Gynaecomastia: It is also called by some as Moobs (Man Boobs). During the puberty time many teenage boys develop breasts. But it goes away within three years in most of them. Also a few develop them due to hormone problems or overweight. The answer for that is surgery or leave alone.

No: Male breast enlargement in healthy teen guys is usually normal (from hormonal changes in puberty) but do avoid obesity. The annual check-up with his pediatrician or family doctor is a good time to show the doctor the breast enlargement and ask about it. A separate appointment can be made if one's check-up is not coming up soon. No "online products" help, but the salesmen love to sell their stuff.

Male breast tissue: About 1/2 males will undergo a transient nipple/breast enlargement at he onset of puberty. Carrying extra weigh aggravates the issue as part of the enlargement is fat.Most will resolve slowly as other hormonal changes kick in over about a year. If the process is unchanged after 2-3 yrs ; you've made an effort to lose any extra weight, it is time to discuss it with a surgeon. No meds will fix it
