Does your nose ever stop growing?


2 Answers

No, cartilage - that's the plastic-like stuff in ears and noses - cartilage continues to grow until the day you die. Not only does cartilage grow, but the earlobes elongate from gravity. And that makes ears look even larger.

Bones stop growing after puberty and muscle and fat cells also stop dividing. But cartilage, that's the plastic-like stuff in ears and noses, continues to grow until the day you die.
