This advice is to help an 18 year old understand that Gynecomastia isn’t as serious as he thinks it is and won’t ruin his life.
The only way that Gynecomastia will ruin someones life is if they allow it. You have an opportunity right now to stand up for yourself or someone else. Don’t allow it to impact your life as greatly as it has mine or others… it’s just not worth it.

Response to: “Your Advice”
Message: “Hi Justin,
I am currently an 18 year old dealing with gynecomastia. I am a pretty fit and active person. I have never been fat and I’d like to say that I have a pretty fit body. But all of this is overshadowed by lumps under my breasts. I succeed in a lot of things that I do, yet I am still not as confident as I should be. I worry every day when a new situation will present itself where I might have to take my shirt off. I have talked with my parents and they don’t seem to think it is as big of a deal as I do. I am trying to see where they are coming from, but I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that they don’t notice “much”.
I guess I’m just asking for how you have dealt with gynecomastia in the past. Has your problem resolved itself? How do you deal with it (I know you mentioned an attitude change)?
I want to talk with my parents as well about how I feel. I’m just looking for your story and advice.
Thank you so much.”
