What happens when people stare at your chest longer than you think they should? What if it suddenly dawns on you that your chest seems different from that of your friends — more female-like than the average male chest? You probably even noticed that compared to other guys, your nipples seem to poke through t-shirts? You might rush to the Internet, start looking up these odd situations and suddenly the word gynecomastia comes up or more likely “man boobs,” “bitch tits,” and other derogatory slang terms for this common condition suffered by millions of other men like yourself. You start to say to yourself I think I have gynecomastia.
Naturally, you do your homework and come across more information than you could ever handle from all corners of the web, where you learn that gynecomastia ranges from something that is “nothing to worry about” to an issue that can only treated with a surgical procedure. So you think, certainly there must be a non-surgical solution! Now you focus on all the marketing for potions, lotions and pills that will take care of your gynecomastia without surgery and all you have to do is part with some money. Better yet, you won’t have to tell anyone because you know how embarrassing that would be.
You can also live in denial. You try to convince yourself every day that you don’t have gynecomastia and that it will go away on its own. You convince yourself that you look pretty good in loose shirts with pockets and patterns. You can even shrug your shoulders forward to make it less noticeable. You start to avoid situations that would involve taking off your shirt and certainly avoid intimate situations that would really make you anxious. What would people say?
A year later and now short of hundreds or maybe even thousands of dollars, you realize that those magical lotions and pills really didn’t do a damn thing. Time has moved on, opportunities have been missed and now you think about gynecomastia each and every day. I think I have gynecomastia moves on to become Why me? What did I do to deserve this? What caused this anyway? What did I do wrong?
Worse yet, you may have found some guy in the gym who convinced you to take a sequence of hormones as this is the “only way to get rid of man boobs”, or “I have many friends who used it and it changed their lives.” You visit a local “men’s clinic” and they test your blood and tell you your testosterone is low and that you would benefit from testosterone replacement. They have other ideas on how you can discover the fountain of youth and take care of all your problems. What a wonderful world we live in!
Valuable time and opportunities continue to pass you by, and you are still thinking about gynecomastia daily and your psyche continues getting beat down as you do your best to keep it all together—pretending to yourself and the world around you that you simply don’t have gynecomastia or that you can live with it.
The moral of the story is quite simple: if you think you have gynecomastia you probably do. The only treatment for gynecomastia is a surgical procedure to remove the tissue beneath your chest skin. We often don’t know why it is there, but it doesn’t make a difference anyway. If it hasn’t gone away in a year or so, it is unlikely to go away. And the longer you wait before treatment, the more you will suffer, especially mentally.
The procedure in expert hands is straightforward, cost-effective, and low-risk. After a fast recovery, you will experience benefits that are amazing and life changing, as if an elephant has been lifted off your chest.
If you think you have gynecomastia, check with an expert, and if confirmed, get treatment. The sooner, the better!
