Went to see my doctor to get some blood work to test my testosterone levels before I schedule surgery. My doctor firts examined my chest after talking to him about my gyne. He stated it's really no big deal it's just breast tissue. i was flabbergasted by his statement, needless to say I'm changing doctors and still going forward with the PS consultation at the end of this month!

'Just breast tissue'.....  Yikes! How many guys want 'breast tissue'?

Going to a GP is a waste of time in my opinion. A GP will know very little of Gynecomastia, be unsympathetic or both.

Face it the medical field is sexist.  If a women grew a penis it would be removed no questions or denials by the insurance company period.  Men are just supposed to live with a condition they did not want not can emotionally deal with.  The condition SSSUUUCCCKKSSS!

There's a difference between primary sex organs and secondary. If a man started growing a v a g i n a, I'm sure insurance would cover it's removal.

Yer right there my man. So then.... I wonder why, when us guys grow 'breasts', many insurance companies refuse to 'recognize' the condition... ???
