Avatar f tn Try starting counseling as well for the depression and Gynecomastia. The gynecomastia leads to body disturbances for males especially at a young age. This can be causing a big part of the depression. Also talk to the health care provider about weight and see if this could have something to do about the low testosterone levels.
Avatar m tn Early epiphesis closure results in cessation of bone growth, also a sign of high testosterone level. Gynecomastia is guys your age usually disappears after a few months, but since yours has lasted 2 years it may be permanent. Nothing to be ashamed of.
Avatar f tn Hello and welcome to our site and forum. I agree with Jack650's comments. This is likely gynecomastia and you can read more about it here https://www.webmd.com/men/what-is-gynecomastia#1 Please let us know your thoughts on this information.
Avatar m tn In addition, excessive weight may contribute to hormonal imbalances in testosterone and estrogen, allowing actual breast tissue to develop. While most cases of gynecomastia resolve themselves over time, additional medical procedures may be needed to reduce the excessive skin that has developed or to remove actual breast tissue if it has formed over time. All this being said you should see your doctor! Don't be ashamed!!
Avatar m tn Hi, To be sure, you need to consult an Endocrinologist and get tested. If you are generally healthy and the gynecomastia is not all that pronounced, you need not have to worry. If you need to test, a blood test for total testosterone and estrogen will generally indicate if you have any problem. You may also Google for ' klinefelter's syndrome ' and check if you have those symptoms. How did you know that you had hormone imbalance during puberty?
Avatar m tn t answer a lot of your questions, being female and all, but I can tell you that my brother has alot of the same issues. He is overweight and smokes, but he also had his hormones tested and his testosterone levels were off-the-chart LOW. This has led to even more weight-gain for him and very low libido. He was told there was nothing they could do about his low testosterone, but I have heard that they can give you testosterone injections.
Avatar m tn For the other problems -- low libido, weak erections and no spontaneous erections it may be worth your while to go on a trial of testosterone replacement therapy.
Avatar m tn I am a 26 year old male overweight, but two months ago changed my lifestyle. I quit smoking, started dieting, exercising, and sleeping better. I have noticed an improvement if feeling of wellbeing, but still have some symptoms of low testosterone.
Avatar m tn I've recently taken a blood test and my testosterone levels seem pretty low (total 382ng/dL, free 8.3pg/mL), DHEA levels are 505.7ug/dL. I'm 28 and I've been having issues with sleep for most of my 20's and teens. I've also been experiencing some minimal gynecomastia (for several years) and general exhaustion. I don't come from a hairy family but have noticed, it can take several weeks before I need to shave.
Avatar f tn I have complete erectyle dysfunction,non existential libido since last 2 and half years. I have done two tests of testosterone and estradol. The levels were as follows- testosterone 644 pg/ml (biological reference level 210-1100) and estradol e2 levels were 44pg/ml(biological reference level <25) I have grade 3 gynecomastia since last 2 years. Please help me ou doctor or ill die like this.
Avatar m tn The decrease in bioavailable testosterone can then result in declines in sexual function and muscle and red cell mass, and contribute to the loss of bone density.”22 3. Soy and fish oil keep estrogen and SHBG in check. Another Japanese study examined how the essential fatty acids EPA and DHA (found in high concentrations in fish) affected SHBG levels in men 43 to 88 years of age.
Avatar m tn s relevant, but hey why not, I suspect have gynecomastia. My areolas are large and puffy and there seems to be something hard underneath them. Penis size is small, almost 2 inches flaccid and 4.5 inches erect. Could this be attributed to my low end testosterone levels?
Avatar m tn I went to the doctor and then all of this started. I am a 25 year old male 280lbs and I used to smoke cigarettes and marijuana. I started having erection problems about 4 years ago. It was once in a while not all the time. Now it is still the same situation. I can masturbate with no problem I get erections when I am asleep I dont know how often but my girlfriend and i checked a couple of times I get morning wood sometimes but not always like before. I take viagra sometimes.
Avatar m tn If your hormonal changes are not corrected, you may have an increased risk to develop testis cancer (for which you may want to have regular visits with your doctor), more than the possibility that there is already testicular cancer responsible for the gynecomastia and other changes. Discuss things with your doctor.
Avatar m tn Also facing the issue of Hormonal variations, my testosterone sometime is normal and sometime zero and E2 also varies accordingly and now its very high.

Avatar m tn What you have is probably due to a benign condition called Gynecomastia,which is very common in teenagers and is caused by an imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone,which promotes tissue growth or a painful lump under the nipple area in one or both breasts. Generally,Gynecomastia isn't a serious problem,and sometimes goes away on it's own after a while...
Avatar m tn I am a 25 year old male about 100 pounds overweight not really active and have a sedentary job. I have been having many symptoms of low testosterone including ed and gynecomastia. I recently took a hormone test and the results were: Dhea(NL) 458ng/DL Ref range142-1410 Testosterone, total (DSL) 346Ng/DL Ref range 190-1037 Estradiol (DSL) 32 PG/ML None given Cortisol 14.
Avatar f tn t have such symptoms as reduced growth of the beard, lack of hair on the legs, gynecomastia. You really weigh little, try to work out (training with iron) and see if muscle mass increases or not. If testosterone is all right, then you will be gaining muscles. At the same time, libido will also increase. And do stop smoking, pity your blood vessels. If you didn't feel negative effects of smoking at 18, the situation at 23 can be different.
Avatar m tn I have gone through a whole slew of tests from ekg, basic blood work, stress test, hormone test and ultrasound of breasts and armpits. Nothing found except bad cholesterol a little high and testosterone in low to mid range, but within range. I really have become a hypochondriac and have this cancer phobia. I am trying to change my life and become healthier, but this fear is so hard to overcome. I quit smoking (after eight years) and changed my diet.
1084115 tn?1385228589 For a male there is a loss of the ability for the body to process testosterone and so there is a build of female hormones. The ratio of testosterone to estrogen balance is altered. This build up of female hormones can lead to the appearance of spider veins on the skin, a loss of body hair including pubic hair and Gynecomastia, the growth of breast tissue with the presence of a rubbery or firm mass extending concentrically from the nipples and testicular atrophy.
