It doesn't go like that. It is excess adipose tissue that accumulated there. U have to operate it and U will be prescribed on hormonal drugs. No need to panic. Best of luck.

Gonna make this short....

Started feeling pain exactly a year ago during NYSC at Kano on my right breast, did some online inquiry and suspected Gynecomastia, as i wasn't so sure, i went to the community hospital and the Doctor said it's what i suspected, and said it was as a result of Hormonal imbalance, he gave me drug prescription, which i took to the Pharmacy and sadly they had just one of the three, as i wasn't sure of taking an incomplete dosage, i didn't buy the drug... Sadly while packing my stuffs at the end of the service year i left the drug prescribed for me at Kano, now it seems the Gynecomastia won't go, although there as been no real increase in the size, but i still can't wear tight hug shirts like i used to...... need an advice on what to do, and by the way am 23.....
although a medical friend said it will go away with time, he's still a medical student though..

I once had it too, though i was younger as at that time..

The poster should register for NHIS. Pay the yearly due probably select the best oooo. Asin the best option. It may cost u up-to 50k for subscription then approach any federal medical centre. If they can't do it. They will refer u and any hospital u do it will be done free. Cuz NHIS will pay including ur drugs. Highest in some cases u will be asked to pay is 10%

So explicit, thumbs up!
Jakumo:


My operation was carried out by a doctor whose office was at the time located on North Mountain Avenue, in Ontario, Southern California, not far from Ontario Airport.

That said, there are bound to be competent doctors who can carry out the procedure in absolute safety if you happen to live in Nigeria, though you will need to exercise due diligence in selecting the doctor to perform this simple procedure with the precision that is essential, to prevent complications post-surgery.

My surgery was done under local anesthetic, so after being given a couple of small injections on the chest, I could sit up fully conscious to observe the process, which was accompanied by a loud repetitive scraping noise, as the doctor separated my skin from the underlying tissue with a blunt instrument, while a steady stream of blood was vacuumed off by the nurse. It is vital the surgeon ensures ALL the fatty tissue beneath the nipple is cleanly removed, including the two narrow string-like structures called "tails" that extend upwards toward each armpit, along the lateral edges of the chest (pectoralis) muscle.

For week or two at the most after the surgery, the doctor will leave a tiny drain-pipe in the stitched-up cut through which the surgery was performed, to empty out fluids as the healing takes place under a light wound dressing. When that dressing comes off, and the tiny drain-pipe is extracted, there will still be some minor swelling that will subside completely in another week or so, at which point this minor medical condition that has inconvenienced you for so long, will cease to be a part of your life, forever.

Once again, do NOT pick an doctor whose reputation cannot be thoroughly investigated, because the are are risks of nerve damage or even infection that can ONLY be minimized by putting yourself in the hands of the most highly qualified and experienced surgeon one can afford.

All the best, my brother, and remember, don't allow anyone to steer you into hormonal treatment. That chit is really bad news to the human body. Surgery is your ONLY viable and SAFE option, if handled by the right doctor.

Op, if you’re using anything with lavender essential oil in it, you need to stop. It causes males to grow boobs. If you have a partner that burns it at home for its fragrance or a calm atmosphere, tell them to stop also. Fenugreek makes female boobs to grow bigger. I don’t know what it does to men. But to be in the safe side, you should not use it as a spice in food. Some women say it is an aphrodisiac for both genders though. Tea tree oil that we use on our hair and body for its antibiotic properties causes male boobs to grow as well. A lot of soaps, moisturizers and hair products contain tea tree oil.

You can get this surgery done at the Obafemi Awolowo University teaching hospital. They'll examine it and recommend whether its right for your or not. My parents paid for mine and it cost about N300,000 including the ward I stayed, but I'm not completely sure if that was the final cost. It was done exactly a year ago (Feb 19th, 2018) and the scars are still there but it's progressively healing. If you eventually do make sure you use Shea butter after so the scars will go away faster, I should've known. I might probably get a tattoo to cover up my scars later on. I'm sorry I might not be able to provide so much information about it but I'd recommend you do it here, in India the surgery costs the equivalent of N700,000 and in the United States it costs well upward of N1 million.
The doctors at OAU are very professional and you have nothing to worry about regarding their competence. Also, they'll take whatever they removed from your chest to the forensic department to be sure its just gynecomastia and not something more sinister.
My life feels so much better now, I can wear properly fitted clothes without feeling insecure now.



****Also, if its just fat and not gyno they'll advise you to do more exercise and eat healthier. They'll examine you properly sha.


****Like someone else has stated, surgery is the ONLY option. Especially if the growth has stagnated as the doctors explained to me. At that point its just dead weight that has to be removed surgically. Mine was extremely large so I was sedated under general anaesthesia, the doctor said using local anaesthesia on me would require too much of it. It's a relatively short surgery, I think mine lasted for two hours and that's because of how big mine was. Man, it was weird being as skinny as I am, yet with giant mounds of god knows what on my chest.

****I should add that there a fraudulent doctors who'd offer to do it for far less, don't joke with your life. . . one hospital in Lagos offered to do it for N35,000. Seemed like a "great offer" until I met the consultants in OAU. The "equipment" alone that I needed to buy cost N60,000 (guaze, drains, medicine (I was given some drugs to use after the surgery for 3 days), etc)

MOTIVATIONAL PURPOSE ONLY!!

THIS IS REAL COS I KNOW THIS GUY IN THE PICTURE,HE WORKED HIS ASS OUT TO ACHIEVE THIS,MAD ASS DIET WITH UPTIMUM CONSISTENCY AT THE GYM!

WE USE THE SAME GYM BY THE WAY. IT TOOK HIM YEARS OF HARD LABOURED WEIGHT TRAINING/HIGH INTENSITY WORK OUTS AND STRICT DIET TO ACHIEVE THIS.

NOW THIS IS WHERE YOU GUYS DIFFER,HE HAS MORE ALL ROUND FAT TISSUE ON HIM THAN YOURS. YOU SEEMS TO BE SKINNY YET WITH MAN BOOBS.

EASIEST ROUTE WOULD BE TO GO FOR SURGERY,HARD WAY IS
HEAVY WEIGHT LIFTING
PROTEIN DIET
HIGH INTENSITY CARDIO
AND MAAA MEENN CONSISTENCY IS KEY.
BEST WISHES.

Please, don't use hormonal treatment.
Go straight for surgery.
Don't be afraid.
Local anaesthetic will be used on you.

May God provide the money, quick health recovery.

Your doctor friend is right, it'll go in time. And in the meantime, you can press away the pain little by little on daily basis. It had happened to me too, some years back and that is what I did.
