Man kills self over genital size

`An 18-year-old Singaporean student committed suicide last month because he was convinced his penis was too small, a report said on Wednesday. [..]

The teenager, who was not named, jumped from a building on March 3. A suicide note explained why, an investigation to determine the cause of death said.

“He said it was not due to the stress of his examination, but it was more about his physical development… He still knew there was something wrong with his body parts,” said the report quoted by the newspaper.

It said the teenager had confided in his mother in October 2005 that he was worried about the size of his penis. She took him to a clinic where a doctor said it was normal for an Asian man and prescribed multi-vitamins.’
