In brief: Man "boobs"
It depends on the cause of the enlarged breast tissue.
This can have many causes, many of which involve a hormonal imbalance of estrogen vs testosterone. It is necessary to see your doctor to correctly diagnose the cause in order to advise you about proper treatment.

In brief: Maybe Surgery
Gynecomastia can be caused by a number of things ranging from prescription medications, marijuana use, hormone imbalance, or unknown reasons.
Once all other causes and issues are addressed, surgery may be in order. This can range from simple liposuction to removal of excess skin and breast tissue, depending on the nature of the extra tissue.

In brief: Depends
Anabolic steroids are one of the most common causes in young through middle aged men.
Avoid them. Watch your diet and get down to ideal body weight. If the breast enlargement happened because of drugs surgery is the only real solution and also if weight loss was unsuccessful.
