    Low Testosterone and Male Breasts

    December 14, 2016

    Testosterone commonly referred to as male hormone. Imbalance in testosterone levels can cause different changes in your body. Testosterone is responsible for sexual features and overall growth of reproductive organs in men. The common condition seen in men due to low testosterone levels is gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is a condition in which the breast gets enlarged.

    Gynecomastia generally occurs when the estrogen level increases due to decrease in the testosterone levels in your body. Low testosterone has a negative impact on man’s sex drive and mood.  Low testosterone is also considered as hypogonadism that is reported in aged men.

    • Reduced libido
    • Poor sperm count
    • Erectile dysfunction
    • Enlarges breast or gynecomastia


    Men generally produce both estrogen and testosterone. If a man’s testosterone level is decreased in comparison to estrogen, or if the estrogen is produced in excess in comparison to testosterone, gynecomastia generally occurs.

    Hormonal changes are generally reported in males when they reach puberty. Hormonal imbalance may resolve on its own with time in most of the cases and does not lead to gynecomastia. Breast tissues may be more in one or both the breasts. Low testosterone and gynecomastia both can be treated and it does not lead to any chronic condition.
