What is Gynecomastia?
Men all over the world have experienced gynecomastia. It is more common than you think and is actually a medical condition that causes enlarged male breasts due to the presence of excess fat and glandular tissue.
When men are young—anywhere from babies to teenagers—they develop “breast buds”. Typically, these disappear as we get older.
