WHY DOES GYNECOMASTIA OCCUR IN MALES?

Gynecomastia, known as feminine breast enlargement in men, is a condition that is quite common and occurs in 50 percent of men, says General Surgery Specialist Op. Dr. also noted that there may be more than one reason for this condition, but it is mostly due to an imbalance in sex hormones.

Turkey Medicals hospital member General Surgery Specialist provided information about Gynecomastia, known as feminine breast growth in men, Op. Doctor, “Most of the gynecomastia encountered in teenagers during adolescence can pass by itself. In patients with gynecomastia, mammary glands are rarely found. Gynecomastia in newborn babies occurs due to the estrogen hormone passing through the mother, and this condition usually passes by itself within 2-3 weeks,” he said.

THE CAUSE OF THE OCCURRENCE OF GYNECOMASTIA IS USUALLY NOT FOUND

Op., who noted that gynecomastia is not a serious health problem, but in some cases it can manifest itself with a discomfort that is so different that it can be a health problem Dr. “It can often lead to social and psychological problems. If the factor that causes gynecomastia can be found, its treatment is in this direction. Types of gynecomastia are evaluated in three main groups. The first is the glandular type (due to the growth of the mammary gland), the second is the mixed type (in which the other two are mixed ), the third is the lipomatous type ( due to an increase in adipose tissue). The glandular type of growth is formed by the actual breast tissue, while the lipomatous type is formed by the adipose tissue of the breast. If it is a mixed type, both an increase in breast tissue and an increase in adipose tissue occur together, and most often it occurs as a mixed type gynecomastia in patients,” he said.

“Gynecomastia occurs due to many reasons as a definition of male breast growth. An increase in the hormone estrogen (female hormone) in the blood or an increase in estrogen-like structures is responsible. However, the cause of gynecomastia cannot usually be found,” he said.

IT CAN ALSO MANIFEST ITSELF IN MANUAL EXAMINATION

A clinical examination of the patient is very important in the differential diagnosis of male breast lesions, cases at a later age are referred directly to surgical treatment for suspected cancer without a diagnosis of gynecomastia, and most often the underlying causes are not investigated, Doctor, “In order to diagnose gynecomastia, it is absolutely necessary to be examined manually and feel the disc that gives a rope-like feeling in the breast tissue. It is not attached to the skin and subcutaneous tissue. It is important to distinguish the disc from the excess of fat in the breast tissue of patients who are overweight. In suspicious cases, before surgery, an ultrasound examination reveals whether there is any mass, whether it is fat or a mammary gland. There is no treatment for late gynecomastia other than surgery. Other treatments are performed to treat the underlying problem. In addition, false gynecomastia caused by a lubrication disorder can be reduced by losing weight. However, although excess weight is lost, the breast area can still remain oily. At the same time, it may be useful to develop the chest muscles during effecting sports,” he concluded his remarks.
