See Endocrinologist: Gynocomastia can be secondary to drugs (ie marijuana and many prescription meds) and also can be secondary to hormonal problems that may signal a bigger issue. You need a testicular exam, review of your meds, and several blood tests that are not part of routine bloodwork. With no 2* sex characteristics at 19, there is an increased chance that there may be a bigger issue. See endocrinologist asap.

Get seen: You're "approximately 20 years old" and you seem to be using euphemisms for not having powerful erections / ejaculations like your peers. I suspect you have XXY or some other disorder preventing you from becoming a complete man. In any case, you don't have to tolerate having gynecomastia -- removing these is office surgery. I hope you get what you want -- and an XXY has a choice. Best wishes.
