Brief Answer: Considerations Detailed Answer: Hello & thank you for submitting your question. As men age, they can experience a condition called gynecomastia where the natural breast tissues that men have become more sensitive and growth-responsive to hormones produced during the aging process. Regarding specifically areolar enlargement, this would be a matter addressed best with a physical examination by your physician, as well as an overall check up. Your doctor can assess your symptoms in the context of your overall physical state of health and even can consider checking hormone levels, if deemed necessary. Thank you again & I hope this was helpful. Take care, Dr G
