In brief: Lose Weight

Achieving a long-term stable weight may go a long way in improving the appearance of your chest wall.
Assuming a young man has achieved a long-term stable weight and there are no “causative agents” involved, surgery may be indicated. It is often best treated with partial excision of the prominent glandular tissue and/or liposuction surgery of the peripheral chest area.

In brief: See an endocrinologi

See an endocrinologist for an exam. Often times obese men will appear to have gynecomastia but it is just fat and will improve with weight loss.
If it is really gynecomastia there is medication which may help to shrink the tissue and stop tenderness if it has been present less than a year. If present longer surgery is the only way to get rid of the tissue.

In brief: Lose weight

Losing weight will probably improve your gynecomastia.
You still might need surgery if it persists after losing weight. There is really no medicine to improve it. If you smoke marijuana or use steroids, stop as these promote gynecomastia.
