Can my doctor give me testosterone pills for my gynecomastia?

Can my doctor give me testosterone pills for my gynecomastia?

No: First, testosterone pills aren't really safe (dangerous to liver). Second, excess testosterone is converted into estrogen which then exacerbates gynecomastia (male breasts). Instead, check your estrogen level and block conversion of testosterone into estrogen w/aromatase inhibitor such as anastrazole (prescription breast cancer drug). Of course, diet & exercise help, too! less fat = less gyno. ...Read more

Need normals: Please ask your question again with the normal range values for testosterone and estradiol for the lab you are going to. The fact that it is unilateral suggest highly that the levels are not causing the gynecomastia if it is one sided. It can resolve over time but can also persist a lifetime. There are treatments available that could be considered after proper evaluation by a doc. ...Read more

Don't worry: Gynecomastia in adolescent males is not uncommon and is harmless. It is best not to focus on it and consider it as a normal finding. To decrease the discomfort from your clothes rubbing on the nipple, you may want to wear a T-shirt or tank top underneath your shirt. It will be less noticeable as time goes by. Take care! ...Read more

Hyperestrogenism: OK...so I'm guessing your taking testosterone either intramuscularly or topically. Excess testosterone will be converted into estrogens. Increase estrogens in a male with causes nipple tenderness, pain, lumps and masses behind nipples and the like. Arimidex is an estrogen blocker that can be used. Its generic now and rather inexpensive. ...Read more

I have gynecomastia, how would i be able to increase my testosterone and estrogen levels?

Why?: Best not to “treat” the gynecomastia by attempting to manipulate your hormonal levels. If you have concerns about abnormal hormonal levels being causative of the gynecomastia, best to seek consultation with an endocrinologist. If, in the long term, gynecomastia remains a concern, surgical correction may be indicated; usually involves direct excision of gland tissue and/or liposuction surgery. ...Read more

Might getting gynecomastia removal surgery raise my overall testosterone levels?

No : Gynecomastia surgery should have no effect on your overall testosterone level. If persistent, gynecomastia 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 liposculpture surgery alone may suffice. ...Read more

Would taking testosterone pellets from the doctor because my free count is232, bring about gynecomastia?(man blobs). If it does how can I counteract i

Rare but possible: Men who are treated for hypogonadism {low testosterone} have a risk of developing gynecomastia, but this risk is shared with all modes of therapy. This risk is not exclusive to testosterone pellet therapy. As a matter of fact, the average daily dose of pellet implant therapy is about 10mg/day while a topical dose may be 50-100mg/day. I would expect gynecomastia to be rare with pellet therapy. ...Read more
