Some boys find that their breasts grow big at puberty. Is this something to worry about?
No. This simply reflects the hormonal change that they are going through. The condition is known as gynecomastia and its concerns are purely cosmetic. Most boys find the development embarrassing and worry being sniggered at by their peer group.
What is the treatment?
In more than 50 per cent cases, within two to three years the enlargement disappears by itself. In the remaining, if the problem is severe, a simple surgery can undo the damage.
Yes, but it is rather rare.
