Gynecomastia In Boys

Although Gynecomastia is referred to frequently as “man boobs”, the development of male breasts can begin at a younger age. While typically boys go through puberty later then girls, there have been signs of male breast growth occurring as early as 12 years old.

Diagnosing a minor under the age of 16 with Gynecomastia is rare and virtually unheard of. Normally once the child is done puberty and the body is finished growing a diagnosis will be made.

However since it is possible for a boy of 12 years to start growing breasts, when he has reached 16 years of age or older a doctor may suggest surgery to remove the tissue.

This may be all for not, since quite often boys tend to finish puberty at 18 years old and stop growing around the same time. So even if the tissue is removed if the patient is still growing it is possible that the breasts will redevelop.

Alternative treatments such as Gynexin, are generally not recommended until the child is at least 18 years old or done puberty.
