Hello M. Novan, thank you for asking.
Everyone must experience a growth of secondary sex signs when entering puberty. Secondary sex signs in men include: increase in penis and testicular size, erections and ejaculations, body hair growth, protruding adams, heavy voices, and body odor begins to arise. Sexual development is caused by a significant increase in reproductive hormones. Basically, male reproductive hormones and women are both derived from cholesterol that is experiencing metabolism. Therefore, although in the male hormone testosterone is more dominant, but there is also the hormone estrogen in low amounts.
When there is an increase in the hormone estrogen and a decrease in the hormone testosterone in men, there can be changes in secondary sexual signs. For example, breast size increases, voice changes, penis and testicle sizes shrink, and body hair decreases. Changes in hormonal balance can be caused by:
hypogonadism, for example in people with sex chromosome abnormalities. hyperthyroidism. obesity. liver disorders, for example liver cirrhosis. kidney disorders. malnutrition. alcoholism. steroid abuse. You should check with an internist to find out more. Your doctor may need to do a blood test to find out your hormone levels and organ function. In addition, the doctor may also do chromosome analysis. Whether or not you receive hormone therapy depends on the doctor's findings. That is the information I can give. hopefully useful enough. Regards.
