What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is an enlargement of breasts in men due to changes in estrogen and testosterone hormone levels. The breasts become more prominent and often grow unevenly. Gynecomastia is common in adolescents; however, it can affect men of any age.
Often the condition resolves itself from a few months to a couple of years, but there are cases where the symptoms continue. Factors contributing to the persistent change include natural hormone changes, certain medications, recreational drugs, alcohol, health conditions, and some herbal products.
