This is : Called gynecomastia. It has several causes. See your doctor for a breast exam to make sure there isn't an underlying mass. Although relatively uncommon, guys also get breast cancer. Your doctor may order an ultrasound and/or mammogram.

See a doctor: Male breast enlargement is called gynecomastia and can be common in men. It is seen at puberty but can also be seen in grown men who are overweight (the man boob) or due to medications.
Male breast cancer usually occurs on 1 side and is firm.
I recommend getting evaluated by your family doctor who can refer you to a surgeon for complete evaluation.
