Hello :) I just came across this forum yesterday and registered immediately.  I'm new here, so I'd beg for help.  Is it gyno in my case or something else?  I am 47 years old and my breasts have always been growing.  A little bit, but I have a feeling that lately that growth has been quite intense.  The pictures are without embellishment, such are my breasts.  I was surprised when I saw the pictures, because in reality I didn’t have a feeling they looked like that.  If it's gyno, what do you advise.In a sweater, the breasts also stand out. As you can see, the sweater is a little thicker, and I have another T-shirt underneath. breasts are not typical men. Nipples are sensitive and can turn me itchy.  I apologize in bad English.  I'm from Central Europe.

Welcome to the forum.   It appears that you have feminine breasts with enlarged nipples.   If you are accepting of your breasts and are ok with having them, then I suggest wearing a bra for support and comfort.   If you aren't comfortable, then possible that a surgeon can help you.  Maybe seeing your doctor about the increased size of your breasts would be helpful as well.

Thanks for the quick reply and for the welcome :)
I have complexes before. For a while, I glued my nipples with duct tape and thought about surgery. However, I changed my mind. Those breasts are a part of me and I don’t look at them as something ugly anymore. I love my breasts :) Given the genetics, I guess I’m slowly entering the years where they will start and grow faster, and I feel that in them. They become more sensitive, they shake when I walk, especially when I run, they can ache and itch. Each breast fits into my fist with no problem.

Tonight I was surfing the internet and I concluded that I had gynecomastia caused by the growth of mammary glands. They are hard and there are plenty of them. The pressure hurts.
I wonder if their growth in men is different than in women, whether it is more intense or it depends on many factors. Of course I would love to know what to expect in the near and distant future. But it’s hard to predict.
Men on both sides of the parents developed some form of breast, but not as much as I do. They were of a different build, wider shoulders, I am narrower, narrow shoulders. Protruding nipples have always been a part of me, and back a few years breasts have taken on a feminine shape. Also, I take high blood pressure pills and nothing else.

How could I measure the size for a bra? It’s all still unknown to me. I feel I need to have something to stick to them: D

You definitely have female breasts with prominent feminine nipples.  I congratulate you for not being in denial, and instead  wishing to wear a bra, like other women do for their breasts.

Wearing a bra will help with what you are experiencing, such as breast jiggling and nipple sensitivity.  The picture you shared of you wearing a top clearly showed how noticeable your breasts already are.  A bra might make them slightly more prominent, but also you no longer will have the movement that makes them even more noticeable. Plus, no more concerns about nipping out.  I also suspect you will come to like the more uplifted, shaped look your bust will have.

As far as finding the right size bra, I suggest you go in for a fitting.  Soma is an accepting place, very helpful, with a wonderful selection of bras.  Not sure what stores are best where you live. C

You can call ahead for an appointment, if that makes you more comfortable. However, I guarantee, that if you go in braless, with your breasts jiggling and your nipples high beaming everybody, the sales associates will know you’re looking for a bra for yourself and that you need a bra as much as any woman who walks into the boutique

Thank you for your support :)
I’m not sure how to measure breasts. I measured it on one calculator and got a measure of 90B, which I have shocked me because I was expecting a basket A. If I measured it well. The circumference over the chest and the circumference under the breast (I tightened it a lot there, because it was written in the instructions).
Also, I wonder if the bra shapes the breasts? Because one breast goes more to the left and the other to the right. Both take on a rounded female shape.

In those pictures,  you can see that you definitely have female breasts I need to be wearing a bra just like a woman does. 

I was going to guess B cup, so sounds like your measurement is good. 

Since you are still growing, you are almost certain to reach a C cup, maybe a D cup or more.   Your nipples will probably be getting bigger still as your breast continue to grow.

Still notice that B is a cup?

I was aware that I had breasts, but I was not aware of their size. I hope they stay at that size, because as such I like them. They are smaller, they are hard, firm and upright. But since my breasts have grown 2.5 inches in the last 10 years, without weight gain, and I'm coming to the age when testosterone production is declining, I'm not running away from reality and it is possible that this growth will be faster and that the breasts will eventually start hanging. I am already slowly noticing these indications.

I noticed you earlier said you have used tape to cover your nipples to keep them from showing through your tops,but you might want to try something more comfortable like this:

It definitely sounds like it is time to try a bra and see how it works for you. Ideally, having a good fitting will give you the best results to evaluate the benefits of wearing a bra.
If the bra fits, wear it.

Thank you for your answers.
I struggled for a long time to accept my gynecomastia. If I could choose, of course I would choose a flat chest. My size is about 90B and I hope that if it grows, it will not go more than C size. But I can't influence that. Since I have already accepted her and in a way I loved her, I would like my breasts to be nicely shaped, regardless of the fact that I am a man :)
A bra would be useful for me primarily to reduce nipple irritation. After that to shape my breasts. And to be discreet ... maybe I'm asking a lot :D For a start, I would wear it home.
Do you have any suggestions for a bra that would meet my requirements? Unfortunately I have no one to turn to.
