In brief: Fake Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is mass of breast tissue in the male breast.
It can form a bump of fullness that can range from only palpable to embarrassingly large. The prefix pseudo means false or fake. Anything that causes the appearance of gynecomastia, but is not due to glandular tissue is termed pseudogynecomastia. The most common cause is fat. Pubescent gyneco can resolve. Surgery is the most common cure.
