    Are you thinking about Gigantism? This is when a person has excessive growth and height, much above normal. It is caused by an overproduction of human growth hormone.

    As the above poster mentioned, Gigantism is the disease known to cause excessive “growing.” Generally, this disease occurs during childhood. Children will grow at an excessive rate due to a large influx of growth hormones, commonly associated with a tumor. Symptoms can include the following:

    1. Delayed puberty

    2. Double Vision and Excessive Headaches

    3. Incrased sweating

    4. Irregular periods (menstruation)

    5. Thickening of the facial features, including a prominant jaw

    The list goes on and on.
