Abstract

Gynecomastia is a common problem during puberty as well as later adulthood, and is caused by hormonal imbalance at the breast tissue level. Various medications and medical conditions can cause gynecomastia and when the drug is discontinued or medical condition cured, it will frequently resolve. Medical therapy can be tried for patients with persistent gynecomastia associated-tenderness or social embarrassment prior to contemplating surgical removal of the breast tissue.
