My dads nsclc has grew 25% in three months what would suggest to do?

Is he getting tx?: Is he getting treatment for his nsclc? If it is his decision that he does not want to get treatment, the cancer unfortunately will only continue to grow. If he is getting treatment now- and the mass grew bigger 25% -that means -he would need to switch his therapy to the next line of treatment. He should discuss in detail with his oncologist-re options of treatment, possible adverse events etc. ...Read more

I hit puberty at the age of 9 and since then I only grew 10cm. Is this normal? (im 16 now)

I hit puberty at the age of 9 and since then I only grew 10cm. Is this normal? (im 16 now)

Yes: Typically, girls only grow an inch or 2 after they start menstruating and you grew more than that! You can have an xray done to check your bone age to determine if you are done growing or not - if you are very short and are concerned about it. The younger you are when you get your period - the sooner you will reach full maturity compared to someone who first gets her period when she is 14. ...Read more

I'm a 21 year old female who is 6'1 and I noticed that I grew taller. How do I know if I have a growing disorder?

I'm a 21 year old female who is 6'1 and I noticed that I grew taller. How do I know if I have a growing disorder?

Ask Mom and Dad: In some families, the teens keep growing a little bit each year in college because their growth plates haven't completely closed. There are usually other relatives with the same trait, so mom and dad should know of some. One's pediatrician (from prior years), or another doctor experienced in childrens' and teens' growth, can evaluate to see if any tests or anything should be done. ...Read more

I grew 1cm during the past month and I am 16 (turning 17 in 5 months). Does that mean my growth plates are still open?

I grew 1cm during the past month and I am 16 (turning 17 in 5 months). Does that mean my growth plates are still open?

Yes: If you are still growing, your growth plates are still open. Once your growth plates close, no further increase in height is possible. It is interesting that you're still growing considering your age and sex. Young women typically close their growth plates 12 to 18 months after they began having their periods – began menses. ...Read more

21 female. I've been taking gericomplex for mono, its not making me energised but I grew 3cms taller since I started it. Why?

21 female. I've been taking gericomplex for mono, its not making me energised but I grew 3cms taller since I started it. Why?

Diurnal variation?: A 21yo female should have already reached her full growth. The gericomplex is a non factor. A normal individual can vary in their height between 0.8-2.8cm during the course of the day. You are tallest when you arise and thereafter gravity pulls you down. Accuracy between measurements is often less than perfectly reproducible. ...Read more

It would be: Good to have all the biometrics meaning age, height, weight, BMI, body composition or lean and fat body mass, These numbers would give a useful set of data from which a better picture could be extracted. What you have provided actually tells me nothing that is of any use in helping to counsel you. Please obtain as many as you can and re-post. Thanks ...Read more

I have this large bump that started off relatively small. I thought it waa a bug bite, but it grew and became painful to touch. What is it?

I have this large bump that started off relatively small. I thought it waa a bug bite, but it grew and became painful to touch. What is it?

Tender bump: This may have originally been an insect bite or an inclusion cyst, but it now is inflamed or irritated enough to be tender. Is there associated redness which would raise the possibility of infection? In any event I recommend that you be examined by a general surgeon for diagnosis and treatment which may include incision and drainage if deemed advisable. In the meantime apply hot (not too hot)soaks. ...Read more

I have always been taller than my friends but this past summer most have all grew taller than me. Do you think I will get a growth spurt soon?

I have always been taller than my friends but this past summer most have all grew taller than me. Do you think I will get a growth spurt soon?

Hard to say: Growth is pre-programmed into your genes and while some males are done growing at 17 some will continue into their early 20's. A single x-ray of your wrist and hand can be assessed for open growth centers, which would correlate with more growth, while closing or fused growth centers would mean you are done. ...Read more

What do you suggest if I am 16 5'2 in height I was premature as a baby, I was like 4'5 at 6 and barely grew since then. Height by age 21 at least?

That's a difficult..: ..question to answer and depends on lots of different factors, like your parents' heights, your growth curve to-date, pubertal stage, etc. If your height bothers you, you're worried about it, or it's affecting your self-esteem or self-image, then you should see your pediatrician about it. They can give you a better estimate of your height potential and what might or might not be done about it. ...Read more

My son is 5 month and 3 week s old his head circumfrence is 41.6 CM only since his 4 month check his head circumfrence grew only 1.1 CM is it normal?

Possibly: Head circumference increases most in the first 3 months of life and slows from month 4 on wards. We usually plot this on a graph which alerts the doctor of any deviation. Let your pediatrician check the graph at baby's next check up. ...Read more

I never know what to believe online. Has anybody had patients who actually grew noticably taller @ 40? Can't find online what possibly could cause it.

Growth in the 40s: This can be due to a rare disease called acromegaly, other features include enlargement of the jaw, hands and feet, it needs about 10 years to be noticed, other features hypertension, diabetes, joints problems and carpal tunnel syndrome.
the cause of this disease is usually a tiny benign tumor in the pituitary, and diagnosed by blood test and possible imaging of the brain ...Read more

My daughter will be 12 in a month. Is below avg in ht and wt, 4ft 8.5 in, 30kg. She grew 2.5 inches in last year. How to diagnose any growth problem?

Consult your Dr.: Drs will usually keep track of growth on a chart. The numbers you list show your daughter growing at a normal rate from 11 to 12 between the 10 & 25% lines on cdc charts. The weight is @ 3%. If your child has maintained this growth chart position for most of her life, she may just be small. If she was taller than average & slowed, it could be a problem. A simple bone maturity x-ray could help decide. ...Read more
