What is gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia causes swelling in men’s chest areas, making it appear as if they have enlarged, feminine breasts. This condition can affect one breast or both breasts. While scientists have not determined how or why gynecomastia happens, studies show that the use of steroids, hormonal changes (especially during puberty), heredity, diabetes, certain medications, alcohol, and marijuana may contribute to enlarged male breast tissue.
Having confidence in your appearance
As a man, you deserve to feel confident about your body. Social stigmas make it difficult for men with gynecomastia to feel masculine and strong. They may even experience teasing and laughter from those around them.
Adolescent and teenage boys, for example, may be bullied during puberty. Not only does this result in embarrassment and low-self esteem, but it can transform into larger concerns such as depression, loss of self-worth, and thoughts of suicide. Do not allow an enlarged breast tissue area to ruin your life.
