What is gynaecomastia?

Gynaecomastia is also known as ‘man boobs’. It is (usually) unwanted breast tissue that grows or develops in men. It can be present from puberty, or it can develop later in life.

What causes it?

It has a variety of different causes. It can be genetic or it can be induced later in life. Some men have a hormone imbalance (ask me about tests for this) and for some it may be due to medication, diet or weight gain.

What can be done about it?

Many men are turning to surgery, but there are other things that can be done first. Simply losing weight can help, and addressing any hormonal imbalance between oestrogen and testosterone. Ask me for ways we can do this.

Does medication help?

Treatment for gynaecomastia is not available on the NHS, but there are a number of things that can help. Ask me today and I will email you my simple fact sheet on how treatment can help you.
