Pooja Shree

Gynecomastia is an endocrine disorder where the male breast tissue swells and growth in the size abnormally. All men and women have breast glands; however they're no longer significant in males, because they have a tendency to be small and undeveloped. Drugs which include steroids motive 10%-25% of cases of gynecomastia. They throw off the hormonal stability which increases in estrogen (the female sex hormone) and/or a lower in testosterone (the male sex hormone), which reasons the breast tissue to develop. Almost all reasons of gynecomastia may be in a single manner or different much like excess production of the hormone estrogen inside the male frame because of different factors. In this article, we overview the reasons and treatment of gynecomastia.
