Discovering Ways To Reverse Gynecomastia

Aug 19, 2008
Many men pass through adolescence experiencing an enlargement of their breasts. It is quite normal because during that time, the hormones go through hectic changes, affecting their body systems and this is a consequence of it. As they grew older, it goes back to its original form. Unfortunately, about ten percent who experience this condition had to resort to different means just to get rid of man boobs.

Gynecomastia is a condition wherein there is an excessive breast tissue growth in the chest area of males. It may be physiologically due to an imbalance of hormones, specifically estrogen and testosterone during puberty. It may also be caused by several medications like steroids for building body mass, which contains hormones. These hormones may be converted to estrogen and thus lead to this condition. Other medications used to treat certain diseases can also cause the male breast to enlarge abnormally. Tumors can also secrete estrogen, which may also increase the size of the breasts. Breast exams are done to be able to rule out the possibility of having these tumors and finding it malignant or cancerous.

To reverse Gynecomastia, the underlying cause should first be identified as well as other symptoms. If it were a mild asymptomatic type of Gynecomastia, wherein the doctor detected it during your routine physical exam, then treatment is first given to the cause for the condition to remit. If it were physiological in nature, then let nature take its course and let the condition subside by itself. This is the normal scenario with male adolescents when they experience puberty. It is just the imbalanced hormones going through hectic changes within their system. It should remit after several weeks to an average of two years. A prolonged period with this condition signals another cause that may be more serious.

For Gynecomastia that is caused by disorders of the liver, hyperthyroidism or hypogonadism, the underlying diseases should first undergo therapy before Gynecomastia is reversed. The liver usually inactivates the estrogen found in the blood. A defective liver will not do this thus leading to a raise in estrogen levels, which in turn enhances the growth of the male breasts. Typically, if a man has man boobs or Gynecomastia conditions that links to these causes, surgery is required to remove the tissue and fat and reshape the man boobs so that they are formed the way a man boobs are suppose to look.
