Homeopath Dr. Swati Ramkumar's  Response
Hello,
Gynaecomastia is the abnormal development of breasts in males. It could be associated with disease , hormonal imbalance or metabolic disorders. Certain drugs might also cause gynaecomastia. Obesity needs to be ruled out. The underlying cause,extent of involvement needs to be found out before treating.
Visit your family physician who can examine you and guide you accordingly. Homeopathy could help you to a certain extent, but the scope can be decided only after thorough examination and history taking.

There is no need to opt for surgery as surgery is the last resort. I recommend you to have dashmoola arisht with punarnava guggul 2 tabs. and one tab. of medhohar guggul bd.

Hi Welcome to healthcaremagic.com

If the Gynecomastia is present for more than 12 months, there will be lot of fibrous tissue in the breast so medicines usually do not help.

If there is treatable cause like testosterone deficiency, correcting the cause will correct the problem.

Clomiphene, an antiestrogen, can be used at a dose of 50-100 mg per day for up to 6 months. Approximately 50% of patients achieve partial reduction in breast size.

Tamoxifen, an estrogen antagonist, is effective for recent-onset and tender
gynecomastia when used in doses of 10-20 mg twice a day. Up to 80% of patients report partial to complete resolution.

However the problem can be best managed by surgical means.

Regards Dr. Jagdish
