Stretch Marks Diagnosis
medical exam is necessary to confirm you have stretch marks.
With naked eyes, the
marks can be seen on your skin, especially in your abdomen, thighs, breasts, flanks, buttocks. Sometimes they are
also found in the armpits (underarm) and in the lower back.
If your doctor suspects that your stretch
marks are related to any medical condition, he would recommend blood tests and/or imaging tests to detect and
confirm the primary cause of the stretch marks. This, however, barely happens. In over 95% cases of stretch marks,
they are not complications or signs related to other diseases.
