Countless women and men suffer from imperfections and insecurities of the body. Men have a tough time with a condition called gynecomastia. On average 40 and 60 percent plus of men live with this and it causes the breast tissue to become overdeveloped and enlarged. The cause of this condition varies but can often be linked to marijuana and steroid use, hormonal imbalance, environmental factors, or genetic predisposition. But most men with gynecomastia find that it’s in fact idiopathic, meaning we just don’t know what’s causing it. Man boobs, moobs and other horrible nicknames for this condition cause men who suffer from it to experience anxiety, feel less confident, tend to hide their bodies behind loose clothing or bad posture, or avoid scenarios in which they need to expose their upper bodies (swimming, the beach, sex!).
There are some common symptoms such as it can affect one or both breasts (very common breasts are enlarged but disproportionately). Other common symptoms are puffy or swollen nipples tissue, darkened nipples and the breast is often more tender. There are also psychological indicators that are common to many patients as well. Many men feel self-conscious or embarrassed and tend to avoid certain tight clothing or avoiding activities like swimming where they might have to go shirtless and experience higher levels of anxiety when it comes to expressing intimacy with their partners for the same reason. It is rather unfortunate that many men suffer and often feel frustrated and tired of living with the discomfort, anxiety and embarrassment associated with it. We at Signature Clinic want you to get back to feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin.
