Do I have Gynecomastia?

If you are reading this then Its a question that you’ve probably ask yourself. Only you know how you feel. You feel embarrassed by being different, something just isnt right. You dont like taking your top off around anyone. Perhaps your friends have made a comment about you having ‘bitch tits’ or man boobs though they are your friends and it was not said to be deliberately nasty it has never the less made you paranoid about your chest and wonder – do I have Gynecomastia?

Growing up I knew that there was something wrong with my chest. I thought for many years that I was simply over weight or ‘fat’ to put it another way. But as the years went on my body gained weight and lost weight and even when I was at the optimal weight for my height there was still something wrong with my chest. I remember I used to see other teenagers and wonder why they had flat lean chests and it used to make me angry and I’d get into moods and not want to be around anyone.

For me my nipples were not puffy but if I pushed on my nipple it sank down and I could feel soft tissue underneath. Reading up I found that this was often the case with Gynecomastia. All men have a layer of fatty tissue over their chest muscles, just some have more than others.

Are you worried you may have Gynecomastia? or do you wonder What is Gynecomastia?
