Adult male organ on a boy. Shocking effect of growth condition
Most men dream of large manhood. However, when a 1-year-old child gets a bigger penis that is a problem. This boy started developing all the signs of adulthood being just a toddler!
The boy from India suffers from a rare condition called “precocious puberty”. At the age of 18 months, his parents started noticing pubic hair growth and some hair on his face, too. Plus, the size of the boy’s penis was extraordinary for his age.
The child suffered from painful erections and mood swings. He acted out as a 12-year-old boy. In addition to such odd things as an adult male organ the boy’s height was abnormal for his age. Such condition is caused by hormonal dysfunction.
“We thought he was just a big baby, but later everyone started to point out that this growth couldn’t be normal,” told his mother. “His penis had grown to that of a man’s size and we knew something was wrong,” she added.
The parents turned to doctors for medical help and good thing they did. Here is what the doctor has to say about his condition:
“Precocious puberty is traumatic for a child of his age, and it makes them violent. His muscle strength increased to a level that even his parents couldn’t control him.”
Presently the kid is treated with hormones to normalize his growth and development. A baby boy in a teenage body overcomes the challenges, and some of the signs of premature development get reversed back to normal. Scientists believe that one in 100 000 infants can suffer from such an unusual dysfunction.
