Hi, I'm Dr. Steven Hausman of Hausman Technology Keynotes, and I will be speaking with you about male breast growth. This condition is called gynecomastia and is due to excess growth of breast tissue, not excess fat tissue. The condition can occur in one or both breasts, and usually begins as a small lump beneath the nipple. In many cases, the breasts enlarge unevenly. The cause of the condition is due to hormone levels. More than half of boys develop gynecomastia during puberty, and it often goes away after a few months. Gynecomastia occasionally occurs in newborns as well, where it usually goes away after a few weeks, but it may sometimes last as long as two years. Causes can include exposure to hormones, like anabolic steroids or estrogen, and also chronic liver failure, marijuana use, or as a side effect of medicines that include drugs used to treat fungal infections or drugs for heartburn. Tips to deal with gynecomastia include one, using cold compresses if the breasts are tender, two, taking pain relievers, three, stopping the use of all recreational drugs, four, stop taking all nutritional supplements or drugs that are being used for body building, and five, check in with your healthcare provider if there is a dark or bloody discharge from the nipple, there is a skin sore over the breast, or if there's a breast lump the feels hard or firm.
