To understand some of the issues that surround gynecomastia, it is necessary to briefly consider the main causes and symptoms.
Gynecomastia can be described as the abnormal presence of mammary tissue in the male chest area giving the impression of female breasts. This can happen at any stage in the life of a male sufferer but it is usually more common during adolescence and in old age. In both cases, it is generally thought to be an abnormal condition associated with either a metabolic disorder or a hormone imbalance.
In the instances of adolescent gynecomastia, it can be the cause of considerable emotional stress but it has been noted that in the majority of such cases, the condition tends to disappear naturally over a period of several years. It is believed, however, that 30% of boys who develop gynecomastia in adolescence will retain this condition for most of their adult lives if it is not treated early on with some form of hormone therapy.
Adolescent gynecomastia is generally attributed to either some degree of sex hormone imbalance or undue sensitivity of the breast tissue to those hormones (i.e. hormone level is considered as normal but the breast tissue is over-sensitive to the hormone influence.)
It should be noted that the drugs Furosemide and Digoxin account for approximately 3-10% of all gynecomastia cases.
The different variants of gynecomastia that occur can result in their own specific symptoms. Puffy nipples are one of the most common, gynecomastia symptoms. This is the result of excess mammary tissue being concentrated, almost entirely, under the areola and sometimes extending slightly beyond that area.
Symptoms of glandular gynecomastia occur almost exclusively with athletes and bodybuilders who use anabolic steroids. This happens because the body converts excess testosterone, created by steroid use, into estrogens which then leads to increased growth of mammary tissue in the chest area.
With adolescent suffers of gynecomastia, the condition is thought to be generally hereditary. It is extremely common in 30-60% of all adolescent boys aged between 12-14 years. As stated previously, this type of gynecomastia will usually naturally disappear over a 2-4 years period. Adult gynecomastia is probably the most common form and symptoms are similar to that of the adolescent sufferer. Many adults who have the condition usually developed it in adolescence.
The condition known as pseudogynecomastia is not really considered to be gynecomastia as such because it is essentially caused by excessive fat in the chest area as a result of over eating and a poor diet. And in the case of asymmetrical/unilateral gynecomastia, usually only one breast is enlarged or one is unevenly malformed than the other.
Finally, in cases of severe gynecomastia, the male breasts are usually quite enlarged and excessive sagging skin is often evident. This is quite common in elderly males as skin elasticity decreases with age.
For some cases, gynecomastia surgery can be recommended to remove excess tissue and then reshape the chest area.
