Penis Enlargement | Weill Cornell Medicine: Department of Urology - New York
All men should think about penis health. A man must have a healthy penis to function as a healthy person. He needs a healthy penis to remove urine and maintain the right fluid balance in his body. A healthy penis is needed for sex and to get a woman pregnant. A problem with the penis can sometimes be a helpful clue for the doctor. It may be a hint about a problem somewhere else in the body, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease.
Penile size differs between men of different ethnic backgrounds and large studies of penis girth and length have been conducted by condom manufacturers. What many men perceive as a short penis actually falls into normal range size. Penis size is an important issue for many men and men of all ages are concerned about length and thickness of their penises. As with any health concern, men who are worried about their penis size should consult with a urologist trained in sexual medicine.
