Why Does Gynecomastia Occur?
If you have developed gynecomastia, you may have questions about why this happened in the first place. Ultimately, gynecomastia develops because there is an imbalance of hormones somewhere in the body. Breast tissue develops in response to specific signals from tiny molecules, called hormones, that travel from the brain to receptors located throughout the body. Some of the reasons why this imbalance may take place include:
- Gynecomastia can develop in boys as a consequence of puberty.
- Some people develop gynecomastia as a response to the medications they are taking.
- There might be a tumor somewhere in the body causing the hormone imbalance.
- Issues with the liver and kidneys can also lead to gynecomastia.
- In some cases, an improper diet can lead to gynecomastia.
These are just a few of the most common reasons why someone may develop gynecomastia. Fortunately, there are treatment options available.
