What Is The Difference Between Gynecomastia and Pseudo Gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia : Gynecomastia is a benign enlargement of the male breast tissue. Gynae means “woman” and mastos means “breast” in Greek. It can be defined as the presence of >2 cm of palpable, firm, subareolar gland and ductal breast tissue.

In teenagers, puberty causes hormones to go haywire — and sometimes, testosterone levels drop so low that existing oestrogen causes breast tissue growth. Finally, older men tend to develop gynecomastia due to less production of testosterone with age.
