Breast growth due to hormonal causes is frequently encountered in adolescence. In this period, a serious change in hormones such as sensitivity and fullness also occurs. This temporary situation may become permanent for some men. It is called gynecomastia when it becomes permanent. Especially in males with excess weight, this problem is more likely to occur.
Drugs, tumors, genetic conditions, and adolescence, as we have mentioned, are among the causes of growth in the male breast. Another reason for breast growth is men living in urban environments preferring a sedentary lifestyle. However, malnutrition may also cause breast growth. Usually, for men going to gyms plenty of outdoor hiking is also recommended. Other reasons are described below.
