Tests and diagnosis

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Stretch marks are typically diagnosed based on an examination of your skin and a review of your medical history. Your doctor will ask questions about your signs and symptoms, medications you're taking, and any known medical conditions.

If your doctor suspects there is an increase in your cortisol production, he or she may recommend additional tests.
