Gynecomastia For Body Builders

Anabolic steroid use is one of the primary causes of gynecomastia for body builders. For men who already have some signs of the condition, using steroids will increase their chances of developing the condition. Using anabolic steroids provides the body with an extra source of hormone that causes the testes to reduce their normal production of testosterone, thus increasing the creation of estrogen. Once the breast tissue has formed, the size of the breast will not return to its original size even after steroid use has subsisted. Currently, there is no effective drug treatment to prevent gynecomastia, as surgery is the only solution for treatment.
