I don't know if this is the right place to ask this or not...but here goes. I have an 11 year old son that has an embedded penis. He has been like this since after his circumcision when he was born. I thought because he was a chubby baby that it would go away, but after he turned 8, I took him to the doctor for it. The doctor told me that he thought that my son had a testicle that hadn't descended, so referred him to a urologist. The urologist took one look and said that my son did not have a bad testicle and he was very embedded, but that when the skin was all pulled back his penis was normal for an 8 year old. I have since taken him to another doctor that tells me that his penis is normal, but just embedded because he's chubby. I don't make a big deal of it because I don't want my son to be embarassed. When he stands up, he looks like a little girl. You can't see anything of the penis except an opening on his "fat pad". He doesn't have any physical problems as of now, but I worry that he will be made fun of by future girlfriends/wife or sports mates if this problem doesn't correct itself. Is this something that I should have corrected surgically or let nature take it's course and correct itself?
