Adolescents — Puberty and hormonal changes can lead to “man boobs” and “gynecomastia symptoms”. Once the hormone balance, the symptoms usually disappear by themselves.

In the majority of cases, pubertal gynecomastia resolves during that time. However, well-scheduled surgery is available for boys suffering from severe gynecomastia causing serious psychological problems and embarrassment.

Adult men – Gynecomastia among adult men may be caused by particular drugs, herbal products, ART(antiretroviral therapy) and idiopathic causes. UK Gynecomastia sees a lot of patients who have taken anabolic steroids in the past and as a consequence suffer from enlarged breast tissue. Some of these patients come to our clinic after trying anti androgen treatments that have not given the desired result meaning failure to shrink or remove the breast tissue to an accepted level. Obesity may also be a concurrent issue that needs addressing hence a holistic approach is appropriate.
