Gynecomastia is the glandular proliferation of male breast tissue, involving up to 65% of men in their lifetime. It is often a benign condition, but it can be the sign of a serious endocrine disease and the source of significant physical and psychological stress. It is important to understand its pathogenesis in order to distinguish a normal developmental variant from pathological causes and to guide a correct treatment on its specific cause.
