What is gynecomastia?


Gynecomastia is a type of swelling of the mammary gland in men caused by a hormonal disorder, or an imbalance between female hormones and male hormones. This male alteration is defined by the presence of prominent breasts that can be treated by surgical excision. This method consists of an entrenchment of the gland through a periareolar surgical incision.

How to diagnose enlarged breasts in men?

The family doctor or the endocrinologist in Hisar interviews people for personal history, current medications, and similar cases in the family.

Through careful clinical examination, the characteristics of gynecomastia (unilateral or bilateral, painful or not, soft, firm or hard) are specified. Then, we ask for further examinations such as ultrasound, mammography, and hormonal assessment.

At the end of this step, a malignant pathology is eliminated, including uncommon breast cancer that can be observed in men and an adipomastia is distinguished from true gynecomastia in Turkey.
