Mild to moderate Gyne?
« on: April 01, 2019, 03:03:09 PM »
Firstly, thanks to all those who contribute here. Reading other guys experiences has helped me quite a lot, so I thought I'd share something of mine in case it helps anyone else who comes here. I'm in my early 50s and over the last 6 weeks have noticed that I have rather floppy breasts with some firm tissue in each - about 2 inches of movement up and down, and a lump 4 inches long). I'm not sure I'm anxious but I have got rather obsessed about them, and I've spent quite a bit time of reading this forum, quora and ABTF, which is enough to suggest that it's got into my head a bit.

So far the most distressing part is the weird feeling of them jiggling or wobbling when I walk or go up or down stairs and I find that wearing a bra gives me some comfort (a sense of self-care?) and a bit of confidence. Having brought two or three bras from M&S, none of which quite seemed to do the trick I went to a major London department store two weeks ago for a fitting and was soooo grateful for the kind young lady who looked after me and sent me away with 3 new bras (two everyday and one sports to begin with). (I decided that it would be better spending the money once and getting something I was happy with rather than buying a number in a random fashion and not being happy with any of them.)

I'm pretty sure that it's idiopathic as I'm hitting the right age and there aren't any other warning signs. I'm no where near bothered enough by them to want to resort to surgery or strong drugs (in fact for the moment I sort of enjoy the novelty and learning about them). None the less I've booked to see my GP in two weeks time as I'd feel pretty silly if there was something significant underlying it and i'd not got it checked. I'll post any updates to this thread.

I'm 5'6", 142lbs, and wearing bras size 32C & 34B.

Brief update. Saw GP who ordered full set of blood tests. All came back fine. However she's going to make a non-urgent referral to the Endocrinologist to see if they can cast any more light on any possible underlying cause.

Sounds like the right way to go next!

I can't remember, did you say if you were on any meds that may cause enlargement? 
I'd rather be hated for who I am, then loved for who I'm not!

I am who I am,  and I'm not going to change to please anyone!

No: none. General health is pretty decent.
