Gynecomastia (male breast)
Wow what an embarrassing topic...
Anyway, I'm 26 years old. When I was younger going through puberty I was sort of chunky, not fat just a little chunk. I had little man- boobs too. As I grew taller and I got older my fat vanished, but my chest still had a little. They didn't appear like breasts though, they looked like I worked out and had some muscle. Until the past few years.
I've gained some weight. Almost all the weight went to my stomach, hips, and unfortunately, my chest also.
I have thin legs, thin arms, thin face and neck. But my torso hogs all the fat from the rest of my body...
Anyway- this is supposed to be about man breasts.
I'm extremely embarrassed about asking my doctor. I'm sure he's noticed I have slight man breasts, but I didn't mention it, and neither did he because it's probably not a big deal, medically.
How do I know if I have a hormone imbalance or what the cause of it is? I'll admit I haven't done much (anything) to get rid of them. I just hide them by choosing my clothing precisely.
I've heard alcohol can contribute to male chest fat, and lucky me- I'm an alcoholic. I don't drink every day, I try to stick to my rule of only drinking on weekends, but even still- I drink a lot on weekends and I'm not talking bud light, I'm talking real beers and whiskey.
One fear I have is if I lose weight, it will be across my whole body. Well I can't afford to lose weight in my face, or my legs, arms, or neck. Those parts of my body are already thin. If I lose more weight there I'll be a twig.
How can I make sure to keep the mass on my other body parts, but tone up, and ditch my female-like curves between my waist and neck???
