Gynecomastia is an enlargement of the glandular tissue of the male breast. During infancy, puberty, and in middle-aged to older men, gynecomastia can be common. Gynecomastia must be distinguished from pseudogynecomastia or lipomastia, which refers to the presence of fat deposits in the breast area of obese men. True gynecomastia results from the growth of the glandular, or breast tissue, which is present in very small amounts in men.
Who gets gynecomastia?
Normally developing pubertal males may be at risk for gynecomastia that is part of the normal developmental process. Normal male infants also may have gynecomastia.
What are the signs and symptoms of gynecomastia?
The primary symptom of gynecomastia is an enlargement of the male breasts. As mentioned before, gynecomastia is the enlargement of glandular tissue rather than fatty tissue. It is typically symmetrical in a location with regard to the nipple and may have a rubbery or firm feel. Gynecomastia usually occurs on both sides but can be unilateral in some cases. The enlargement may be greater on one side even if both sides are involved. Tenderness and sensitivity may be present, although there is typically no severe pain.
Treatment of gynecomastia? Can it be cured?
Surgical removal is the only possible treatment to help restore a normal breast appearance.
Typically, gynecomastia is not associated with long-term problems.
