This is benign enlargement of the lacteal (or breast) glands of men. As a rule, they distinguish between true gynecomastia and false, or pseudo-gynecomastia.
True gynecomastia is caused by the proliferation of the glandular tissue of the mammary gland. Such gynecomastia, as well as mastopathy, can be in the diffuse and nodular form. Gynecomastia can be accompanied by painful sensations and secretions from the nipple (transparent, cloudy, bloody, colostrum). The mammary glands enlarge, become dense, sometimes painful.
In case of the false gynecomastia, the increase in the volume of the mammary gland is associated with fat deposits. In addition, in some cases obesity can be combined with true gynecomastia.
