Not Necessarily: Gynecomastia comes from the greek meaning "gyne" meaning woman and "mastos" meaning breasts. it refers to abnormal development of large mammary glands in males. Although there may be many “causes”, most cases are idiopathic (no specific cause). Himthe use of certain medications, drugs, organ dysfunction (kidney or liver), hormonal imbalances etc. May also be causative.

No: You're probably normal, especially if you get strong erections and ejaculations like other men your age. If the gynecomastia bothers you, a morning at the surgeon's office will fix things. Best wishes.
