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 an expert surgeon. It has since become the most popular website dedicated to gynecomastia.
The founder, Psychotherapist and author Merle J. Yost, LMFT, had suffered from male breast enlargement throughout his adult life and felt firsthand the social implications of living with this condition. Merle later joined forces with the 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 on our message boards. The website was featured in magazine articles and on TV shows on BBC and the Australian edition of 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 for men who currently or have previously suffered from excess breast tissue.
