"How is gynecomastia treated?
In most cases, no treatment is needed. Your doctor will probably want to check the size of your breast tissue every few months. In 90% of teenage boys, gynecomastia goes away in less than 3 years.
Sometimes the problem can be solved if you stop taking a medicine that is causing gynecomastia or stop using an illegal drug that is causing the problem.
Occasionally, medicines may be used to treat gynecomastia, especially if tenderness is a problem. The medicine will make the extra breast tissue go away. Rarely, surgery may be necessary to remove the extra breast tissue.
If gynecomastia is caused by a disease or a tumor, treatment is necessary. If gynecomastia is caused by a disease, the disease itself will need to be treated."
I went to my doctor the other day and he also told me that the "surgery is the ONLY way to rid gyne" is FALSE... I just wanted to throw this out there because I see it being thrown around on BB a lot... I'm coming up on my third year having it and it seems like it could be going down on it's own, but i still have an appointment at my endocrinologist in June.

IF YOU HAVE PUBERTAL GYNO THAT HAS NOT FIXED ITSELF BY THE TIME YOU ENTER YOUR EARLY 20'S, YOU MUST HAVE SURGERY TO GET RID OF IT.

"In boys, it usually lasts for three to six months or less, and then goes away in the vast majority of cases. About 5 percent will have persistent gynecomastia. If it is particularly distressing or painful, the medication tamoxifen can help. Up to 80 percent of individuals will have some improvement using tamoxifen. If that doesn't help, then a plastic surgeon can remove the extra tissue."
