X-rays for Gynecomastia Male Breast Reduction

Mammograms are X-rays of breast tissue, nipple and areola regions, and the lower axilla (armpits). They are done with special machines that compress the tissue for the exam. Male breast examinations comprise less than 1% of mammographic studies.

Male mammograms can be used to diagnose cancer, gynecomastia, and other breast problems. Not gynecomastia patients need such X-rays. Dr. Bermant prefers to examine each individual before deciding if mammograms are indicated. Typical reasons that may raise concerns include:

  • Firm breast lump
  • Enlarging mass
  • Nipple discharge
  • Nipple changes
  • Klinefelter's Syndrome patients and others who may be at higher risk for breast cancer
  • Males on long term estrogen therapy

Thicker tissue on a mammogram is more white. In gynecomastia, there is a fan shaped density under the nipple that gradually blends into the surrounding fat. Learn more about Gynecomastia Tests and Diagnosis.

Mammograms in men can be helpful when there is a clinical suspicion of cancer. There is a specific look to male breast cancer that can be seen on male mammography. We prefer to use a special mammography service with radiologists experienced with male chest studies.

Dr. Bermant is not able to answer your questions about mammography unless you are one of our patients.
