Male breast tissue swells due to reduced male hormones (testosterone) or increased female hormones (oestrogen). Causes include puberty, ageing, medication and health conditions that affect hormones. Symptoms are breast tissue swelling and tenderness. Treatment may not be required in some cases. In other cases, treatment focuses on managing the underlying condition. Rarely, medical or surgical treatment is necessary.Usually, gynecomastia is not a physically harmful disorder. But it can somehow be an indicator of a more serious underlying condition such as testicular cancer. ... These signs may signify of breast cancer. However, if it is solely breast enlargement, the percentage of it being a breast cancer is quite low
