Customer Question
My son had an orchiectomy...
My son had an orchiectomy at age 11 months following a testicular torsion. Now he is 21 years old . 77 inch tall with plenty of chest hair and broad shoulders, handsome man with a deep strong voice.
He told me he thinks his penis is too small for his size. His Erect penis is 5 " log and testicle size is apparently normal. His fasting testosterone is 325 ng/dl
Should we be concerned?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
