Gynecomastia, or “man boobs” as they are commonly referred to are is a swelling of a man’s breast tissue. The condition can occur in both adult men and young boys. Research suggests this condition is caused by hormonal imbalances, particularly with both estrogen and testosterone. There are other causes that may cause this condition to develop over a man’s life, such as environmental or health related reasons. Gynecomastia, or “man boobs” are generally not considered a serious medical condition. However, this condition may cause significant personal anxiety regarding one’s physical appearance. It can often be very embarrassing for men to have “man boobs”, and can have a negative effect on one’s self-esteem. Almost 1 in 4 men between the ages of 40-80 years of age suffer from this problem.
There are numerous ways in which Gynecomastia may be treated. These include, exercise and general weight loss, testosterone replacement medications, or invasive surgery.
In younger men, the condition usually resolves itself on its own, however in some cases, the condition persists into a man’s life. There are some available medications that may be prescribed to help reduce the production of estrogen in a man’s body, which sometimes can help reduce the size of the man’s breast. In most cases, these medications do not fully address the problem, or work at all.
For many men the above noted ways to address this problem is not appropriate, and can simply end of living with this embarrassing condition. Not being able to wear desired clothing, due to the bulginess and obvious enlarged breast region underneath, is the most common concern among men.
