Gynecomastia is the medical term for male breast enlargement. It is a condition that can create a female-like chest due to abnormally growing breast tissue. In many cases, gynecomastia is caused by an underlying hormonal issue. This condition can also be caused by certain drugs, steroids, obesity, or genetics. Men with this issue typically feel frustrated and anxious, especially in circumstances where the upper body and chest are seen, such as by the pool or in the gym.
