What is Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is the growth of abnormally large breasts in males. It is due to the excess growth of breast tissue, not excess fat tissue. It is caused by an imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone. More than half of boys develop gynecomastia during puberty. Apply cold compresses and use pain relievers.
