What is the reason for no growth of sexual organs since birth?

Q: My son who is 11 years and 6 months old has infantile though structurally normal sexual organs. There has been no perceptible growth since birth. It could be due to genetic or other factors. Is there any treatment for this? How can I go about it? I also do not want him to get any inferiority complex.

A:I do not think that there is anything to be worried about just yet. Your child will enter the stage of puberty in the next few years when, under the influence of hormones, the organs will grow in size. Till that time, there is usually not much increase in size during childhood. If your child starts to get pubic hair, facial hair and still there in no increase in size, then you should consult a specialist.
