i just went to the specialist at the breast clinic in the hospital and was told that i am to be put on steroids (which i actually already did myself but will now proably stop)
she said that my gyne  should go away in about three months!
Im not so sure it will!
ive seen pics on here of guys saying i have gyno and nothing but i have small lady lumps and can feel the solid gland about 2 inches of diameter on each side
So hows come this is the case that im being told it will go? ive had it for 2 years now and as far as i was concerned you have gyne you have it for life?

anyways she also said if it doesnt there is a sharp scalpel with my name on it.

The term  "Steroids" can mean different things.

The steroids used by body builders are of one type, and they are androgenic hormones.

A completely different type of steroid would be the anti-inflamitory drugs used by old people like me to get some relief from arthritis. This kind of steroid is also often used to control / reduce inflamation after an injury.

Abuse of the first type is a predisposing factor in many cases of gynecomastia.  Using the latter type could reduce swelling, True enough.  But I do not know how effective it would be against Gynecomastia.


Yet another type has its special use,  The treatment of allergies, asthma etc.

The term steroid could mean several things depending upon application and/or context.
