What Is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a medical condition that causes enlarged breasts in men. Although large male breasts are often considered a sign of being out of shape, the condition can cause "man boobs" in even the most toned men. The origins of gynecomastia go back to puberty and even earlier in development. Some male babies have breast buds, but these are expected to disappear as the boy reaches puberty. For some men, though, the breast buds are persistent into adulthood. Gynecomastia surgery, known as male breast reduction, removes the excess tissue.
