Male breast enlargement in the form of a female breast is called gynecomastia. Although it is known that gynecomastia is caused by certain hormonal disorders and lung and breast cancers, it is not usually caused by any serious health problems. In fact, the cause is rarely detected. However, it is necessary to ensure that there is no underlying disease. The aim of gynecomastia treatment is to reduce extremely large breasts in men.
Although it is mostly treated with liposuction, it may be necessary to use open methods in some cases.
