In a healthy man, the mammary glands are in an underdeveloped state, this is a rudiment. However, they comprise glandular tissue, short underdeveloped milk ducts and a nipple. These elements remain sensitive to female sex hormones and manifest themselves whenever there is a change in the hormonal status. Among both men and women, the size and proliferation of glandular tissue rely on the estrogen and prolactin level (a hormone of the anterior pituitary gland).
In a healthy man in his late 20s and early 30s, the content of female sex hormones is one-hundredth of a percent of the level of male hormones. If there are changes in the level of female and male hormones, the mammary glands are the first to respond, this causes the development of gynecomastia in men.
The primary causes for the imbalance of hormones in the body of a man can be as follows:
The primary symptom of gynecomastia is a significant increase in the mammary glands. It can reach 10-15 centimetres in diameter. The size of the nipple increases, the areola increases and also acquires a darker shade.
The gynecomastia signs can vary depending on the clinical form of the disease:
Parenchymal: The structure of the male organ becomes similar to that of a woman. The lobules in which the milk duct passes become enlarged.
DendricA soft formation starts appearing on the breast, which goes into the thickness of the adipose tissue.
Nodal: Its primary manifestation is the appearance of tight knots that can be felt behind the nipple.
If you notice any of the aforementioned signs, it is recommended to consult any experienced surgeon for gynecomastia treatment or gynecomastia surgery.
