Man Boobs

Since I was a teenager, I have had bigger than normal boobs for a guy. Doctors said that it will get smaller as I grow older. Well, today I am 29 years old, and they are still big. I have even lost weight, which did not make a difference. They are also very itchy, which also makes it embarrasing for me. When I was a teenager, it would sometimes get very painful and sensative, and water like substance would come out. That doesn' t happen anymore. I have also started to loose my self confidence as I do not want to swim etc anymore. What medications or what can I do to make them small so I can look more guy-like, as well as to stop the itching. I am too embarressed to got to the doctor.

Dear Poor dude
Please see your doctor, some men do have enlarged breast tissue and this can be permanently removed with a small operation if needed. It may make a huge difference in your self confidence, so be brave and see someone!

Go to and post your question there.
Sounds like prolactin Gyno. Depending on your condition there might be some remedies you could try before making that visit to the Plastic Surgeon. I know that eg Letrozole could be used in some cases to even revers gyno.
