It depends on how long you have had it. If it's been a long time, then it's here to stay, but the good news would be that tricare does cover surgery for that, at least there has been some active duty people on the forum that have had it covered.

Good luck
Bob

I don't think it will if it's been 2 years, but only a doctor can confirm that

hammer is correct, you are pretty much stuck with what you have.

What you need to do is find out why you developed breast tissue in the first place, this should help you discover if your development will continue.


You have two basic choices. Acceptance or Surgery. Either way you need to discover the cause of your development.

It's hard, but not impossible! I had it all my life, served in the Navy 4 years active duty with it E5 (HT2), 7 years Army Reserves 68G20 with it and do to health issues have grown to a 46H size bra to support them as my primary care doctor at the VA suggested!

TigerPaws a lifer Marine ended up getting a huge pair due to prostate problems! And as he says, "adapt and overcome"!

Anything is possible when you set your mind to it! After all, your are a US Soldier, aren't you?

Your still a trained solider young man, don't allow yourself to be a victim! Stand up for yourself! 

On another note, while I was in the US NAVY I was in your home land 3 times, and I really liked it!

Then develop some intestinal fortitude and tell people who say something offensive to "Keep their Damn Mouth zipped".

Complaining achieves nothing, take definitive action and never, ever put up with BS from anyone.

Son, self confidence comes from within, not from how you look! Those bumps on your chest are just extra fat, breast tissue and skin! What makes you the man you are is what's in your head and heart, not how your body is shaped!

Ok so it is going to cost you some money, big deal what are you going to do with it? Take your money to the grave with you?

If surgery is your goal that is your choice and all success in the future. Complaining, moaning and griping about the simple fact they you are unhappy with your reflection will get you no where.

Man-up and take control of your life, no one is on this Earth to help you feel good about yourself. If you want a friend get a dog otherwise whatever you decide do so and move on with your life.
