  • Penis lengths charted to answer the 'am I normal?' question

    Doctors searched through 17 published studies studies on more than 15,000 men who had their penis size measured by a health professional and graphed the averages in Tuesday's issue of BJU International, formerly the British Journal of Urology. The graphs will help doctors reassure the large majority of men that their penis size is in the normal range, said study author Dr. David Veale, of King's College London. The researchers say measuring penis size is important in assessing men who complain of a small penis and to investigate the relationship between condom failure and penile dimensions. Study volunteers may also have been more confident in their penis size than the general male population.
