What is Gynecomastia?
Gynecomastia is a medical condition where men develop breasts similar to women. The condition involves extra breast tissue to grow in the chest, making it much fuller than it should be in men.

It can be simply because of obesity, which can cause men to develop breasts like shape. Sometimes fat is mistaken to tissue which can cause a bit of confusion. Consulting a physician can help you gain clarity and confirm whether you have fat or tissue, present in the chest.
A hormonal imbalance that increases the levels of oestrogen and lowers the levels of testosterone present in the body triggers gynecomastia in men.
