The web’s best resource for information about gynecomastia is www.gynecomastia.org. If you look at the section for forums, scroll down to International Forum, and you will find forums for men in several different countries such as Canada, U.K., Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, and much more. The popularity of these forums representing all these different countries shows how widespread the issue of gynecomastia is for men all over the world.
Articles appear from time to time from men who want to share their story. Recently, a man from Singapore who is referred to as David (not his real name) suffered from gynecomastia for over 20 years. In addition to his female type breasts, he had chest pain which made him wonder if he had heart problems. However, a medical exam showed that he was healthy.
David tried diet and exercise, and while he lost weight, his female breasts remained, as well as the pain in his chest. David started researching online and came to the conclusion that he may have gynecomastia, and he located a gynecomastia specialist who confirmed his suspicions. With his wife’s encouragement, David went ahead with surgery. He was so happy with his results he wanted other men to hear of his experience in the hopes that they would not wait 20 years like he did. Besides finally having a chest that made him finally feel like a “real man” his chest pain was gone.
There was another article that came out recently that states Scotland has seen a doubling of cosmetic surgeries over the last decade. Gynecomastia is one of the most sought-after procedures for men showing an increase of 13% over 2014. Scotland’s largest cities are seeing an increase of surgical clinics making cosmetic surgery more available to their population.
