In brief: Odd statement

At a listed age of 48, you are long since stopped growing unless you mean wide or emotionally.
Linear growth is under the control of growth centers in the long bones & vertebrae. There are dozens of these in the bones of your wrist/hand & an x-ray of this area can document growth center status.If closed, further linear growth is not possible.

In brief: Xrays

The epiphyseal plates will close when you are done growing; this can be seen on xrays.
