Growth of the voice box is usually between the age of 14 -15 years. It is this time when brain adapts to the longer membranes within your voice box, the adult type voice develops.
The rate of penile growth varies from everyone and depends on genetic factors (from the father), Nutrition and psychological development. The growth of penis and testicles usually starts by the age of 9, but it continues upto the age of 18. The growth rate spurt will be maximum between 15 -18 years. Your penis, testes and scrotum will be reaching full adult size by the age of 20 years. At full maturity, your penis will be about 3.25 to 4.25 inches at rest and 5 to 7 inches while erect.
In case, of doubt or anxiety, you may consult with your doctor, who can examine you can clear all your doubts.
I hit puberty when I was 10 (which scared me somewhat, as I didn't understand it, being the only one in my peer group to have done so), but there was another boy in my class who didn't hit puberty until after he had left school, when he was about 17, at which point he rocketed in all-round growth - including an extremely generously sized penis. While he was at school he may have been mocked for having a small penis, but when the inevitable growth spurt came, he was able to show all the others up.
I know the length of years are always viewed as a relative proportion to how many years a person has been alive (thus, the younger you are, the longer a year may seem), but I promise you that as you get older you will look back on those few years of new experiences as your body changes with a great deal of nostalgia, wishing you could relive the days.
Just wait it out and listen to what others have said And I too had lumps under my nipples in 8th grade (I think... maybe 7th?) when I started really going into puberty and they scared me to death (we had just been learning about cancer in science ) But went to the doctor and he informed me that it happened to boys on occasion. It was just tissue build up due to all those hormones... It did take a while for them to go away though. I forgot how long
