Are You Challenged with Gynecomastia? You’re NOT Alone.

Gynecomastia affects 40% – 60% of men and is due to the excess growth of breast tissue, not excess fat tissue. Gynecomastia is the enlargement of the gland tissue of the male breast and is caused by an imbalance of the hormones testosterone and estrogen.
