Is it normal to have large breasts in males ?

I m 20 years male , 6 feet high and about 70kgs. my problem is that i have irregular chest shape as it pops out in front more alike boobs. I dont have any fat on my body( i have 6 pack abs with muscular body). It has been so for 6 years now. I thought it would be alright as the time progresses, but it is not so. Is this a problem and if so what should I do????????

Hi Dr, I am a male 27. There has been some increase in my estrogen levels and developing manboobs. I got the test again and the results now are normal and my endocrinologist dr says that she don t want to prescribe any estrogen blockers as they might have side effects. I am not having too much weight also my BMI is normal. Please suggest as to what to do

My son has a nipple that has enlarged. I understand that this a signed of puberty. I have already taken him to see his doctor. How long does it take before his breast nipple returns to normal? In addition, it is said that the breast enlargement is due to a hormonal imbalance and once his hormones return to normal the breast enlargement should decrease. When will his hormones become back balance? In addition, my son has developed a rash around his neck and top torso and face (small fine bumps). He does has exzema, what can I do to treat this? His prescribe creams do not work.

Is there a way i can tell if my mild/moderate pectus excavatum is decreasing my staminia when doing physical activity. I am fifteen, and my doctor says i have a slight heart murmur. he sent me to get a ultrasound and said it is probably nothing to worry about.

For several months now I've had a strange feeling in the middle of my torso, sort of between my chest and my stomach. I've always had a slight case of Pectus Excavatum, but this discomfort has only appeared in recent times. It isn't necessarily painful, but gets tender to the touch. It just feels like something is there that shouldn't be there, and this is obviously freaking me out a bit. Sometimes it is more noticeable than others, and I'm keen to find out what it is. I've tried to explain it to various people, including my GP, but they tend to look at me as though they have no idea what I am going on about.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly received.

Many thanks,
