Gynecomastia is a medical condition that causes men to have swollen or enlarged breasts. It is caused by excessive tissue under the breasts and may also involve some tenderness and pain. Far from a rare or uncommon condition, gynecomastia impacts about 20 percent of U.S. men. Often, men assume that their gynecomastia symptoms are related to simple weight gain and can thus be treated with a rigorous diet or consistent exercise. The reality is a little more complicated than that. Often, weight loss alone is insufficient for dealing with gynecomastia.
