Sex, sunbathing by the pool, charging into battle on horseback — there are certain things in life that are best enjoyed without a shirt on. Regardless of how you grew them, your man-nary glands can be remedied. Of all the indignities age thrusts upon your body, a sudden swelling in your chest might be the toughest to stomach. Man moobs are caused by the formation of excess fat or breast tissue, which gives the appearance of breasts.
Yes, men do have breasts — even milk ducts. For the vast majority of men, the breast tissue does not develop like it does in women due to high testosterone levels during puberty. There are several medical conditions that can cause breast enlargement in men. One is gynecomastia, which can cause swollen breast tissue and even breast tenderness. This condition is usually caused by some issue with testosterone, leading to more estrogen in the body.
Back to Men's health. Gynaecomastia sometimes referred to as "man boobs" is a common condition that causes boys' and men's breasts to swell and become larger than normal. It is most common in teenage boys and older men. Signs vary from a small amount of extra tissue around the nipples to more prominent breasts. It can affect one or both breasts.
