Male gynecomastia is an abnormal condition characterized by breast enlargement in males. Occasionally they may also secrete milk. This condition may also be seen in neonates, adolescents, and elderly individuals, as a part of physiological changes.
Male gynecomastia can affect one or both breasts. Generally, gynecomastia does not produce any harmful effect on the body but it may induce undue stress and embarrassment that can impact the active sex life of the affected individual. Male gynecomastia can also cause psychological damage or loss of self-esteem in adolescents.
