Gynecomastia is a condition in which men develop an excess of breast tissue, leading to the appearance of female breasts. While not often discussed, this condition is not uncommon. In fact, it’s present in nearly 70% of male adolescents. While at a young age, this condition is temporary due to hormonal flux but when it occurs at an older age, it’s labeled as a disorder of the endocrine system.
Dr. Mikhail Berman is a trusted and respected low testosterone specialist who has long helped men in Palm Beach Gardens and the surrounding area to attain hormone therapies and treatments. His goal is to ensure that hormone conditions and imbalances do not go unchecked. Through the use of low testosterone therapy and dietary suggestions and guidance, Dr. Berman has successfully helped men who are dealing with an excess of breast tissue.
While particularly noticeable in those that are overweight, this condition is certainly not limited to those who are carrying a few extra pounds. Regardless of the man’s overall weight, excess breast tissue can lead to intense embarrassment and stress and while exercise is helpful to overall health, it doesn’t always help to eliminate the condition. The truth is, it’s often only HRT that can provide relief.
Fortunately, an excess of breast tissue doesn’t present an immediate health concern. With that being said, it can indicate a severe imbalance of hormones in the body, which can lead to a plethora of other problems if not addressed. For this reason, it’s important not to wait to pursue the necessary treatment.

Can Gynecomastia Treatment with Hormones Help?
Both estrogen and estradiol are responsible for the growth of breast tissue in men and women. In men, it is testosterone that prevents the growth of the breasts from proceeding too far. For this reason, testosterone injections and therapy are often used as a treatment for the condition. By adding more testosterone to the blood, low t issues can be corrected and breast tissue reduced.
While aging and gradual testosterone loss is inevitable, this does not mean that it’s necessary to accept this hormone change and not pursue treatment. In fact, it’s important that you do not. Without proper therapy, the side effects can be vast, including not only excessive weight gain, but also insomnia, osteoporosis, low libido, digestion issues, and anxiety.

Aging can be difficult for many, as the resulting issues can be wide ranging and significant. Not only can men expect to gain weight and breast tissue, but mental acuity can diminish, muscles and bones can weaken, and one’s interest in sex can decrease. Erectile dysfunction and low libido, when resulting in less sex, can go on to cause more hormonal issues and problems.
With the help of testosterone therapy at the hands of a low testosterone specialist like Dr. Berman, patients have been able to experience relief from unpleasant symptoms and enjoy increased virility as well as improved mood. Through the use of testosterone injections, men of all ages can once again experience the health and vitality of youth.
