A condition that causes enlargement of male breast tissue is called Gynecomastia or people often call it as Man Boobs. Hormones are triggered during puberty which can lead to the growth of the male breast. These breasts tissues are expected to get shrink after puberty in some cases but mostly they remain enlarged. Gynecomastia is usually painless and appears as a rubbery mass beneath the nipple's surface and sometimes it can cause soreness or sensitivity in the affected area. It can occur on either one side or on both sides of the breasts.  The number of men looking for gynecomastia surgery in India has significantly increased throughout the years as it is a matter of shame and embarrassment for them.
