Using stellar mass and effective radius, we assess the size-mass relation of around 68,000 galaxies from Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 15. We classify these galaxies with respect to their morphology: spiral and elliptical. Both types of galaxies show different size-mass relation. We compare these relations to the relations of compact objects such as globular clusters and ultra-compact dwarfs. The compact objects lie on the extension of best fit size-mass relation of elliptical galaxies but not of spiral galaxies.
