At some point in your life, someone has probably shared with you a little nugget of wisdom about how our nose and our ears never stop growing.

Which body part never grows after birth?
The only part of the human body which does not grow in size from birth to death is the innermost ear ossicle.
The ossicle is 3 mm is size when a person is born. As a person grows or develops, this ossicle does not grow in size.
However, thinning of the ossicles has been heard of. In fact, it is the thinning of the stapes or the malfunction of the stapes that result in ear problems and deafness.
