Gynecomastia

It is a female-like growth of breast region in male patients. It can occur due to the effects of certain drugs or hormonal imbalance. It has three main types: Glandular, fatty-glandular, and simple fatty. The growth occurs with real breast tissue in the glandular type, and with adipose tissue cells in the fatty type. In the glandular type, liposuction is performed in conjunction with surgical excision. If the mass consists of only adipose tissue, liposuction alone can be performed. In cases where the mass grows excessively and causes sagging of breast, the excess skin may also be removed besides that mass.

Depending on hormonal changes, Gynecomastia is most commonly seen in males at the age of 13-15 or older. In boys, spontaneous regression occurs in 90% of cases within a year. However, the likelihood of breast cancer should be remembered when it is seen in adult males. In addition, other conditions that lead to gynecomastia should also be investigated in such patients. These include; Hepatitis, cirrhosis, lung cancer, lung diseases, cancers of certain organs, thyroid gland diseases, testicular diseases, heroin use or the use of other drugs, the use of steroid with intent to gain weight or muscle, and the use of certain drugs. It is useful to analyze the mass with ultrasound before surgical intervention. In this way, it is possible to ascertain whether it consists of only adipose tissue
