Male : Male breast development is normal in teenagers. Unfortunately, development is excessive in some young men. It is unlikely to be caused by an endocrine problem but it is probably worthwhile having his pediatrician evaluate him for this. I feel that if he is mature enough to handle going through an operation, then age 15 is fine for this problem. The improvement in self esteem can be quite significant. ...Read more

I'm a 49 years old male and would like to make a baby with my wife of 35 years old wife we been trying for 6 months now and nothing yet what should we?

A discussion with the OB and a referral to a fertility center may provide you with more information.There can be issues with either party in this process. ...Read more

What do you suggest if i'm a 15 year old boy at about 5'6" and am only growing an inch a year. Will i grow any taller?

Not much: If you started puberty at the same time as your friends, and have only grown 1 inch the past year, chances are you have only a little more to go if any.An xray of your wrist and hand can be examined for open growth centers and that will predict whether your long bones have potential to grow more. ...Read more

Can have removed: Adolescent gynecomastia -- i trust the diagnosis is correct. If this annoys you, any surgeon can remove it in the office. Although this is fairly common, you have a right to be like other guys; it's not right but there is a stigma to this. Being a teenaged boy is difficult enough without having something like this untreated. ...Read more

I am19 year old boy and my height is 5'3 inch can I grow another 5 to 6 inches?
