Im very intersted in finding out the percentage of men who smoke pot and suffer w/ Gynecomastia VS the percent of men who dont smoke.
Are there any statistics which may show this?

And how many of you do smoke pot??
Thanks,
Jeff

I've never smoked pot, don't drink or use any other kind of drug.

Thanks for the replies:
Ive smoked pot daily for years too (Im 35) and not only that but I take klonopin (actually the generic clonazipam), paxil and abilify. I only developed Gyn. about 2 years ago, but I suppose the cause is irrelevent if the only hope is surgery.

I've done a lot of drugs (teenage years, go figure)
My gyne popped up right around the same time as I did most of it, I consider it just an unfortunate coincidence.

tried it, but first smoke was maybe 8 years after i got gyne, no connection for me...

love beer, but again, only drank way after getting gyne...i think adolescent gyne just happens  (from what i've been reading), doesn't really need a trigger, just hormones out of whack (which is what puberty is all about)...can't speak for gyne first showing up when your passed puberty, that sounds like it is triggered by stuff u put in your body (ie steroids, pot)....

I've had Gynecomastia since early puberty which was approx 1949.  Surgery was virtually non-existant in those days.

Toronrto, I suspect that you have a good understanding of the situation,  The number of boys who develop some degree of gynecomastia in early puberty is debatable with some estimates running well over 60%. The number of young men who have their gynecomastia 'self resolve' is likewise a subject for debate.  Adult onset Gynecomastia is almost always due to something screwing up the hormones.  There are many potential causes, including drugs (street or prescription) or disease,  either way it should be reason enough to see a Doctor.  Attempting to self diagnose and Treat without competent medical supervision is dangerous and not quite bright.

Sometimes, Gynecomastia simply runs in the family.

I smoked pot regularly for years, but I had the teats well before I ever smoked a J.  I've smoked very rarely the last 5 years and have seen no change.

I smoke probably once a month or so. Drink a lot, though.

Gyne came before ever started smoking.
