Gynecomastia – Emotionally impairing

Posted by John Clauding on August 3, 2007

Yes, gynecomastia is not just a extra bit of fat stored in the upper pectorals of some men. Its something which tamper them emotionally. Its a load of rubbish thrown over their self-esteem.

Many men now-a-days experience this situation, roughly about 30-40% of men, suffer from this condition either slightly or badly. But, only few succeed in eliminating them. The main problem, some people don’t ever talk about it to even the closest friends, they just concentrate on hiding them. I am not blaming them, i can only blame the gynecomastic condition, its such embrassing.

My recommendation would be to think long term and try getting rid of instead of thinking about short term hinding.

Most people, immediately think about the surgery to remove those man boobs, they don’t realize what we can do with our body, work, optimism and persistence.I would recommend surgery as only the last option.

If you would like to know more about gynecomastia and its treatment options, just browse through this blog, and do visit this gynecomastia treatment lens .

Posted by John Clauding on July 4, 2007

Gynecomastia is the most common cause for male breast Enlargement. It is common in


2.adolescent people

3.middle-aged to older adult males.

Due to the high estrogen state of pregnancy, about 60 to 90% of infants have transient Gynecomastia according to a study.

Puberty is the next prevalent cause, with a range of about 4-69%. Transient increase in the estrogen levels is the reason for it. Pubertal gynecomastia usually occurs in boys aged 10-12 years, but disappears within 18 months in most boys, and persistence is uncommon in men older than 17 years.

The third set of people where this gynecomastia is prevalent is older people. About 25% of older people have gynecomastia. This is mainly due to aromatization of testosterone, and decreased concentration of testosterone in adult males due to aging testes. About 70% of the old males admitted in hospitals have loosely falling breast tissues.

1.Persistent pubertal gynecomastia – 25%

2.Drugs – 10-25%

Common varieties are calabrese and purple sprouting broccoli. more on Wikipedia

Cauliflower is a variety (Botrytis Group) of Brassica oleracea in the family Brassicaceae (the same species as broccoli, which it strongly resembles). It is an annual plant that reproduces by seed.

Its name is a variation of cole flower or kale flower (cole and kale being variations of the same word), an acknowledgement of its unusual place among a family of food plants which normally produces only leafy greens for eating.
