A 32-year-old male asked:

If a male was to see puberty changes just starting at nearly age 15 (late bloomer). what age would growth stop at?

Puberty and growth: There are many things which happen during puberty. Often the lay definition ignores things like testicular growth. So, figuring out how long or how many inches someone might grow after puberty begins is going to require more investigation. I would suggest seeking an opinion from an endocrinologist, either pediatric or adult depending on the age of the patient.
