Gynecomastia: A Common Issue

Published on January 19, 2017 by

One of the most sought-after physical features in men is a solid and well-defined chest. A strong chest helps to enhance the appearance of your physique and gives your upper body a toned and fit look. Diet and exercise can help you get a stronger chest, but nearly 50% of males suffer from gynecomastia, a condition that produces enlarged male breasts.

The reason why the number of males who have gynecomastia is so high is because the factors that cause it are present within nearly every male. These factors include genetics and hormonal imbalances. During puberty, the hormones in the body are placed in a hectic state that can be quite volatile. Many males suffer from gynecomastia during their teen years, which can become an issue later in life.
