Gynecomastia (male breasts)

Gynecomastia, a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men, is common in men of any age. It can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity conditions, disease or the use of certain drugs.

Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair your self confidence. Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition.

Gynecomastia is characterized by:

  • Excess localized fat
  • Excess glandular tissue development
  • A combination of both excess fat and glandular tissue
  • Gynecomastia may be present unilaterally (one breast) or bilaterally (both breasts)

"You took an interest in my life. You cared about who I was and you respected my individuality, these are precious virtues. THANKS it seems a small word for all you've done during this last stressful month. You are so very rare and special because you were there when I needed you with your compassion and gentle understanding of my "problem"."
