Shrinking Penis


Defining small economy

Koro, also known as genital retraction syndrome or shrinking penis is a mental disorder in which patients, both male and female experience a very strong anxiety due to their false belief that their penises or nipples are getting smaller and smaller, fearing that they will eventually retreat completely completely (1).

To rule out the possibility of a genuine disorder that will have the same effect, patients who suffer from Koro need to be diagnosed by a psychologist. This is a culture-specific syndrome and in case you’re not from Southeast Asia you have no reason to worry you will be under stress for no reason… but the possibility your beliefs are fond on real facts might be accurate!
