Sugar Land Male Gynecomastia
Correcting Breast Reduction for Over 20 Years
Gynecomastia is a condition in which adult males experience an overdevelopment of breast tissue, giving the appearance of enlarged breasts. This is often the result of adult men producing too much female hormone estrogen and too little male hormone testosterone. When this happens, the glandular tissue can grow and form an enlarged breast on one or both sides of the chest. This condition is the reason many men have gynecomastia or male breast reduction surgery.
What Causes Gynecomastia?
An adult male may have a hormonal imbalance for one of many reasons, including heredity, disease, or the use of certain drugs or medications.
Some of the causes of gynecomastia include:
- Health problems: Various cancers such as lung and liver, kidney disease, or an overactive thyroid
- Hormone health: Cancer of the pituitary gland, adrenal gland, or testicles
- Aging: Shifting hormone levels in middle-aged men or older may cause gynecomastia
- Drug and alcohol use/abuse: Regular use (or overuse) of alcohol, meth amphetamines, heroin, or marijuana
- Certain medications: Some prescription drugs such as steroids, heart medicines, chemotherapy drugs, and anti-anxiety and antidepressant drugs can increase risk
- Weight gain: Enlarged breasts can develop from weight gain
