Patient : Dear Doctor, I'm a nineteen year old male from Asia. What I would like to know is, is it possible for someone of my sex to grow taller after the age of eighteen? I've read multiple articles, but almost over half of them had different opinions. I'm 5'7 and I'd very much like to add two or three more inches to my height. After college graduation, I'd like to pursue a career in the United States and I don't want to come home every day depressed about my colleagues frequently mentioning my height.
Thank you for your time.
