User avatar Before you have surgery, you should have your growth hormone level checked. Low growth hormone level can be associated with a small penis.

Should surgery be in order, I would recommend you discuss this with a urologist or plastic surgeon. They would be able to discuss available options for treatment.

Best wishes.
