What is gynaecomastia or ‘man boobs’?
Gynaecomastia (often referred to as ‘man boobs’) is the enlargement of male breast tissue. The condition appears as a rubbery or firm mass that starts from underneath the nipples and then spreads outwards over the breast area. The tissue is enlargement of glandular tissue and is not fat tissue. In about half of cases, enlargement is found in both breasts; in the remainder it only affects one breast. Gynaecomastia can happen in males of any age or weight. Obese men can appear to have man boobs as they have fat tissue all over the body including the breasts, but this is not true gynaecomastia.
How common is gynaecomastia?
Gynaecomastia is very common in boys going through puberty, happening in more than half of all normal adolescent males, and usually resolves completely. In older men, enlargement of the breast tissue happens in one to two thirds of men.
