Enlarged Breasts in Men

Gynecomastia is an increase in the amount of breast gland tissue in newborn boys, boys going through puberty, and older men.  Gynecomastia may be a result of changes in levels of testosterone, estrogen (which is normally present in small amounts in males), or other hormones. It may have other causes or be a side effect of certain drugs. Gynecomastia can produce pain in the breasts and lead to embarrassment. It may go away on its own but medication or surgery may be required in more severe cases. If you’re concerned about this problem, talk to your doctor and our compounding pharmacist about your options.
