Yearly checkup
 
I was wondering if it was weird to ask your doctor if your dick was going to grow any more?
Would they ask you to make it hard? Or how would it go about?

I doubt they would ask you to do that.

They wouldn't ask you to do anything. A medical doctor isn't gonna have you get an erection. They'll just tell you that yes, it will grow until you're in your twenties.

A doctor isn't really going to be able to answer that sort of question anyways. There's no real exact time when EVERY guy or girl stops growing and maturing.

I feel like they can kinda tell you what the typical range is, as far as how long you could grow. But they don't have a crystal ball to say exactly when. Highly doubt they'd need to see you hard unless it happened by accident of course. Might take a peek to see what you look like and that everything is normal enough but that's about it.

No, it wouldnt be weird to ask your doctor if your peen was going to grow anymore, they are there for you to ask questions about your body and development. Your doctor would not ask you to get an erection, but he/she will probably ask you a lot of questions about your life, habits, and development in order to answer your questions. At least that was my experience.

It wouldn't be weird to ask. Your penis may continue to grow past 18 or may stop at 16. There is no true way of knowing until your 20's.

We dont have yearly check ups in UK, it would be horrible to let a doctor check out my bits

There is nothing wrong in asking ur
doctor personal questions bout urself
if u r concerned. I'm sure he is not going
to ask u to get a boner.

I think if you were going to ask about your penis size it would be best to ask them something like ... "Am I average in growth or behind or ahead average"? They can't really answer how much you will grow since they don't have a crystal ball. They wouldn't make you hard or ask you to get hard, just look at it soft and look at your height and muscles and maybe give you a brief tanner stage survey.

My last physical, the doc had me lie down and he pushed all over my stomach, then pulled open my shorts and stuck one hand in. He never exposed my stuff, and he said something to me like, "Just a quick check of the equipment..." Then, after taking his hand out, he asked me if I had any questions or concerns about my "guy development", and I said no. Then he outright asked me if I was "sexually active", and again I said no. And then he said, "I have to ask you this, too, have you been sexually active with same-sex partners?" And I said no to that, too. (That really freaked me, wondering if he could tell that I have been. Not at all recently, but I still denied it.)
Of course all this took place in private, no parents there, but an assistant of his was in the room.

We don't have yearly checkups so if I wanted to ask that question of my doctor I'd have to make an appointment to do so.

On the one hand doctors have heard all sorts before, will be just about impossible to embarrass and will try to be helpful. On the other hand when your penis stops growing depends on the rest of your growth and, like everything else in puberty can vary from one person to another. If the doctor was to do better than say "wait and see" he'd need to be trying to work out your development progress. There is the tanner stages for that and it would obviously take time to assess you in that way. Maybe a wrist X-ray to assess bone age would help. But these all take time and money and whether the doctor would want to commit that to answer that question I don't know. Maybe it depends on your heath system and how he is paid. Even then the answer is going to be an educated guess.

I think I would have found that weird to have dived in a started feeling without explaining what he was feeling for. Makes you wonder what the last question was about but assuming he was genuinely checking your health then he would probably be trying to work out your risk of having been exposed to an STI.

Re: Yearly checkup
 
I have an older brother that is a physician specialist in adolescent medicine, so I asked him:

He gets this question at least 30% of physical exams. He assures them that their penis length is normal for their age (unless they are not- example: 16 yr old with no indication of puberty yet. In that case, he orders various hormone level tests & sometimes x-ray of hands for bone age)

Regarding your question about whether the penis will grow more, his response depends on the patient's Pubertal Stage. To someone in early puberty he says, "I expect you have a good more growing to do." To guys in end stages of puberty: "Possibly, but additional growth can continue for several more years,"

Regardless of age & puberty stage, he told me that he always follows up with:
1. Do you have concerns about that? I have time to discuss it right now & our discussion is totally confidential.
2. We can follow up on your development down there on future visits, to see how you feel about your growth.

He said he has NEVER asked a patient to develop an erection so that he can see it. He trusts his patient's measurements if HE volunteered that info. "The only time ANY doctor should as a kid or teen to develop an erection is if a urologist needs to assess hypospadias or epispadias. Anything else is unethical & should be reported to the State Medical Board"

When a patient develops an erection during an exam, he says, "That's perfectly normal, don't worry about it. Your hormones are high in puberty, & we all get erections, at times, for no obvious reason!"

Sorry if this is TMI
