Will an aromatase inhibitor help me get rid of my male gynecomastia?

Be careful. Make sure gynecomastia is the correct diagnosis. Breast cancer in male patients is very rare, but can be potentially life threatening. Using medications such as an aromatase inhibitor for breast swelling before eliminating the diagnosis of breast cancer can be potentially serious. Check with your doctor for details.
Maybe. It is being studied in adolescent males but is far from the standard of care. Anastrozole, in one study, reduced breast size by over 50% as compared to placebo. [for the other docs - I have to admit this was new to me: see j clin endocrinol metab 2009; 94:2975.].
Possibly. A small series has shown complete reversal in one patient. Others all had an improvement in swelling and discomfort.

Only estrogen. these medication inhibit the production of estrogen through blocking conversiton from testosterone. Are you taking testosterone supplements?

What aroma is that?? Yes,and it cures baldness and will get rid of an annoying girlfriend.Well,actually,it just inhibits the conversion of testost to estrogens in your body cells (it works overtime in fat cells).Its relationship to 5-HIAA is sketchy at best(far as I know)and on blood lipids very complex and probably opposite what you think.No easy answers here,except: you gotta histamine problem?Take an antihistamine!
