Understanding gynaecomastia

Gynaecomastia is a medical condition that causes the development of excess breast tissue in males. It can occur at any age and may affect one or both breasts. The condition is often caused by hormonal imbalances, medication side effects, or underlying health issues. Identifying gynaecomastia is the first step towards seeking appropriate treatment.

Signs and symptoms

  • Breast enlargement: The most obvious sign of gynaecomastia is the enlargement of breast tissue. This can result in a noticeable increase in breast size and volume.
  • Tenderness or pain: Gynaecomastia can be accompanied by tenderness or pain in the affected breast area. This discomfort can range from mild to severe.
  • Asymmetry: Gynaecomastia can affect one breast more than the other, leading to breast asymmetry.
  • Psychological impact: Gynaecomastia can have a significant psychological impact, causing embarrassment and reduced self-confidence.
