Are you feeling an unusual itch or pain under your nipple area? If so you may have Gynecomastia! Gynecomastia is a condition that causes the breast tissue to grow larger in men. Typically, Gynecomastia is diagnosed when sensitivity is noticed in the nipple area. If left unchecked, this sensitivity usually grows into a massive pain driven discomfort that leads even the toughest men to consult their doctors. Then, while causing this location to swell up and hurt more, the tissue will continue to develop within the breast area. In time, the breast pain will extend, even to under the arm. This can make lifting object and most arm movements very painful!
In order to know if you need to deal with Gynecomastia , you first have to be sure what you’re dealing with is the real thing. Men truly suffering from Gynecomastia will have enlarged breast tissue in their chest that is lumpy and very painful. Others are merely suffering from fatty tissue which can be from obesity or lack of exercise. Chances are you have real Gyno if you have used certain medications such as Finasteride or any DHT blocker. Also steroid users very often have to del with this. However, not all steroids lead to Gynecomastia. It is more likely steroids that aromatize (increase systemic estrogen levels) will lead to lumps forming. Generally, while it is an embarrassing condition that’s proven to be a hassle to deal with, Gynecomastia isn’t considered ‘life threatening’.
What To Do?
There’re three common means to handle the condition. With the most easy to get started being to wear a Gynecomastia shirt or compression vest. This is a garment that when worn presses the Gyno down so it is less noticeable. Compression shirts are an excellent temporary alternative, if you don’t have money for surgery or medications. Obviously there will still be an issue when you choose to do outdoor activities such as swimming or tanning. Still, many men suffering from Gynecomastia use compression shirts for their ease of use and immediate effects. Remember, this won’t work if you want to take off your shirt!
Another more permanent solution is Gynecomastia surgery. Surgery is seen as a better option for some men as it’s a permanent fix. But there can be complications. For one, the surgery is very invasive and requires a lot of down time to heal. It is also very costly and rarely covered by insurance. Also, it is not commonly known but Gynecomastia can come back even after corrective surgery if the same conditions that caused it in the first place are not changed.
The third option and one that is gaining in favorability is getting rid of the Gyno naturally. This basically includes lowering systemic estrogen levels and use of topical DHT to dissolve the lumps. This treatment can take up to three months or more for complete elimination of the Gyno. For more information check out http://www.kosweizerprotocol.com.
Gynecomastia is present in hundreds of thousands of men and it can really bring down your self esteem.
If you are unfortunate enough to be dealing with the curse of Gynecomastia you are very likely to suffer some psychological effects. From being embarrassed about your condition to literally hiding from society in shame the effects are very real. If this sounds like you it may be a good idea to look at the potential treatment options you have. After serious consideration you may want to look at a natural means of treatment before resorting to the surgical option. Even a reduction in the Gyno lumps could help reduce the costs for surgery in the future if you were to go that route and also help lead to a better surgical outcome.
