Hi,

Try measuring the stretched penile length after pressing base of penis with two fingers onto the pubic bone (penis being in between the fingers). This will give the true length, and avoid false measurement from a buried penis in subcutaneous fat tissue (especially in fat children).

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
