Gynecomastia comes from the Greek terms “gyne” which means woman and “mastos” which means breast. In medical terms, gynecomastia means abnormally large breasts in men. Commonly found in young teenagers, gynecomastia typically resolves in the majority of cases. For the 10% of cases that do not disappear naturally, severe psychological consequences follow, such as feelings of embarrassment, shame, and anxiety.


Causes of gynecomastia can include steroids, obesity, tumors, drug abuse, certain syndromes, liver disease, and many medications. However, most of the time, workups don’t find a cause. If gynecomastia persists and fails to resolve after a long period of time, we can perform surgery. As most physicians consider this condition cosmetic, don’t count on getting insurance to cover the cost of the surgery.
