Re: lumps in breast (male)...
Just a little FYI . . .
Gynecomastia . . . is an "overdevelopment" of the male breast. It occurs when the glandular tissue of the breast swells. It can occur in males of all ages (infant-adulthood). In adult males it can be caused by by many things, overactive thyroid, hormone problems, pituitary/adrenal gland problems, etc. Certain medications can also cause gynecomastia such as steroids (prednisone/hexadrol), medicine used to treat ulcers and epilepsy such as cimetidine and dilantin; anticancer drugs, antiandrogen drugs (flutamide, cyproterone) and antianxiety and antidepressants such as valium and tricyclic antidepressants.
