Gynecomastia not only causes enlarged breasts, but also puffy nipples, firm lumps under the nipple, enlarged areolas, pain, and, in rare cases, nipple discharge. A gynecomastia pinch test will determine whether you have true gynecomastia or pseudogynecomastia, an enlargement caused solely by fatty tissue, rather than glandular tissue. You may also be given a blood test if the cause of your gynecomastia symptoms is difficult to pinpoint.
Gynecomastia surgery is the most effective treatment to get rid of breast tissue and resolve gynecomastia symptoms. A combination of liposuction and breast tissue excision can restore the masculine appearance of the male chest and is effective for about 80% of men with gynecomastia.
Medications such as Gynexin, Gynectrol, and GyneMax are also being used to treat gynecomastia and act as fat burner treatment. While these medications can improve some symptoms of male breast development, they only target fat, not glandular breast tissue which is the underlying cause of gynecomastia. Anti-estrogen drugs have also been used to treat gynecomastia but have mainly been effective to treat pseudogynecomastia.
