Aseem Shukla, MD, a pediatric urologist and director of minimally invasive surgery in the Division of Urology at CHOP, and Merritt Jensen, PhD, a pediatric psychologist, recently addressed a common concern among parents of young males in an interview with the New York Times.

As children grow, both parents and patients sometimes worry about the normal development of genitals. Shukla and Jensen talk about what they assess for during physical exams, how they counsel families to reassure them about what’s normal during development, and explain some common urologic conditions.

The story appeared on the New York Times website, among other news outlets.
