    Dear Rasha, thank you for your comment and I am sorry to learn of your worries about your son.  I am not a doctor but a medical journalist who also has acromegaly.  I don't feel qualified to advise you and feel you need to follow the advice of your son's endocrinologist, and if you are not satisfied with the  answers, to seek a second opinion.  Gigantism is very rare and being tall is not, especially when other members of the family are also tall.  I wish you luck and hope that you will soon have your mind put at rest.  Kind regards, Jon
