Gynecomastia.org was founded in 1996 as a resource for people who suffer from gynecomastia and want to share their stories, find reputable information, and consult with expert surgeons. It has since become the most popular website dedicated to gynecomastia. The founder, Psychotherapist and author Merle J. Yost, LMFT has suffered from enlarged male breasts in his adult life and felt firsthand the social implications of living with this condition. Merle later joined forces with renowned plastic surgeon, Miguel A. Delgado, Jr. MD, who serves as the site's medical director. The book "Demystifying Gynecomastia: Men with Breasts", published in 2006, was written by Merle and is partially based on the experiences of individuals who participated in our message boards. The website was featured in magazine articles and on TV shows on BBC and the Australian edition of Discovery Channel.
Gynecomastia.org and Merle's story on the Discovery Channel
At Gynecomastia.org, we promote the dignity and self-worth of all men with gynecomastia and strive to give them a safe, secure environment in which to ask questions, seek answers, connect with others, and express themselves with confidence and integrity. To that end, we encourage self-discovery through forums, scientific articles, videos, and education. Gynecomastia.org is not simply a website - it is a home, and a community.
