What is Gynecomastia and Puffy Nipples?
Gynecomastia, the fancy word for man boobs, is a common condition where both teenage boys and older men’s breasts are larger than usual.
Puffy nipples, on the other hand, are the most common manifestation of gynecomastia where the nipples become a dome-shape in appearance. Treating gynecomastia will result in getting rid of puffy nipples.
What Causes Gynecomastia?
There are several conditions on what causes gynecomastia, and it is crucial to understand each to know what appropriate action you should do to get rid of it.
- Obesity – the breasts are made up of fatty tissues. Thus, too many fats can abnormally enlarge your breasts.
- Hormonal imbalance – this is one of the most common causes of gynecomastia. The hormone called Oestrogen causes breast tissue to grow. While all men have an Oestrogen hormone, too much of it can cause abnormal growth of the breasts.
- Puberty – some boys who hit the puberty stage can experience increased Oestrogen levels, which result in enlargement of the breast. There’s nothing to worry about this since hormonal imbalance due to puberty usually clears up as boys get older.
There are also other rare causes of gynecomastia. These include:
- Side effects of certain medications (e.g., anti-ulcer, antipsychotics, antiretrovirals)
- Use of illegal drugs
- Excessive alcohol intake
- Kidney Failure and liver disease
- Klinefelter syndrome
