  • Possibly a tumor of the pituitary gland (in the brain) RARE though

  • I'm sure there are lots of reasons. You'll have to let us know what her doctor says.

  • Is she showing signs of early development? I've read that it's happening more in the last few years, possibly because of growth hormones in meat and dairy prducts, especially milk.
