Men with enlarged male breasts, or gynecomastia often avoid the pool or other places where they are forced to go shirtless in public, sometimes missing out on outdoor activities becauseof their embarrassment. A male breast reduction, or gynecomastia, could change a man’s life.
Today, almost half of all men have excess glandular tissue and/or excess localized fat in one or both breasts. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, gynecomastia accounts for more than 65 percent of all male breast disorders.
The cause is unknown, in most cases. It can be an imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone. But diseases including certain endocrine disorders, tumors, and chronic diseases, heredity conditions, or certain drugs such as anti-depressants, blood-pressure medicines, marijuana, and steroids may also cause gynecomastia.
Some boys and men have fat on their chests that can make it look as though they have breasts. This is called pseudogynecomastia and may go away with diet or exercise. Some will need treatment for this, as these fat pockets can be resistant to the effects of lower caloric intake and working out. In comparison, true gynecomastia will not usually improve with diet and exercise.
Gynecomastia is not a serious medical problem but can cause pain. It can also cause embarrassment, particularly in young boys who may be teased. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, up to 65 percent of 14-year-old boys have enlarged breasts. This is largely due to the fluctuations in sex hormones that occur during puberty. The excess breast tissue usually disappears without treatment in two years in 75 percent of these boys, and within three years in 90 percent of them.
In older men, gynecomastia is often caused by decreased levels of the male sex hormone testosterone, which occurs with age. They can also experience an increase in body fat resulting in a rise in the ratio of estrogen to androgens, the male sex hormone.
