Gynecomastia, feminine breast enlargement in men. The word was
created from the combination of the Greek words γυνή gyne (woman)
and μαστός mastos (breast).
Although the cause is not known exactly, it is thought that it may have
more than one reason. It is generally thought to be caused by
imbalance in sex hormones. Gynecomastia, which occurs in
adolescents, disappears in a few years in the vast majority of cases.
Although it does not pose any health hazards, it may be a sign of a
different condition that may threaten health in rare cases. It often
causes social and psychological problems.
If the cause of gynecomastia can be determined, treatment accordingly
can be applied. However, in many cases, its treatment is surgery.
