I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Pain or tenderness, which may increase over time and swelling are just two possible telltale signs of gynecomastia. To the touch, it feels like a rubbery lump under the nipple affecting one or both. Indicative appearance includes a resemblance to that of a woman's breasts.

Why my nipples is not hard! when i'm bathing the nipple became hard after bathing it will come same as before. And when I am touching the nipple it will get hard for sometime. What is this? Chest fat or gynecomastia! I haven't any pain in chest, only i'm facing the nipple every time staying soft means not hard. Please answer my question due to this issue i'm hesitate to wear tshirt and and some other dresses.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Random nipple hardness is totally normal from time to time. The nerves in the nipple react to stimuli, both physical and psychological. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.

I am 29, I had my covishield 1st shot last week. I am planning to get gynecomastia surgery. Is it okay to get surgery after covid vaccine? Will there be any problems?

For gynaecomastia surgery I will advise you not to go for it as its has higher chances to recur, as it is a hormonal disorder then you have chances to recur, but if you go for proper homeopathic treatment it will be cured permanently, you need proper homeopathic treatment, so you can contact me through Lybrate in private consultation.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. There are several medical conditions that can cause breast enlargement in men. One is gynecomastia, which can cause swollen breast tissue and even breast tenderness. This condition is usually caused by some issue with testosterone, leading to more estrogen in the body. However, for the majority of men, man boobs are simply a result of having excess fat on the chest. Your pectoral muscles are underneath the layer of fat. So, by losing body fat and gaining muscle, you can work to get rid of your man boobs. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.

Hello lybrate-user! there is no definite research suggesting daily intake of sabja seeds leading to gynecomastia and loose testes. But those are surely a good source of plant based omega-3 fatty acids which will keep your cholesterol at check.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Breast cancer can occur anywhere in the breast, but the most common location is the upper, outer section of the breast. It can be located near the surface or deeper inside the breast, close to the chest wall. It can also occur in the armpit area, where there is more breast tissue (a.k.a. The "tail" of the breast). Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.
