In brief: MD evaluation

Differentiating between weight induced breast size increase and true breast tissue growth can be safely done by your md.
Important to do so if you feel that your breast have grown.

In brief: Physical Examination

Gynecomastia, or male breast enlargement, is caused by an over development of the glandular breast tissue of the breast.
It is often also used to describe any enlargement of the male breast, including that from weight gain (primarily fat). The diagnosis is made by physical examination. There are many causes, so if you have a recent, or ongoing, change in breast size, see you doctor.

In brief: Look in a mirror

Are your breasts enlarged? Do they stick out in a tight t-shirt? If so you have gynecomastia.

In brief: See your Dr.

Gynecomastia is simply breast tissue in a man.
It may occur at certain ages where there are peak hormone levels. You may suspect this if you have had a gradual increase in fat-like tissue under your nipple, either on one or both sides. This is best confirmed by physical examination by a physician, often supplemented with an ultrasound.
