I am a 38 yr old male, good health, 6'1, 170 pounds. I was diagnosed with bilateral gynecemastia lat year. I had the surgery May 13, 2009, I am currently recovering nicely. I hasd one post op with my surgeon and have to wear the compression bandage for another three weeks, then another post op visit.
I had a blood test sent to an Endo, she in turn asked for another one, to test for Prolactin levels. My surgeon informed me the tumor mass taken out of both sides of my chest was the size of my palm! It was quite a large mass. Unsure of the cause of the gyno, and what little knowledge I have compared to the pros, can my gyno return? My appt with the Endo is not until Dec 8, 2009. If escess estrogen caused this mass or excess Prolactin, and it was being deposited at the breat tissue, whats to say that I am still not producing either of these and where is it now being deposited??
P.S. I had noticed gyno when I was about 16 (though I did not know what it was) It was only in the last year that it started hurting. My Father also developed a large chest faster than the rest of him when he was young also. I noticed it when I would carry drywall or plywood and the pressure would cause pain. Also, whenever I got sexually excited, there would be a sharp peircing pain in my nipples.
Any help would be most appreciated. I am currently waiting for the blood tests concerning my Prolactin levels.
