Can I have a wrist X-ray at the age of 17 after puberty for height growth ?

Can I have a wrist X-ray at the age of 17 after puberty for height growth ?

You can but...: If you can find a doctor willing to order this you can but there is little point in doing so. Girls stop growing 2-3 years after their periods start; this is when the growth plates close. After this further growth is impossible. If it's been 3 years or more since puberty the x-ray will undoubtedly show that your growth plates are closed. You need to accept that you have reached full height. Sorry! ...Read more

Till what age does wrist circumference increase? 20, wrist size 6.7 inches,height 173 cm, ankle 8.9 inches.

Bone growth in males can vary quite a bit anywhere usually between 14 and 21. Muscle and tendon size vary with use. Even elderly patients can have increase in wrist circumference due to arthritis. ...Read more

What does small and frail wrists indicate? Does it mean im still growing? No one in my family has tiny wrists except for me and my sister shes 12

What does small and frail wrists indicate? Does it mean im still growing? No one in my family has tiny wrists except for me and my sister shes 12

Variant of normal: Small children have small wrists, but if they appear frail it is possible that the maturation is delayed. This can be determined by an x-ray of the wrist to assess the age of the wrist bones relative to your age. If there is a significant delay, a referral to a pediatric endocrinologist is appropriate. The frailness can also mean that the long bones need to be x-rayed. ...Read more

I have these small flesh colored bumps on my wrists and they come and go but they never go away completely . What's the issue ? Any solutions ?

1 look = 1000 words: It is really hard to say from this text. A picture can possibly tell more, but often they have to be seen with the human eye. It could be some type of contact dermatitis if they come and go. Warts can appear as flesh color bumps, but usually come and don't go. The best plan is to have a doctor who knows skin problems look at them. ...Read more

Small lump in wrist in my vein from i.V what is it?

Phlebitis: The vein used for the IV has a thrombus secondary to the irritation of the catheter placed into the vein along with the solution instilled. Usually, this is tender to touch, firm, and may travel up the vein. Most of the time this is self-limiting, and local heat will resolve the pain.
