Gynaecomastia

Gynaecomastia (also referred to as man boobs / moobs) is a condition that causes an enlargement of the male breast tissue. The sizes may vary from a small amount of excess tissue around the nipples through to larger, more prominent breasts.

There are many different causes for Gynaecomastia including obesity, hormonal imbalance, age, side effects of medication, health issues and lifestyle factors such as illegal drug usage and excess alcohol consumption.

Gynaecomastia may result in tenderness of the breasts and most commonly affects teenage boys and older men.

Often affecting confidence and self-esteem, many men seek treatment for Gynaecomastia to improve body image.
