Depends: It could be secondary to obesity or medications if both are equally enlarged. Chronic marijuana use can also cause enlarged breasts in men. See a physician for an exam. Male breast cancer is not as common as female but you should get it checked out.

Surgery Helpful.: Assuming a young man has achieved a long-term stable weight and there are no “causative agents” involved, surgery may be indicated to treat persistent gynecomastia. It is often best treated with partial excision of the prominent glandular tissue as well as liposuction surgery of the peripheral chest area. If the prominence of the chest wall is caused by adipose tissue, then liposuction surgery.
