What is gynaecomastia?

Gynaecomastia is a condition in which there is increased tissue in the male breast to create a less masculine shape. It is a bodily reaction to an imbalance of circulating hormones and can become a source of great aesthetic concern amongst suffers. Gynaecomastia first appears at puberty and can affect one or both breasts, often unevenly. It tends to become more prominent with weight gain and age. Gynaecomastia has colloquially become known as male breasts, or ‘moobs’.
