In brief: Perhaps

First, you must find out if the growth is truly excessive or is it constitutional.
The best person to consult on these issues is a pediatric endocrinologist. They can order the appropriate tests to determine if there is really a problem.

Do you mean excessive height growth? Or excessive weight growth.
? If its height, see an endocrinologist. If its weight see your pediatrician.
