Size of penis
Posted on: 10/17/2007
i was just curious to know, I'm a 17 year old male from Australia.
since grade 6 my penis has been around 10 inches long. it has not grown or shrunk and I am now in grade 11.
I am very sexually active and a lot of girls get freaked out.
Is this size normal?
I always felt like a freak in the changing rooms.
also, an area of skin has kind of swelled on the top of the shaft, and in the middle there's a lump under the skin, it almost feels like a hard lump in a vein, it hurts with pressure is applied.
then the same thing without the swelling of skin above my penis, to the right, kind of the ridge where my leg meets my penis.
Thank you in advance.
Chances are good it is normal for you, and as for the lumps and bumps - we cannot tell you about them via the Internet, so ask a doctor the next time you get an exam, or, just make an appointment to talk about it.
