Gynecomastia (Moobs)

Moobs (combination of ‘Man’ and ‘Boobs’) also known as Gynecomastia can be described as the abnormal development of large mammary glands in males, which results in the enlargement of the breasts.

The breast comprises of two main components: the firm and dense glandular tissue and the soft fatty tissue. In any breast, the ratio of glandular to fatty tissue will vary from one individual to the next. Gynecomastia cases tend to exhibit an excess of both. There is no known cause in most of the cases and, although Gynecomastia is rarely talked about, it is a very common condition.

Gynecomastia is known to affect 40-60% of men at some time during their lives. For most sufferers, the symptoms and difficulties associated to this condition tend to resolve on their own.
