Gynaecomastia (sometimes referred to as "man boobs") is a common condition that causes men's breasts to swell and become larger than normal.
Gynaecomastia may be the result of an imbalance between the sex hormones testosterone and oestrogen. Oestrogen causes breast tissue to grow. While all men produce some oestrogen, they usually have much higher levels of testosterone, which stops the oestrogen from causing breast tissue to grow.
If the balance of hormones in the body changes, this can cause a man’s breasts to grow. Sometimes, the cause of this imbalance is unknown.
