Hello IndahLarazatiz-kkrai, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
A person's height is influenced by many things like because of heredity or genetic that is in accordance with the height of the parents, nutrition, gender, exercise habits or physical activity. The body usually stops growing when it is 14-16 years old for women and 16-20 years for men.
For the age of 12 years the body will usually still gain weight especially when puberty. Lung cancer is not related to a person's height growth. However, it is necessary to clarify the diagnosis of lung cancer, have you ever consulted a doctor for complaints of lung cancer? To gain weight, you must increase the frequency of your food, choose healthy foods with a balanced nutritional content, it is also advisable to drink water after eating to prevent bloating.
You are also advised to consult with a doctor because you need to find out the real cause of your complaint and a physical examination or laboratory examination or epiphial plate X-ray is needed to assess whether the bone is still able to grow or not.
Here are some things you can do to help increase your height, among others:
