Gynaecomastia is not at all uncommon and can occur at any age, from early adolescence. For many, it is a purely aesthetic problem and it is easy to start questioning how masculine you look with enlarged mammary glands. But it's also common for people to worry and wonder about the cause.

Can drugs cause gynaecomastia?

Many people wonder why they suffer from gynaecomastia. Common causes are:

  • Increased fat accumulation, known as pseudogynecomastia or lipomastia.
  • Hormonal imbalance between testosterone and oestrogen in the body
  • Medicines

Often the cause cannot be blamed on a single factor. There are medicines that affect the body's hormonal balance. Prostate cancer drugs, for example, but also natural remedies that increase the body's oestrogen.
