Dear Heather, Your question really refers to "growth of the skeleton," since some other kinds of growth can of course go on throughout your life - muscles, fat, earlobes, noses. The growth of the skeleton generally continues until about age 18 for girls and about 21 for boys. But there is a huge amount of variation from person to person and family to family. Some people are as tall as they will be by their early teens and some continue further into their 20's. Hope this helps, Paul Odgren, Ph.D. Dept. of Cell Biology U. Mass. Med. School Worcester
