Maybe!: If your man boobs are simply adipose tissue, probably. However, if due to high estrogen levels in blood, usually not. Obesity causes high Estradiol in men. Also, taking excess testosterone can increase breast tissue, by being converted to Estradiol by cyclic aromatase.See 3 more doctor answers
No: You will likely find that unless the increased breast size is caused by adipose tissue, that diet and exercise will not change the size/shape of your breast. If persistent, surgical intervention may be helpful. Gynecomastia is often best treated with partial excision of the prominent glandular tissue as well as liposuction surgery of the peripheral chest area.See 1 more doctor answer
I had a sudden shock-like feeling on the posterior side of my head while doing pec-fly exercise in gym. And have a dull pain since then. Is it serious?
Doubtful: This sounds like a sprained muscle/tendon, and should improve with time and ice andanti-inflammatories and avoidance of aggravating activities. If symptoms do not improve with time, then see a physician to evaluate for possible less common causes such as a disc herniation.
Instead getting my sexy ripped chest the hard way should I just get pec implants like those hollywood stars?
One way to approach: Pectoralis implants are generally solid silicone block implants which tend to feel much more firm than natural pec muscles. Pectoralis implants are similar to the ones used for buttock or calf implants. There are advantages and disadvantages to these type of implants and tend to have higher complication rates. Do your homework; all cosmetic procedures come with pros and cons, risks.See 1 more doctor answer
Possible: Exercises that strengthen and build the pectoralis muscles under the breast may make the breast seem larger as they increase in support, but they won't increase actual breast tissue.See 1 more doctor answer
Big muscle not breas: Exercises will only increase the size of the pectoralis muscle which will negligibly increase the size of your breasts. The breast is composed of fatty tissue and exercise may actually decrease body fat and breast size. Non surgical breast augmentation options are discussed elsewhere here: medications, external expanders, garments, herbs, etc. But usually reliably accomplished with implants/fat.See 2 more doctor answers
Depends: That depends on where the herniation is: cervical, thoracic, or lumbar. More in fo isneeded.

Tender center of chest & pec area. Feels sore/tight but no pain. Not exercise related. Can breath normal. GERD/Severe heartburn? My anxiety acting up?
Chest pain: Always means a trip to the doc or the emergency room to rule out any medical conditions. After that consider a mental health professional to teach you stress management techniques. GERD may be part of the picture and your doc can help w/that. A natural approach is the use of DGL supplement. Peace and good health.
