Steroids=bone growth ?
Hello! I'm new around here. I thought this would be the best place to answer this so here it goes..
I've read in another forum someone saying that his facial bones and other bones in general(wrists, etc..) have grown quite a bit after the use of steroids for over 4 years, from 19 to 23. I'd like to know if any of you ever noticed the same thing, any bone development at all? thanks
Ooops.. I think I posted this in the wrong place..

Most other steroids are related to testosterone, estrogen, or cortisol modulation which are not responsible for body structure growth.

If you ask this because you want to grow taller, then you need to get your head checked. That could be one of the dumbest things you could do to yourself. Seriously, google "acromegaly" and start reading. It is a process, that when starts to occur, cannot be reversed. You will end up looking like a cro-magnon freak.
IF (and this is a big if) you think that something is seriously wrong with you, your doctor could potentially prescribe you something which could end up being hGH. This would probably be in a very extreme case though, one where your body is being ravaged by a disease that is delaying growth or simply stunting your growth. Administration would be done in a highly controlled manner, quite unlike what you could do for yourself.
If you're not looking to use steroids/growth hormones to grow and are just asking out of curiosity, well you already have your answer.
Be smart. Stay safe.

Well first off thank you all for replying. I'm not wanting to grow taller but I'd like to have a more developed facial structure and also get stronger..
One thing I didn't understand,
"Seriously, google "acromegaly" and start reading. It is a process, that when starts to occur, cannot be reversed. You will end up looking like a cro-magnon freak."
I've read about that before and it's scary.. but what about all the people using steroids? they don't get acromegaly
I'm thinking about getting some supps like di arginine malate, I heard they can stimulate hgh release and the pump would be nice too.. what do you think?

I don't know how a steroid would make your bones grow. Your muscles yes, but bones? Arnold had pretty skinny wrist so does Ronnie and Jay. I think that is a myth.

Anabolic steriods or anabolic-androgenic steriods are used therapeutically in medicine to stimulate or influence bone growth, amongst others. This is why individuals that have not completed the physiological growth process (up to the age of 26 or so for males) should not use anabolic steriods, as abnormal bone alterations may occur.

anavar used to be used in children to accelerate bone and muscle growth. it is the only anabolic steroid i know of that has ever been used for that purpose.
Steroids increase bone . your friend, over the years, probably has experienced a significant increase in bone density, muscle growth, and tendon strength and size. The combination of the 3 are going to have the effect he mentioned.
Growth hormone obviously has a much more direct effect on bone growth (not the same as simple increase in density). Extensive or excessive use of growth hormone for substantial periods of time are known to cause changes in hands/feet/nail growth/facial features. Some are also predisposed to this.

It's been rumored that some steroids (namely, Dianabol) can cause joint growth, leading to such jaw lines as Andre the Giant's and Jay Cutler's.

Once the growth plates close bone will no longer grow in length but can continue to get thicker/denser.
