Gynaecomastia is the medical term for when a man, or teenage boy, has enlarged breast tissue (also known as “Man Boobs”).
It is not uncommon for Gynecomastia, or Pseudogynecomastia, to occur during infancy and puberty, however this can also occur in adult men and can be due to a hormone imbalance, or an association with certain medical conditions.
There are many reasons why you may develop Gynecomastia, including:
- Due to certain medications
- In some rare cases, it can also be caused by a disorder or disease

How do you know if you have Gynecomastia?
It requires a medical examination to decide this and sometimes an ultrasound scan to be sure.
Can Gynecomastia go away with exercise?
The fat will certainly reduce with exercise, but the glandular tissue will have to be removed with surgery – there is no other method of removing this.
Will Gynecomastia worsen as you get older?
Over time, if this condition is not corrected the appearance tends to get worse. Alongside that if you gain weight this will also cause the breasts to grow larger.
How many men are affected by this?
Up to 70% of boys in early to mid-puberty experience gynecomastia because of the hormonal changes that occur during this time. There is also up to 65% of middle-aged and older men who are also affected.
I have a lump on my chest- is this Gynecomastia?
Always see your GP if your chest area is painful or there is an obvious lump. Sometimes, the lump may need to be removed. Gynaecomastia is not related to breast cancer, but if you’re worried about breast swelling, see a GP.
