Is your child tall for their age?
Do you see breast bud development,
testicle and penis enlargement, or pubic hair?

It could be central precocious puberty, or CPP. Before the age of 8 in girls and 9 in boys, these could be signs of CPP. CPP can have complications, including a shorter predicted adult height.

CPP can be treated. Only a qualified healthcare provider can diagnose CPP and help you find a treatment that is appropriate for your child. The sooner you know for sure, the sooner your child can get the treatment they need.

Getting a diagnosis as soon as possible is important

See Karen Klein, MD, pediatric endocrinologist, discuss next steps in diagnosing CPP.
