There is nothing to worry. The breast development in male is due to overactive female hormones. There will also be low hair growth in your chest area.
Why should you think of suicide or get depressed? You need to find a solution if there is a problem. There are plenty for this problem.
Best and healthy alternative is rigorous exercise to the chest area which tones the muscles and keep it intact. Consult a psychologist for counseling. I can help you online if you desire so.
Good luck.
