What are Man Boobs ?

Man boobs is a commonly used term for a condition called Gynocomastia. The condition is brought about in men due to a hormone imbalance in the body.

Having man boobs is a serious and a distressing condition in a lot of men and is no laughing matter. The condition can be particularly embarrassing when you are in a social gathering, say on the beach or at a swimming pool and are expected to take off your shirt.

The man boobs condition can be affect men of all ages but the condition is particularly common in men who are aged above 40. This is due to the fact that men at that age start experiencing a natural reduction in testosterone and an increase in the levels of Estrogen as a result of the higher levels of body fat.
