The prom is something that many people look forward to for many years. It marks your passage into adulthood in many ways as you are getting ready to graduate from high school and you can taste a little bit of freedom on the special night. There are some things that can spoil this night, however in one way or another. For example, if you are a teenage boy going through puberty you may have a problem with man boobs. This is a very serious problem because of the social disorder and chaos that it causes. It can ruin this night that never comes more than one time in your lifetime. What can you do if you are sporting a pair of breasts and are a guy?
For the most part, unless weight is a serious problem, this condition is known as gynecomastia. In this condition your body will begin to produce an excess of the female hormone, estrogen and be lacking in the male hormone, testosterone. You will find that this imbalance causes you to grow the man boobs that are giving you such a problem. The good news about this particular condition is that it tends to go away on its own after a year or two, leaving no sign of the symptoms behind. That doesn’t do you much good, however, if you are getting ready for the prom and don’t know how to look your best with this embarrassing situation. Your doctor may be able to help you.
During this time in your life it is important that you do not take too many medications or hormone treatments that will cause your body to grow inappropriately. If your body is doing this to you in the first place, however, your doctor may be able to do some things that will help to reduce their size. Some of the things that he could do are steroid treatments, anti-estrogen treatments and testosterone injections. Depending on your own particular circumstances, these treatments may be able to help in a very short period of time. If the man boobs that you’re experiencing have come up recently, seeing your doctor and getting one of these treatment options may help you to reduce their size before they become too much of a problem.
If the prom is a few months away and you have this issue because of excess weight then now is the time to start working on it. You’re going to have to burn the fat off of your body and this cannot be done overnight. If you do it systematically, by reducing the amount of calories that you are taking in and increasing the amount of calories that you burn through exercise, you will see results in a short period of time. Fortunately, your young age will also help you to be able to remove this fat from your body without the additional difficulties that come with the slower metabolism. So whatever it takes, get rid of the problem and enjoy the prom.
