What is Gynaecomastia or Man Boob/Male Breast, its cause and symptoms
Gynecomastia is a body condition in men and boys when the breasts swell and become abnormally large in size. The male breast glands are not noticeable unlike females. Breast enlargement may occur in new-born babies, boys during puberty, and in older men. In newborn babies and teenagers, this condition gets normal by the time they grow up. However, this may occur again at a later age. Though most people think that it is caused by weight gain or obesity, it has nothing to do with that. Even if men lose weight, this would have no effect on Gynecomastia. Doing exercise or losing weight will not reduce the breast tissue in gynecomastia.
As per studies, 70% boys experience this during puberty and it gets normal by the time they get older. This condition is caused by natural changes in estrogen (a “female hormone” that men also have) and testosterone.Infants can sometimes have short-term gynecomastia because of their mother’s estrogen remains in blood for some period after birth.
This condition may also occur in middle-aged and older me due to various reasons including aging or even because of some medicines such as Antibiotics, Heart medicines, Anti-anxiety drugs, AIDS treatments, Tricyclic antidepressants, Chemotherapy and Drugs that treat heartburn. Marijuana, alcohol and drugs like heroin, amphetamines, and steroids can cause it. Sometimes it also occurs sue to another health problem, such as overactive thyroid, kidney disease, or a tumor on one of the glands that controls your hormones.
