Teenage Gynecomastia - Travel from the Caribbean
This young man was embarrassed by his very large breasts that started about the age of 10. The breasts size has been stable for the past 3 years. He was evaluated by an endocrinologist back home in Trinidad and Tobago. Although Dr. Bermant recommended weight loss first, the size of the breasts was just too large to enjoy activities. He particularly found it difficult to be around others with his shirt off. Please start here to learn more about this teenager with gynecomastia.
