Gynecomastia is a health problem experienced with the excessive secretion of estrogen in the male breast. It is also called male breast enlargement. Since large breasts are a woman-specific condition, if a man suffers from breast enlargement, this will create not only a physical discomfort, but also a psychological discomfort.

A man with a breast enlargement problem is psychologically affected to a considerable extent. He tries to camouflage his breasts with the choice of his clothes, and becomes unable to move comfortably at the beach.

But if the weight is normal, but the breast resembles a woman’s breast and is large, be careful since this is highly likely to be gynecomastia. It is impossible to get rid of this problem without surgery. However, if this does not constitute a problem for you since you got used to it, then it is OK. It will not affect your health condition. It will not cause any disease. It is entirely psychological.
