If a boy is 6ft1 at 15 yrs. Old with a 6ft6 wingspan, size 14 shoes, big hands and parents are 5ft10 & 5ft6. How tall would he be by the his mid 20's?

If a boy is 6ft1 at 15 yrs. Old with a 6ft6 wingspan, size 14 shoes, big hands and parents are 5ft10 & 5ft6. How tall would he be by the his mid 20's?

Hard to say: At this point, he is taller than projected height by genes (m+f/2+2.5 inches) by more than 3 inches. If he entered puberty at the normal time he may gain 2 inches or so but not much more. A single x-ray of the wrist and hand can be graded for bone maturity. If his bone age is more like 13 he could grow much more, if more like 17 he is almost finished. ...Read more

Veins on top of hand big and poppy feel squishy too with a bit of pain in the hand why?

Veins on top of hand big and poppy feel squishy too with a bit of pain in the hand why?

Not sure about poppy: Liz, every person's hand veins become more prominent with age. Normal veins feel "squishy". They easily move away when you push them. It's normal and not dangerous.
Arthritis is also common with age and the most common cause of pain in hands. However, if you have hurt your hand or burst a vein you could have bruise-like pain. Apply warm compresses and it will probably get better. Good luck ...Read more

What are the causes of big green vain in hands?

What are the causes of big green vain in hands?

Normal: Normal hands often have visible vessels simply because the layer of tissue under the skin (the subcutaneous layer) is thinner over the hands so the veins are more shallow. Vein blood is mostly very dark red but the skin absorbs some colors better than others and the greenish tint is what your eye sees. Skin gets thinner with age, so veins often become more visible (and darker) over time. ...Read more

There is an emotional disorder that finds problems with one's body parts. The person gets lots of surgery but the cause is really emotional. Please see a mental health professional for talk therapy and stress management. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Hi I have a big bump on my hand and it itches really bad and when I itch. It clear stuff comes out. And it stings when I touch or itch it. What is it?

Could be..: A couple of things, but without a picture of it or seeing it myself it's hard to say for sure. It could be an allergic reaction to something you came in contact with or a reaction to a bug bite. It could also possibly be a skin infection.
