User avatar I would suggest a consultation with an endocrinologist. This sounds like the common condition called gynecomastia and it can result from hormonal problems - even such things as thyroid disorders so it would warrant a workup.

If it is due to extra fatty tissue it is called pseudogynecomastia and weight loss will resolve it. Breast reduction surgery can be done to treat this problem.

Best wishes.
