'My struggle with moobs'
Gynecomastia - i.e. 'man boob syndrome' - occurs in between 40 and 60 percent of men, and is generally caused by a hormone imbalance that starts during puberty.
CONCLUSIONS: Mammography and ultrasound remain the leading modalities in breast imaging among males for diagnostic workup of palpable mass, with gynecomastia being the predominant diagnosis. However, presentation with palpable mass was also associated with malignancy. Despite a notable MBC rate in our cohort, the likelihood of cancer is low in young patients and in cases of gynecomastia.

Rationale: Prepubertal unilateral gynecomastia is extremely rare, whose etiology and management strategy are not familiar. We would like to present a case and a literature review of unilateral prepubertal gynecomastia. Patient concerns: A 11-year old male patient with complaints of unilateral enlargement of breast tissue presented in our clinic, whose physical examination, biochemical, hormonal and oncologic findings were normal. Diagnoses: This patient was diagnosed as idiopathic unilateral prepubertal gynecomastia (IUPG) and self-abasement, social isolation and sensitive of interpersonal relationship. Interventi...
ConclusionsThis technique namely the “modified Benilli technique” provides a relatively simple method with an aesthetically good outcome to treat gynecomastia with a low rate of complications and recurrences.
We describe a 65-year-old man who presented with arthralgia, reduced body hair and gynecomastia. He showed severe pancytopaenia. Laboratory examination revealed high follicle-stimulating hormone, low testosterone and oestradiol, elevated antinuclear antibodies, anti-dsDNA and ESR levels, as well as low complement levels. An electrocardiogram showed atrial fibrillation. Computed tomography and dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry showed pleural effusion and osteoporosis. Chromosome analysis revealed 47, XXY karyotype. The unifying diagnosis was therefore Klinefelter's syndrome (KS) with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), with ...
Numerous advancements have been made in the surgical treatment of gynecomastia. However, one of the greatest challenges faced is the complete excision of the fibrous breast disc. We aim to review and compare the outcomes of the microdebrider excision and liposuction technique (MELT) with other techniques employed at our institution.
ConclusionsThis technique namely the "modified Benilli technique" provides a relatively simple method with an aesthetically good outcome to treat gynecomastia with a low rate of complications and recurrences.
A 54-year-old man with mesenteric carcinoid tumor metastatic to the liver completed staging 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT demonstrating uptake in multiple hepatic lesions consistent with liver metastases with additional asymmetric increased uptake in the right greater than the left breast. Subsequent bilateral diagnostic mammogram revealed benign right greater than left gynecomastia without suspicious underlying mass. With Food and Drug Administration approval of 68Ga-DOTATATE and the increased use of this analog in neuroendocrine tumor imaging, this case illustrates a relevant example of uptake that can potentially mimic malignancy.
