  • Hormonal imbalances of estrogen and testosterone during puberty
  • Excess weight gain
  • Use of anabolic steroids
  • Use of drugs like marijuana, heroin and methadone
  • Hypogonadism
  • Tumors
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Kidney failure
  • Liver cirrhosis
  • Medications such as anti-androgens AIDS medications, cancer treatment, ulcer medications antibiotics and anti-anxiety medications
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Malnutrition
  • Herbal products such as tea tree oil and lavender oil have also been associated with gynecomastia

  • True Gynecomastia caused because of enlarged glandular tissues
  • Pseudogynecomastia caused because of fat deposits in the breast area of the chest.

  • Hesitant to go swimming or to the gym

  • If you have asymmetry or unilateral breasts
  • If you feel a frim disc like rise under the skin
  • The side profile examination of your body reveals breasts similar to that of a female.
