Patient

Q: Hey I have a condition called gynecomastia
I'm not fat I'm 21 years old 6'0 172 lbs well toned
Athletic built.
I have the puffy nipples and the hard glands in both chest
I was wondering if there is anyway I could get rid of it without surgery
I've been suffering with the abnormalities for about 7 years now I work out and don't have any chest fat. It looks normal when my nipples aren't puffy
