What causes gynecomastia?
A good doctor needs to diagnose the cause of gynecomastia in order to offer the most appropriate treatment. There are several things that may cause the breast of a male to get much larger than they are supposed to be. The most common cause of gynecomastia is the hormonal imbalances. For instance, if you have excessive amounts of estrogen in your body, this will have some impacts on your physique. Because, the estrogen hormone is responsible for providing a feminine look to the body. On the other hand, the hormone responsible for the masculine features of our body is testosterone. When the amount of estrogen in your body becomes more than that of testosterone, you may have enlarged breasts.
However, hormonal imbalances are not the only thing that can cause the breasts of a male to get swollen. There are numerous other causes behind gynecomastia, and being overweight is one these many causes. Because, when you gain excessive amount of weight, your breasts will naturally get larger too. Moreover, even after you lose weight, it is possible for your enlarged breasts to remain the same. This is because the fat around the breasts are one of the hardest body fats to get rid of.
Some certain medications can also cause a male to have enlarged breasts that does not turn back to normal. This may happen due to several reasons and can be hard for the doctor to diagnose unless you tell your medications. Some medications will cause you to gain weight and some will cause hormonal changes. Both of these situations will cause you to have gynecomastia. Therefore, you should always check your medications for the side effects that they cause. However, some medications are new and they do not have so much information about their side effects. Due to the lack of information about these medications, it may be hard for you to determine the cause. At any rate, you can consult the doctors in our clinic to find out what exactly is causing your gynecomastia.
