GYNAECOMASTIA

Overweight men often acquire fatty deposits across the chest, giving the appearance of breasts, but there is a quite different condition, not related to obesity, called gynaecomastia. Over-stimulation of a man's adrenal glands sometimes produces oestrogen instead of androgen, or the ration between testosterone and oestrogen may become unbalanced. This can cause the mammary glands to develop, resulting in actual breasts. Many men affected in this way are very self-conscious of having large breast and they have hate to swim or do anything that means exposing their body.
