not grown since birth much at all., My two year old has a larger penis. He was on high dose ORAPRED for Nephrotic syndrome for about 2 years from ages 2-4.5. Do you think that may have affected his size? His pediatrician states this is normal and wait until puberty. Should I be worried? He is having self complex issues, especially with little brother

Hi Anon and Welcome -

This discussion with great response and resources will show you that you and your son are not alone -

Should I be concerned about the size of my child's penis?

The discussion has links for defining size and charts.

This link, Orapred , has side effects for the medications, but please discuss your concerns with your pharmacist and doctor.

Please let us know if this is helpful and if you have additional questions.

Elizabeth
