Gynaecomastia also know as Man Boobs is the excessive development of breast tissue in a male. It commonly affects both breasts but can affect one breast more than the other. Gynaecomastia is thought to result from excess stimulation of breast tissue by oestrogen (the female hormone). In a small group of cases there is an underlying medical cause for Gynaecomastia, that needs to be addressed by a referral to an Endocrinologist for additional tests.
