True gynecomastia is a benign enlargement of the male breast resulting from a proliferation of the glandular breast tissue. The similar condition known as pseudogynecomastia, or lipomastia, is characterized by fat deposition without glandular proliferation. Many gynecomastia patients in Minnesota have both increased glandular breast tissue and excess local fat deposition.
Gynecomastia is common in men in the Minneapolis and St Paul areas, it happens at any age. It can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity conditions, disease or the use of certain drugs.
Gynecomastia results mainly from an altered estrogen-androgen balance. The imbalance is between the stimulatory effect of estrogen and the inhibitory effect of androgen. Thus, any cause of estrogen excess from overproduction to peripheral conversion of androgens can initiate the cascade to breast development.
Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair your self-confidence. Some men in Minnesota may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition.
