Adolescent Gynecomastia: If you are not on any medication that could cause it, it is normal for some young men to have gynecomastia, which can be quite significant and noticeable, but which should resolve over time. The only treatment, which would be extreme is surgery. Keeping weight in a healthy range and doing exercise to enlarge pectoralis muscles may help to improve the appearance for now.
