Hormone Replacement Therapy for Gynecomastia in Palm Beach Gardens, FL

Hormone Therapy for Gynecomastia Palm Beach Gardens, FL

Male breasts, or gynecomastia, are a condition that's both embarrassing and dangerous. Breast growths can occur in men of any age and often signify a serious illness. Thankfully, gynecomastia is treatable. If you're dealing with male breasts and interested in treatment, please call (561) 250-0480 or contact Balance Health and Wellness Centers online.

Identifying Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia manifests itself as small areas of breast tissue around the male pectoral muscles. In some cases, these areas are typically smaller than two inches, but can grow large enough to take up most of the muscle.

Your doctor will likely be able to identify male breasts with a basic physical.

Causes of Gynecomastia

Male breasts can often occur for no reason at all, especially in adolescents. This type of gynecomastia usually goes hand-in-hand with puberty and will resolve itself as the adolescent's growth progresses.

For adult men, however, there are other causes of gynecomastia:

  • Low testosterone
  • High estrogen
  • Certain medications (Steroids, antibiotics, androgens)
  • Chemotherapy
  • Malnutrition

Male breasts can also be a common side effect of aging. More alarmingly, gynecomastia can be a symptom of several more serious illnesses, including:

  • Testicular cancer
  • Renal failure
  • Liver failure
  • Adrenal carcinoma
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Kidney failure

Gynecomastia Treatment

After scheduling a consultation with a doctor, you'll go through a simple physical to determine if you have gynecomastia. From there, more in-depth tests will be required such as X-rays and biopsies. The analysis these tests provide will give your doctor a more complete picture of the root cause and possible associated illnesses.

Hormone replacement therapy, or HRT, provides an effective way to treat gynecomastia. Particularly bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, which uses hormones chemically identical to those your body produces.

As imbalanced hormones in men are a frequent cause of gynecomastia, BHRT provides a clear solution. Low testosterone or high estrogen can cause male breasts to form, and BHRT provides a proven, safe way to get relief.
