Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You need to understand that Gynaecomastia is development of excess breast tissue in males. Better to get examined by a Doctor to rule it out. It can occur due to hormonal disturbance. Since you have mentioned hydrocoele in your history your Doctor needs to rule out testis damage or tumor which can cause decreased testosterone and high incidence of this condition. Also if you drink alcohol, liver can get damaged and cause high Oestrogen in body. What medication are you taking. Some medicines can also cause Gynaecomastia. Kindly get examined by a Doctor and also mention hydrocoele history to him.

Please don't get disheartened by the condition, its of quite a common occurrance. It may or may not be associated with hormonal disturbances. The hydrocoele and the gynaecomastia are both treatable conditions. Please see a general surgeon for your hydrocoele problem and as for the gynaecomastia, we could do the needful for you if you so desire.
