While women tend to get a bad rap for being overly critical or self-conscious of their bodies, it’s not uncommon for men to feel exactly the same way. Besides weight gain, unusually large breasts in men will definitely make any guy feel shy about their body.
There is actually a medical term for this condition. It’s called gynaecomastia and essentially it is a disorder that involves the overdevelopment of the male breast. The less technical term for this endocrine disorder is “man boobs”.
Gynaecomastia affects approximately one third of all Australian men, causing them to be extremely self-conscious about their appearance, especially in situations where they have to remove their shirt, like at the beach or the bedroom.
