2. Poor Development During Puberty

Males with hypogonadism often experience slowed development during puberty. Body hair doesn't grow or grows extremely slowly, and often the penis and testicles will fail to grow as well. Muscle mass tends to decrease relative to age and height. In many cases, the arms and legs will grow at a faster rate than the rest of the body. In some males with hypogonadism, breasts may begin to develop during puberty.
