How to Get Rid of Enlarged Male Breasts
Enlarged male breasts (gynecomastia) affects an estimated 60 percent of men. Gynecomastiatypically occurs during adolescence or in men over the age of 50, but it can also be caused by medications, obesity and genetics. Exercise and a healthy diet can help men lose weight, but gynecomastia is a medical condition that may or may not subside on its own.
Regardless of the reason behind gynecomastia, enlarged breasts cause many men to feel embarrassed, and men can also experience pain due to the distended tissue. Luckily, there are treatments that can alleviate what many refer to as “man boobs.”
