Gynecomastia: Gynecomastia can be caused by hormonal abnormalities, excess weight gain, or be a normal adolescent phase. In a 34 years old man it is usually related to excess weight or a side effect of medication or drugs. Steroids and marijuana can cause breast development. A plastic surgery consultation will help you determine the cause and the treatment.

Little: Most men have no symptoms from gynecomastia. Some men can have pain and tenderness.
Dr. Otto Placik

Tender & stigma: In an age of abercrombie or calvin kein ads bearing shirtless muscular men as a beauty standard, the primary suffering men experience from gynecomastia is the social stigma of removing their shirts in public. Tenderness does occasionally occur in enlarged male breasts.
