I'm 6'2 and I'm in stage 3.3 in puberty how tall do you think I could be and I'm a male and I'm a active althete?

Stage 3.3?: Let's assume that you're truly in Stage Three of puberty, which makes you somewhat of a "late bloomer", then you could expect to continue to add up to 4" in height. However, if you're beyond this stage, the estimate for future growth will be less than that. In general, your height can be estimated like this: Mother's height + 5" + father's height, divided by 2.

Weight loss: If you are constantly losing weight that is not good. 1st you need to eat healthy balanced diet with small frequent meals and snacks every 3-4 hours, see your doctor for a complete physical exam, request a referral to endocrinologist & a dietitian & hopefully they figure out why you're loosening weight. Best wishes.

I'm 17 and I haven't hit puberty yet. I'm a male and I have no physical development except two or three hair on genital area, I got hit on my testes befor?

Consult endo or urol: Patient gave age as 100-years-old. If 17 & testes now of adult size might just be delayed puberty. Worth seeing an endocrinologist or pediatric urologist. Should have blood levels of testosterone, luteinizing (lh) & follicular stimulating hormone (fsh) levels checked.

How serious is stage 3 prostate cancer in a 61yr old male and is Chemo effective? What does stage three mean? Survival? Spreading? Please advise.

How serious is stage 3 prostate cancer in a 61yr old male and is Chemo effective? What does stage three mean? Survival? Spreading? Please advise.

Prostate CA staging: Stage III means the cancer has spread out of the capsule or into the seminal vesicles, the glands that sit right on top of the prostate. Treatment would consist of anti androgen therapy, a shot, and radiation. There is always the chance the cancer could spread so a bone scan and CT is done to check and to also use as a baseline for the future.

Doctors can you explain how could robert wadlow keep on growing even after his puberty? He was growing @ of 2-3 inches every year ever after 18

His pituitary: Gland was enlarged and produced an abnormal amount of growth hormone that kept him growing. Many males continue to grow into their 20s normally....His was sadly not normal and he dies at the age of 22.

I reached puberty 3 years early, will I stop growing?

I reached puberty 3 years early, will I stop growing?

Hard to say: For some puberty runs its course in 3-5 years and others it may take 4-7. Often, you will follow the pattern of one or both parents. An xray of your wrist and hand can be analysed for growth plates and see if your growth will stop soon or continue for years.

Read online claims of adults way past puberty growing taller. Any truth to that? Can a 40YO grow nearly 3 inches out of the blue w/o any explanation?

Acromegaly: Acromegaly is a condition caused by a benign pituitary tumor which secretes growth hormone. It can cause growth of the hands, feet, and increasing height in middle age. The diagnosis could be made by an endocrinologist.

What are the stages of female puberty?

Puberty: Girls usually have breast development first, approximately 2 years before they start their periods. The fastest growth time is the 2 years before and 2 years after the beginning of menses. After breast development (which can progress gradually), girls will develop underarm hair and pubic hair. They will start getting more curves, gaining some body fat (which is essential to adequate estrogen).
