An adult penis with an erect length of less than 7 cm (2.8 in), but otherwise formed normally, is referred to in medicine as a micropenis.

Studies that have relied on self-measurement, including those from Internet surveys, consistently reported a higher average length than those that used medical or scientific methods to obtain measurements.

The following staff-measured studies are composed of different subgroups of the human population (i.e., specific age range or race; selection of those with sexual medical concerns or self-selection) that could cause a sample bias.
