Why Go For Surgery In Case OF Enlarged Male Breast?

Why Go For Surgery In Case OF Enlarged Male Breast?

The development of breasts is one of the most prominent physical difference between the structure of a man and a woman. In some cases, hormonal imbalances can cause enlargement of the male breast gland, which is known as gynecomastia.  Apart from being a cause for embarrassment, it is also associated with a number of medical conditions such as kidney failure and liver cirrhosis. However, there is little need to worry if you have been diagnosed with such a condition as it can easily be treated with dietary changes, medication and surgery. Among these, surgery is the only method of treatment that guarantees a permanent and immediate solution to the problem. 

Surgical treatment for gynecomastia is of two types

The type of surgery suitable for you will depend on a number of factors including the extent and type of gynecomastia.

Liposuction involves the removal of fat from the breast, but does not touch the breast tissue itself. For this surgery, a surgeon makes a small incision on either side of the chest or along the edge of the areola. Excessive fat is then removed through these incisions and the skin and remaining tissue is then restructured. Liposuction can take anywhere between a week and 3 weeks for complete recovery. In the meanwhile, the patient must wear a compression garment to minimize the swelling and support the chest tissue as it heals. 

A mastectomy on the other hand is used to remove the breast tissue. A mastectomy is performed endoscopically and hence is less invasive. In this case, the incisions are located around the edge of the areola or in the natural crease of the chest. A mastectomy requires a shorter recovery period. In some cases, a combination of the two techniques may also be used. 

The results of both surgical approaches can be seen immediately after the surgery. Slight soreness and pain is a common side effect of this procedure and can be relieved with pain medication. Some men may also experience a temporary loss of sensation over the treated area. 

Though the results of both types of surgeries are permanent, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after the surgery. Unhealthy eating that leads to significant weight gain can make the problem recur. Use of steroids or medication that affects the testosterone levels in the body and certain medical conditions can also lead to recurring gynecomastia.

Can a breast cancer patient stage 4 does family work like cooking? Is it a infectious one?

Yes they can do daily work. Breast cancer is not a contagious disease. It won’t spread by touching someone or sharing meals with them. After surgery Just avoid any pinprick or cut on arm of the affected side as lymphoedema chances are there.

Is CEF is right chemo treatment nat ER +/PR + and Her 2- I am 41, unmarried, premenausal female. Diagnosed with Invasive breast cancer (lump on the right chest wall-upper inner quadrant high up) lymph node and axillary node positive. Type: ER +, PR+,her 2 -.Size of the tumor is 2.7 cm.and they say its a LABC (locally advanced breast cancer) .Started with NACT (CEF every 3 weekly). Done with the first chemo 15 days back with CEF (cyclophosphamide-750, epirubicin,-120 fluorouracil-750 mg. I am really confused as I don't see much data on hormone positive and Her 2 - patients given this CEF chemo (either adjuvant or neoadjuvant). My fellow patient (of similar types) from other hospitals are given AC/T. Also I met one of senior oncologist who suggested to shift from chemotherapy and instead start Neoadjuvant Endocrine Therapy (tamoxifen 20 mg for next 3 months). Would really appreciate if you share your expert opinion the right treatment path for my case.

Hello Lybrate user! LABC means locally advanced breast cancer- decided not only with tumor size but also changes of breast skin, involvement of lymph nodes, and inflammatory changes. 3 cycles of FEC/ CEF or 4AC as neoadjuvant (chemotherapy before surgery) chemotherapy is good to give to reduce size of tumor and control local decease and also in cases of breast conservation surgeries. After surgery they might start TC as adjuvant chemotherapy (chemotherapy after surgery. So it is one of the treatment. Once neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemo will finish you have to take hormonal therapy.

Oncologist, Pune
Triple negative Breast cancer is an aggressive variety of breast cancer. If pleural fluid tapping report is positive for cancer cells or not? Depending on that staging will be decided. Triple negative Breast cancer respond good to chemotherapy. Life span is not decided according to the type of tumor. It varies patient to patient, depends o their co- morbidities, their response to treatment and few more things.

My wife is on tamoxifen after chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer treatment .Even after six years the doctor wants her to continue with tamoxifen .Is it needed.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, FBD (Fellowship in Breast Diseases), UICC Fellowship
Oncologist, Pune
Yes. It is ok to take. As she is on tamoxifen that means she is ER, PR positive. According to newer studies these patients can take tamoxifen for 8-10 years to block above receptors.
