Gynecomastia Talk / Re: Sizing
« Last post by Denny on Yesterday at 09:25:14 PM »
I am in the same position. I will be seeing a doctor in about a month. I know because of my family history they will want a mammogram. I am now a 40C. I am also in my 50s and will not get surgery. I like to run and lately the only way I can run without pain is to wear a sports bra. I don't understand and am trying to figure things out one day at a time. You are not alone.

I would like to thank you all for your comments and making me feel welcomed. I would also like to thank you all for respecting my wishes to not expose my breasts whether with a bra or braless. And to not receive anything of the same. This is a different position for me and I know you all went through it in your own way. And that is what I am trying to do. I decided to tell a couple of my family members about it. This is going to be a huge step for me. I will let you all know how it goes. Please, if you don't mind, would you say a prayer for me. Thank you all.

Gynecomastia Talk / Re: Sizing

I just wanna see if there’s anything to be concerned about. In roughly a two year. I went from a fat chest to enlarged Aerolas, larger nipples and what feels like definite growth. Both sides feel like somethings growing in there. I asked my doctor for a mammogram after he did a physical exam and he agreed just to make sure there’s no problems. But getting to that point is a major pain in the ass. It’s really all I want to do is verify and get the doctor to run a scan and  my blood work looks relatively OK but I have fluctuating up-and-down testosterone levels. Between 10 years ago and now I’ve gained about 65 pounds. The doctor thinks because of my weight gain is causing my T to convert to E through aromatase. I’m not on any medication‘s that would’ve triggered this that I know of I asked about going to an endocrinologist he wants to hold off until the results of the scanner back.  I’m just happy I’m getting the scan done.  And all I was asking about when it came to the scan is if they’re able to measure how much actual breast tissue you have on both sides and how dense is it and how far along is it like the Tanner stages.   Those are the things I’m curious about because to be honest I’m not a doctor I don’t know I’m trying to ask the professionals so they can tell me.  I’m in my mid-50s they really don’t bother me. If I was in my 20s I would probably opt for surgery but judging by the amount of growth that I have and from what I’ve seen online I think I would be looking at a major procedure and If they’re not causing me a health issue then why operate?!

Finally…

Got in to see Endo, new labs drawn… more detailed than Urologist’s

Prolactin level elevated 3 ng/dl over normal

FSH is elevated 5 x over normal
LH is elevated 9 x over normal

But estradiol is at upper level of normal
E/T ratio is 16.9 ( using the last T value

A fractionated T level is still pending
Will recalculate E/T ratio when it is reported

Testicular US shows some abnormalities with no definitive Dx

Awaiting a callback from Endocrinologist

So,no explanation as to why I have large breasts yet
And the mystery continues …

At least the have progressed to an odd sensation rather than pain for last 8 months

Your question is rather unique because the measurements you're talking about are the kind that might be done during a scan to see if you have breast cancer.  I'm sorry you're going through that.  I hope it is routine and not the result of an exam that found a lump.  Men here with gynecomastia will occasionally have mammograms as part of their regular health checkup.  I've not done that but my breast growth has really escalated the last few years when COVID has made trips to the doctors office rare as hen's teeth.

I also read your comment that the breast growth you're experiencing is not a problem.  That said, you did ask about brassieres and two regulars chimed in.  I'm another person who hasn't felt the need to wear a brassiere, despite breast growth, but I am a person who wanted to experiment with the experience.  I've enjoyed it, but then I'm a bit kinky.  Looking for an attractive brassiere and then seeing how it can enhance the appearance of my breasts are things I enjoy.  I'm pretty certain others in this group feel the same, though they aren't as likely to say that.  There are good arguments in support of men wearing brassieres, but it is still far from the norm.  You'll have to decide for yourself whether you want to try a walk on the wild side.  Good luck with the scan.

Sex / Re: Before and After

I don't think that this is any different to accepting and enjoying any physical attribute of our partners. A long time ago I had a girlfriend who wore a 32B bra. When she wasn't my girlfriend anymore but my wife, she wore 34B bras. Now, decades later, she wears 40D's and is now moving to 40DD's or 42C's. I've always enjoyed them, whether they were a small handful back then or something that I can bounce around now. It made no difference to me, and the reaction has always been the same - "Stop" with rolled eyes, but a smile at the same time.... Offsetting this, I certainly get a lot more attention nowadays too, even though I am still relatively small, mainly because of the way that I present myself. Over the past few months I have been far more relaxed about being accepted for how I am, and it has paid dividends. I love the attention that I get nightly, tolerating the irritation because my wife wants to go for it.

"she enjoyed the responses that I would elicit. As a result, she was also educating me on what she liked."

So true!!! ;)

Acceptance / Re: Do you like wearing a bra

I'll jump into this conversation... after many weeks of not visiting this website.  I've never worn a brassiere every day and don't expect I ever will.  Yes, my breasts are large enough to warrant wearing a brassiere but I've lived so many years masking the appearance of my chest that even as my breasts have grown, which they have the last few years, I get along fine with a dark tee shirt and a unbuttoned cotton shirt covering my curves.  That said, I do on occasion wear a brassiere and I enjoy the experience... not because I'm trying to deal with back pain or sensitive nipples.  There is a bit of a sexual charge from finding a great looking brassiere and in appreciating how it does its job... showing off my breasts.  Funny thing is I have no interest in transitioning as Sophie has done but I find myself enjoying my breasts after a lifetime of embarrassment over my fleshy chest.  Hanging out with other men talking about selecting and wearing brassieres definitely helps with self-acceptance, though most often men prefer talking about the mechanics of it all rather than the sensuality of it.  There is room for all of it... all of us.  :)

Torrid is very open as well.  Recently have had good luck with them. They're a favorite of Sophia's too.
I'll look torrid up and see if there is one around me. Thanks 😊
