Enlarged male breast tissue is a condition called gynecomastia. It can also cause tenderness or pain in the breasts. The cause of this condition is usually due to hormone changes, which can happen during infancy, adolescence, or old age. Sometimes the condition will improve after two to three years; however, it can be associated with other diseases or last long after the hormone changes are past.
If you are suffering from gynecomastia, this can affect your self esteem. Fortunately, there are surgical procedures that can treat this condition. Plastic surgeons at University of Utah Health are expert in evaluating gynecomastia and helping patients determine if they should have surgery.
