Background and Objective: Penile size is of great importance between some men and they are looking for a longer penis. The number of urologists visiting for complaining about short penis is increasing. Therefore, providing a definition of normal penis size can help Iranian physicians and patients.
Methods: This study was performed as a cross-sectional descriptive study in 1396-97 at Imam Sajjad Hospital in Tehran. In this study, simple random sampling of 500 soldiers referred to the urology department of Imam Sajjad Hospital. Data were collected by urologists. After collecting the data, it entered the spss21 for analysis.
Results: Our study on Iranian military soldiers consisting of all provinces showed that mean penile flaccid length is 7.87 cm, stretched length is 12.22cm and mid shaft circumference is 8.49 cm. Differences among provinces were not significant. There was no association between age and height with penile parameters.
Conclusion: Conclusion: Our study shows that in Iranian soldiers from every province, there was no significant penile parameter differences nor significant correlation with their height and age. These data may help urologists to reassure and inform men who are concerned about their penile size.
