There are a lot of things in life that can embarrass us. Many of us go through life unhappy with the way that we are, either the way the look or the way that we act. At times, however, there are things that happened that we really don’t have much control over. One of these things is when a boy, or a man, develops man boobs. This is an interesting phenomenon although it can cause a lot of stress and problems for the person that is suffering from it. The fact of the matter is, there are many different things that can cause this type of condition. Depending on the situation that you are personally in, there may be some things that can be done about it.
The actual condition that will cause a man to have breast is known as gynecomastia. It typically happens to a boy during adolescence whenever he has an increased level of estrogen and a decreased level of testosterone. The combination between these two would cause his mammary glands to be activated to the extent where they grow as if they were a woman’s. Let me tell you something, this can be very stressful for a boy who is going through a very difficult period of his life in the first place. If the child is suffering from this, unfortunately there is not much that can be done about it. Many boys may try doing various exercises which would include a lot of chest related weightlifting and cardio but this would do little to shrink the size of his breast, the same as these exercises would do little to shrink the breast on a woman. For this type of condition, it may be necessary for the boy simply to wait it out as it typically goes away after a couple of years.
There may be other reasons that would cause man boobs to appear either during adolescence or later on in life. You may have been taking a medication that works against one of the glands in your body, such as the pituitary gland or the thyroid. This may cause them to stop producing chemicals that would aid in the production of testosterone or it may even begin to produce estrogen in the male. They could also be a problem with weight gain or any number of underlying issues. This type of condition may be able to be treated by the use of hormone therapy or perhaps weight control. One of the best things for you to try is dieting so that you will end up in calorie deficit every day and doing some cardiovascular exercise as well as weightlifting in order to get your body in shape. It may take some work for you to overcome your manly breasts but it will be well worth it in the end as you will not have to hide as part of your body any longer.
