How is gynecomastia diagnosed?

Since gynecomastia is usually a side effect of puberty, there is no need for diagnosis. If the breasts do not flatten out, however, your doctor can do a routine check-up to make sure there’s no underlying issue.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
