Gynecomastia is a condition where men experience abnormal breast development, often due to age, weight gain, genetics, or a hormonal imbalance. It affects approximately 40 to 60 percent of males and can be a source of embarrassment, causing many men and adolescents to become self-conscious.
What Is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a common condition that typically peaks during puberty. And while gynecomastia usually resolves itself with age, it can persist into adulthood and even worsen. When this is the case, gynecomastia rarely responds to lifestyle changes such as increased exercise and following a healthy diet.
