Urologist 's  Response
Some enlargement of breast is often seen in pubertal boys which doesn't need any treatment. Check if he is overweight. It is advisable to do exercise which will make him lose some fat. However if there is frank gynecomastia then he needs some hormonal evaluation. Reassure your son that it is very common and can be treated.
