Gynecomastia is a condition, where males form breast tissue. The tissue is usually located directly under the nipple. Gynecomastia can occur on one or both sides of the chest. Some people who are overweight appear to have Gynecomastia, without actually having the condition.
Your breasts may appear swollen or tender, on one or both sides.
Causes of Gynecomastia include:
In most cases, no Gynecomastia treatment is necessary, unless your conditions are due to a certain disease, infection or tumor. Gynecomastia surgery is rarely required.
Your doctor or healthcare provider may order a mammogram to look at the breast tissue, to make sure there is no cancer or disease that may have caused this.
