Gynecomastia Talk / Re: Sizing
« Last post by aboywithgirls on Today at 06:59:53 AM »
Generally speaking. Men do have a more broad chest than most women. I think that if you have early onset gynecomastia during puberty, you will likely have more of a narrow, feminine shaped chest as well as a more feminine shaped breast. 

I was probably 10 or 11 years old when I started developing breasts.  I had early onset gynecomastia. I was wearing a 36D when I graduated high school. 

Every one is unique in breast size and shape. Even breasts on the same chest are not identical. I know that having a professional bra fitting is not for everyone. However it is usually the best way to get the best fit with a bra that suits your individual needs.

Up until a couple years ago. I had a couple of different ladies tankini tops that resembles a tank top. They were solid black or blue. They had built in support too. I was able to enjoy the sun and swim without being in a wet tshirt contest.

Ask a Doctor / Question About Pain And Hyper-Sensitivity
« Last post by UniquelyDefined on Today at 04:17:07 AM »
I am a thirty four year old male who experimented with cross gender hormone replacement therapy because I was questioning my gender. I won't go into that further, but it was a mistake and I immediately regretted it once it began to cause radical and rapid changes to my chest. I used Spironolactone and Estradiol for one month, and during that time developed gynecomastia that an ultrasound has measured as three centimeters. The ultrasound found nothing malignant or unusual beyond enlarged breast gland tissue. It has now been nine weeks since I stopped hormone replacement. I have been using Tamoxifen for two weeks and the ultrasound was taken after that time, and probably represents some improvement.

My problem is not appearance. I think I look just fine. It looked worse before, but the look of my chest has basically normalized over the last nine weeks. My nipples seem to be permanently enlarged, however, and are about three times their original size. My problem is that I have persistent pain and hyper-sensitivity in my right breast. It makes it difficult for me to wear clothing because my nipple feels too sensitive to rub on fabric. I also feel that there is a deeper pain beneath the skin, which I find difficult to locate, but which is constant and interferes with my ability to focus on anything else. It is not a livable situation.

My question is: Do I need surgery to correct this pain and discomfort? Can surgery even correct this kind of sensation problem? I have spoken with two general practitioners and three plastic surgeons and no one seems to understand what has happened to me or be able to give me clear advice. It seems that this kind of persistent pain and hyper-sensitivity is very unusual. I've been told that I should wait for six months before I do surgery, because often the condition corrects itself, but all the doctors I spoke with said they have no idea if this waiting will help with the pain and sensitivity. They also seem uncertain if the surgery will correct it.

Can anyone please advise me? I am unable to live my life due to this unmanageable discomfort. I feel worried to do cosmetic surgery because my appearance is acceptable to me, and I have been warned it can sometimes make things worse. What should I do?

S: I agree with the others that you have gynecomastia. 

I like the pullover style also, though I have also worn regular bras.  Most of the 'regular' ones support my breasts but have too much fabric on top of the breast - a common occurence.

Thanks. I reckon it's time. I'll check out the Adidas. Buying it is the issue. Don't suppose your wife has another one for me...:)

Your boobs look very much like mine. I've had good luck with sports bras. I'm just not ready for the strap hardware that makes it apparent that I'm wearing one. My absolute favorite is an Adidas racerback bra that my wife gave me. Good luck in your journey.

I swim in a large outdoor hot springs pool once or twice a year.  I don't wear a bra to the pool, but I am usually not the only guy there with boobs and usually not the largest.  People don't notice as much as you think they do.

Doesn't look like gyno to me, but I'm certainly no expert. I would be thrilled to have a chest like yours instead of the 42B's I'm sporting.

Acceptance / They've grown on me

I've hated these for 40 years. But now, and it's been a slow process, I love them. Not enough yet to go swimming, wear a T-Shirt in public, or turn up to work without a compression vest. But getting there. I'm so glad I couldn't afford the surgery way back when.

I would agree that it is possible to grow quickly. With exercise and building muscle, the hormone stew, medications, food intake, etc... IF the same bra was purchased in a different size, it may be possible to be constructed differently, thus fitting differently.
