Breast Surgery

In brief: Gynecomastia

Surgical intervention depends on the causing factor. Some medications can cause male breast enlargement.
Being overweight can do it as well. You should be evaluated to make sure there is not any abnormal mass (breast cancer occurs in men, too). Meet with a surgeon to discuss options. Consider meeting with a breast specialist for an additional opinion.
