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
