Gyno with no cause?
I am 25 male and i have gyno. i was wondering if anyone has had this same problem? I have taken nothing. done nothing for years. Took a cycle when i was like 21. Everything bounced back fine. I work out regularly and eat regularly. I have a nodule that is sore and sensitive behind the left nipple the size of a small marble. Its been over 2 weeks and no change. no better no worse. I did start taking formadrol Xtreme and have been for over a week with no changes. Went to the doc when i had first noticed it and they did blood work and said things were normal. Even had a mammogram ??? and they had confirmed it as gyno. Doc said if it doesnt go away then consider surgery. WTF?? anyone have any ideas/thoughts? please help!

Mine has gotten slowly bigger over 20 years. Getting it out in May. So from my experience I would say you're not too old.

if you dont mind me asking what was your test levels the last time you had them checked? also, you ever tried nolva? if so did it help? last, if i demand my doc to prescribe nolva and told him surgery was not an option for me you think he'd do it? Sorry for the bombardment of questions. Im just real frustrated...

Last total test result was 20 nmol/L. Had a few hormone profiles done over the years (estradiol, test, and prolactin) and they all came back middle range.
Even though it will still be called gyno, sometimes it is not glandular tissue. My bro had something similar, also only on one side, and it was just some fibrous tissue build up. In his case, and I suspect mine, it was not hormone related.
Consequently, Nolva would not have done anything. I can't guess what your doc would say to the idea but from my experience, only an endocrinologist would understand what you were asking.

Yeah nolva is used for women correct? so if i'd ask him for arimidex or nolva he'd be like "why?" cuz nolva is only used for gyno on an underground level. sound right?

Its weird like in the morning it'll be flared up and later in the day its seems somewhat smaller. Maybe cuz test levels are higher in the morning? Well i have been taking formadrol xtreme and nothing has changed. I dont think its potent enough to deal with gyno. I've had gyno in the past on other ocassions when i had taken a steroid cycle a couple years back. I know what it feels like and when i had it, my endo prescribed me arimidex and it went away in a week or two. I called the doc today and im waiting for his answer...

I just noticed a hard knot behind right nipple, about the size of a BB. This is most likely from being involved in the hormonal game. But I started on DHEA & fenugreek recently, not as part of a PCT. I have stopped using those two. I'll wait two weeks max, if that doesn't work I'll be using a very low dose of Epistane I have handy for 2 weeks +. Better to be aggressive with it immediately. Using the same substance that MAY/probably caused this in the first place is funny to me though, but seems to work for some people. After that its off to see Dr. I just don't want it to get worse. It's not visible so I don't care, but it could grow, especially if I go AAS/PH again. I'm now more prone to it. First time this has ever happened in years of use though. It was bound to pop up at some point. I have and am willing to pay this price for using hormonals. No crying here.

I too had gyno and eventually had the surgery to get it removed. Not sure if you know this, but very few insurance plans offer it. I have heard military insurance pays for it, and actually have read some sad stories about young guys attempting suicide then having a psychiatrist write a referral that gyno is severely affecting their life, and then have to prove to the insurance company that it wasn't drug induced. You have to have it done by a plastic surgeon.
As far as I know, once the tissue/gland is there, its there until it is removed. You can take stuff to stop the growth obviously. visit gynecomastia.org and there is a forum, any question you have can be answered by some of the top gyno surgeons in the country.
Hope this helps.

Gynecomastia is the result of elevated estrogen and testosterone in the younger years. Kids that jack off a lot have a higher potential for it.
Surgery is about the only option, but leaning out a lot will make it much less noticeable. A lot of times the tissue can draw extra fat around it and make the significance worse.
If you make sure your nipples are hard when you go somewhere or with someone you won't notice it much at all.

Ejaculation causes a huge rise in prolactin - that's what keeps you from going again right afterwards. It is also why you can have multiple orgasms on cabergoline.
