Are you a man with a little extra something in the chest department? And keep this in mind - we are not talking about superhero pecs.

What you have is Gynecomastia which is commonly called “man boobs”.

Worry not, our experts here at Mykare Health will help you deal with this peculiar surprise from the universe.

Let's explore more about gynecomastia and why Mykare Health would be the best choice for you to deal with it.

What Is Gynecomastia?

First thing first, let’s understand what gynecomastia is. It is the enlargement or overdevelopment of breast tissues in men or boys.

This makes the breast grow larger or sometimes unevenly.

Though gynecomastia is not a serious condition, this may make you feel embarrassed and body conscious. Sometimes there might also be pain in your breasts.

What Are The Causes of Gynecomastia?

Curious to know what causes gynecomastia? Here you go.

  • Hormonal Imbalance - Though your body produces both Testosterone and Oestrogen, it is the former that should be in higher levels in a man’s body. But when there is an imbalance in these hormones, it results in growth of breast tissue and thus breasts.

  • Obesity or being overweight can result in an increased level of Oestrogen, which in turn results in the growth of breast tissue. Excess fat in overweight people can also cause the enlargement of breast tissue.

  • In newborn babies, oestrogen passes from mother through placenta, which can cause gynecomastia. But this is just temporary and in a few weeks it will disappear.

  • If you are a boy going through puberty, your hormone levels vary. So when your testosterone levels drop, the oestrogen in your body can cause your breast to enlarge. Don’t worry, most teenage boys experience this and as you get older it usually clears up.

  • If you are an older man your body produces less testosterone. You will also have excess body fat. Both this elevates your oestrogen level which results in the growth of breast tissue.

  • Some medicines, for eg, anti ulcer drugs or drugs for heart disease can cause Gynecomastia

  • Consumption of Cannabis, anabolic steroids and other illegal drugs

  • Over consumption of alcohol

  • Kidney failure, liver disease or some other health conditions

  • Lumps or Infection in the testicles

  • Klinefelter Syndrome

Does Exercise Help Reduce Your Man Boobs?

Exercise will help you reduce extra fat in your body. You can exercise to reduce the general body fat and to help increase the size of the pectoral muscles.

It only reduces the appearance of gynecomastia, but it won't have much effect on dense glandular tissue brought on by gynecomastia.

Surgery will be the more suitable option to completely get rid of gynecomastia.
