The word gynecomastia comes from the Greek words ‘gyne’ meaning woman and ‘mastia’ meaning breast, the more common term and certainly easier to pronounce is simply man b**bs. Amazingly a huge number (90%) of boys develop fatty tissue around the chest during puberty, in most cases the problem resolves with maturity. However for 10% of these boys the problem persists into adult hood.
The severity can vary from a slight fatty look around the chest, to an appearance more akin to a female chest. Naturally this can be very distressing for men and can often be a closely guarded secret, which can erode sexual confidence.
