During puberty, the penis will grow in both length and girth. Once puberty ends, there is unlikely to be any further penile growth. That said, some males may experience growth into their early 20s. Many males have concerns about the size of their penis at some point. However, research shows that most have a penis size that is within the normal ranges.
At some point, most young men will wonder how the size of their penis compares to other guys. Asking this question is a normal part of development, especially if your body is going through some of the normal changes associated with puberty or if you are considering becoming sexually active.

Puberty usually begins between the ages of 9 and 14 and lasts up to five years or so, depending on the age at which it starts. The growth rate during puberty varies from one male to another. A study found that the average rate of penis growth is less than half an inch per year from ages 11 to 15, after which the growth rate continues, but at a slower rate until the age of 19 or so. You also start producing semen during puberty. Erections and ejaculation become more common during this time, as well.
