A:   Thank you for your question. Gynecomastia can be caused hormonal imbalances in males, which lead to the enlargement of breast tissue. This can be observed in conditions such as delayed puberty, or other endocrine illnesses which cause decreased levels of testosterone. We do not recommend that you wait but go to your doctor to have a full assessment performed. You will need to have blood drawn in order to measure you hormone levels to see what is the cause of your gynecomastia. Once diagnosed, you can be give medication to treat this condition. Please see your doctor.

Thank you for consulting
