No: You are as tall as you will ever be at your age. There are many different types of body configurations which are most likely inherited from your parents.

I've got a really long, skinny neck and I would like to make it appear shorter. Are there any exercises I can do?

I've got a really long, skinny neck and I would like to make it appear shorter. Are there any exercises I can do?

You could: Focus on movements like shrugs, which will build up the muscles at the base of your neck/shoulders (trapezius). This will "shorten" the appearance of your neck, but based on your name, which appears to be that of a woman, it isn't an aesthetic appearance which is considered "classically" desirable in a woman. It will provide much more "manly" characteristics/appearance. ...Read more

How long can neck nodes stay enlarged with no signs of sickness? Have had several swollen for 5 months with no decrease. Dr seems uninterested

Ask for diagnosis: Palpable neck nodes that don't go away and large enough to be consider pathologic should be a concern. They can stay that way without disease for some time but certain diseases can do that, unfortunately like some opportunistic infections, mycobacteria but could be a manifestation of other inflammation including aids and malignancy. I can't correlate with the chest ct as history does not say. ...Read more

Nodes: Nodes can be enlarged due to a variety of different conditions. The most common being a reaction to infection. Most of these resolve on there own in a short time.

My neck is longer than the normal people. Are there any ways to shorten it? Exercise or?

Accept who you are: No, there is nothing to make it shorter. Some other people are complaining that their necks are too short and they want to make them longer. The point is that
the grass on the other side is always greener. Try to accept the difference--embrace yourself and accept who you are. Your family and friends love you for who you are-does not matter how long your neck is. But what matters is how kind you're. ...Read more

If you had surgically correctable scoliosis then that would lengthen your spinal column. ...Read more
