There is no medical standard for penis size. The statistical average size for an adult (i.e., beyond puberty) male when erect is 4.5-5.5 inches. If adult penis size when erect is less than 7 cm (2.75 inches), then the diagnosis of "microphallus" or "micropenis" may be made; as this condition may involve hormonal or genetic causes, evaluation by an endocrinologist (hormone specialist) may be helpful.
