Chest fat or Gynecomastia, what to do ?

I m 20 years old, with 88 Kilos and 186 High. I have had chest fat or gynecomastia (don t know which one) for 4 years now. there is a soft spongy area under my nipple region. i don t know whether it is gynecomastia or not. i have been working out for 1 year still no change in my chest region. I am a fresh student at Medicine school now. my friends are teasing me, its like a gun shot through my chest. please suggest a cure. I don t intend to do surgery as it is not possible for me to get the cash for it, I don t do drugs at all and neither alcohol cause I m a Muslim, I used Asthma Inhaler since I was 2 years old, non of my family had the same problem, my doctor gave me AndroGel I m using it for 3 weeks now with no effect at my chest, and yeah I forget to mention that my muscles won t grow and I don t know why.

Hi: I suppose you have gynecomastia. Dont use androgel before any hormonal evaluation as it can cause more harm than good. I may suggest to get your hormonal tests done. For further details and contacts log on to

Thanks for replay
I did some tests and my Endocrinologist said there was a slight increase of my Estrogen
I'm using androgel for 3 weeks now but without any effects my chest didn't become smaller and my muscles too.
I forgot to tell you that when I get colder it shrinks
