New member and am curious if my boobs are just fat or does it look like breast glands. When I pinch behind my nipples, there is hard mass like 2-3" in diameter. All my life I worked out hard and lost weight but still had boobs. Now that I am 58 years old, I kind of want to know what I am dealing with and if I am candidate for surgery at my age. 

See my pics and let me know if you think I have breast glands. 

Thanks guys.

That's a tell-tale sign.  You just described feeling the glands.

Sorry about the pics. The pics on my computer do not look this bad. Not sure what happened. I need to re-size them I think.

Definitely good sized female shaped breasts with larger feminine areolae and thicker, longer nipples even. 

From what you described, sounds like you have glandular tissue, so your breasts would be both mammary gland and fat, just like a woman’s.

I would guess you are about a C cup.  You definitely pass the pencil test :)

If the bra fits, wear it.

Hi John,
Welcome to the club! I'm 57 and I just started down this road a few weeks ago. Surgery on Jan 20. Read some of my posts, I think we have similar stories. 
46 year victim of a cruel joke. Jan 20, 2021 the joke is over.

Some breast tissue and shape but nothing out of the ordinary regarding breast shape for a man. Areola size and nipple look male and breast shape look more man boob than feminine breast. If seeing you at a pool beach etc I wouldn’t think anything other than a dude with some slight man boob action. I’m sure a bra could help but judging by the image I can’t imagine they are difficult to work with. Though everyone is different and if support helps support should be considered.
