Gynecomastia refers to the enlargement of breast tissue in males. The growth of male breast tissue doesn’t typically pose any risk to your health. However, some individuals would rather undergo a reduction due to personal preference in appearance.
Changes in hormones, certain medications, and recreational drug use are some of the leading factors of gynecomastia. It is often caused by changes in levels of the female hormone, estrogen, and the male hormone, testosterone.
It may start as a lump beneath the nipple, the breasts often grow unevenly. It is best to see a healthcare provider for a diagnosis.
You are healthy and do not have any conditions that could increase any risk of surgical complications. You are concerned or bothered with your appearance.
