26yr Old Male, Do I Have Gynecomastia? Possible To Hide With Hard Gym Work?

6 posts in this topic

See the attached pics.

I am 26 and fairly active, i have always been skinny and a little feminine in the face. up until recently discovering Gynecomastia i thought it was just down to how i was meant to be. I went to my doctors and she said she could feel a little tissue and may send me to a specialist. Mean while i wanted someone elses opinion.... i recently started going to the gym in an effort to tone up the relaxed chest area... but i read trying to tone up breast tissue can make it even worse since your now adding muscle mass to the breast tissue....

as you can see in the pics linked below i have barely any fat tissue around my stomach and it tears me to bits to think that i have breast tissue on my chest knowing i have a perfectly beach worthy stomach.

Ultimately the 3 questions i would love feedback on....

1) do you think i have the condition?

2) do you think going to the gym will lessen the condition if i tone my chest? im under no disillusion that the condition will disappear completely using this method but is it possible to tone my chest to something like this with a lot of hard work? http://www.gynecomastia-surgeon.com/wp-con...est-216x300.jpg

if i could tone my chest to get rid of some of the sagginess than i am completely happy with that.

3) can meds help at this stage?

i doubt anyone here is qualified to answer any of that, sorry

i would guess (GUESS!) that, yes.. you could potentially hide a little man-boob with huge pectoral muscles, but really, find a specialist or someone who has already tried

Hi.

I agree with Mort, no one is qualified to say - take advice from your doctor as that's what they are therefore. Also agree with Mort, building some muscle there might certainly cover it up. Remember the myth that doing sit ups causes you to get a flat stomach? Well it's not exactly a myth, if the muscle is improved it can 'hold' the flesh if you like and make that body part look less fleshy. I don't think you'll do any damage trying, but ask your doctor if you're not sure.

right, certainly not going to do any damage... so no downside unless you consider the effort a loss.

my main evidence to suggest it might work is female body builders, it does seem to make them look more flat chested (maybe this is a selection bias thing, i.e. women with bigger boobies may not be as likely to get into body building, but... it does seem to be the norm)

thanks for the comments guys, i also had other comments saying a bit of muscle gain will fill me out as im very skinny, i agree with the female body builder part although i think they are probabably pumping testosterone hormone tablets.
