Gynecomastia: There are medications that can cause gynecomasia, as well as excessive use of cannabis. Teen age boys often have some, and sometimes it does not regress with adulthood.

Semen analysis: Your sperm volume is borderline low, sperm count is low normal, your motility is low and your morphology is normal. If you are having an infertility problem which I guess is why you had the test, you may want to repeat the test and make sure that you collect the specimen completely into a sterile container and have it examined within an hour of collection. Abstain from intercourse for 48-72 hrs. ...Read more
