Some men have an overgrowth of breast tissue also known as a condition called Gynecomastia. This condition affects as many as two out of three adolescent males and one out of six adult males.

There have been many causes found for this condition, some of which might include:

  • Some common medications
  • Anabolic steroids
  • Herbal and growth supplements
  • Natural or synthetic estrogen hormone derivatives
  • Marijuana
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Chronic liver failure
  • Renal failure
  • Obesity

Currently, there are techniques which have been implemented to help treat this condition.

  • Physically healthy
  • Bothered by a moderate amount of excess breast tissue
  • A non-smoker
  • Someone with realistic expectations
