Gynecomastia is the term used for enlarged male breasts. It is a very common condition in men, affecting a significant percentage of men.Breast hypertrophy, or abnormal glandular breast overgrowth, afflicts as many as 65% of adolescent males and 10-15% of adult males. Although there are medical causes of gynecomastia, most commonly there is no known cause nor any associated medical condition associated with male breast enlargement.
Usually, male breast enlargement is due to excess fat in the male breasts. This is what the term pseudogynecomastia means. Pseudogynecomastia is actually far more common than true gynecomastia.
Obesity is the main cause of pseudogynecomastia. Fat cells, especially those in large numbers, convert the male hormone testosterone into female hormone estrogen, which stimulates breast growth.
Although extremely common, gynecomastia is often a very considerable cosmetic and emotional concern for men who have it.
Breast tissue naturally grows in all adolescent boys during normal development as a result of hormonal changes. It is estimated that as many as 65% of teenage boys experience enlarged breast tissue or Gynecomastia. For the fortunate majority of these boys, Pubertal Gynecomastia resolves in a matter of months, or with the end of adolescence. For a significant portion, however – an estimated 10-15%, the symptoms remain through adult life.
Unlike Pubertal Gynecomastia, adult-onset Gynecomastia can be caused by a range of things. The potential causes of Gynecomastia in adults include some common medications, Anabolic steroids, herbal or growth supplements, natural or synthetic estrogen hormone derivatives, marijuana, alcohol abuse, chronic liver failure, and renal failure. There are also some tumors that secrete female hormones which stimulate breast gland growth in males. With aging some men experience a deficiency in Testosterone levels which leads to the development of Gynecomastia. Therefore, itisimportant that newly recognized adult-onset Gynecomastia be investigated in order to rule out possible serious underlying causes.
