Gynecomastia is the abnormal growth of breast tissue in males. It is also a self-esteem crusher. Big breasts can be a big blow to a man’s body image. There are things that they cannot do that flat-chested men won’t have any trouble doing just like taking off one’s shirt while on the beach. Even intimacy can become an uncomfortable event. Men with gynecomastia instead spend so much time hiding in their shells or playing cover-up just to conceal their boobs.

Gynecomastia affects a lot of teens and men every year. Since the condition involves the growth of breast tissue and not breast fat, it cannot be reversed with exercise and diet. Its most common cause is hormonal imbalance. Other conditions like malnutrition, liver disease, chronic renal failure, and hyperthyroidism can lead to gynecomastia. The abnormal growth of breast tissue may also be a side effect of certain medications or excessive consumption of alcohol. Twenty-five percent of these cases are idiopathic or have unknown causes.

Men with gynecomastia are encouraged to talk to their family and friends. It is also advisable to see a therapist or be part of a support group. Talking about the issue and being able to get it out of your system will ease some of the anxiety and depression that you feel. The cause of the condition will determine the intervention. For immediate results, it is best to undergo breast reduction for men. The surgical procedure involves the removal of excess breast tissue, resulting into a flatter and more masculine chest.
