Well, if our noses and our ears keep growing throughout our lives, it must be at an incredibly slow rate. I find this one hard to believe because I can't imagine how that works. My nose and ears appear to have been the same size for the past 45 years at least.

Diane Thompson, Like it or not, it's true. It happens at a snail's pace, but it happens nonetheless. Like children growing up, you don't notice day to day differences, but for someone who's been absent for a year, the growth is noticeable. It is the same for your nose and ears. It occurs more slowly, so it is even more difficult to see.

Andoy Angeles, anecdotal evidence has no value unless there is verifiable statistical data to back it up.

Diane Thompson, it is because noses and ears are mostly cartilage, not bone or fat or muscle. Bones stop growing after puberty and muscle and fat cells also stop dividing but cartilage continues to grow until we die. Some other good news is that gravity also makes earlobes elongate, making ears look larger.

It does and especially after age 65! The older you get, the more they grow, My Maternal Grandmother lived to be 97! Her ears were ao big! They were over 4 inches long and her mose too! He face and hair and head, were shrinking.

I have noticed noses on older, (that includes myself), people seem to fill out and if you look at a picture of a young man and another picture of the man much later in life, his head appears larger. I don't know if the head has actually grown or if it just filled out from fat deposits that accumulate as we age but there is definitely a change

I agree with you Ms. Diane about the nose and ears! If they kept growing throughout our lives then we'd all be some funny looking people walking around with big noses and big ears! Lol..
