In brief: Very unlikely

There are separate growth charts for untreated girls with turner's.
The charts clearly show shorter final adultheight compared to regular charts. In fact, every short girl with no other signs/symptoms of turner's, should be evaluated to rule out turner's.

In brief: No

Girls with tuener syndrome have poor growth and HGH treatment has shown an impressive improvement in growth.

In brief: Unlikely

One of the primary effects of xo turners leads to "streak gonads" or ovaries that will not produce hormones in a quantity that allows development of secondary sex changes, including breast development.
Most turners will top out at 4'10-5' with "jabs" and may not get there without. If the form is mosaic (xo/xx) or other varient they may make some hormone but that is usually evident early.
