Gynecomastia: Male Breast Disease
There are more than three million cases of gynecomastia reported yearly. Gynecomastia is a male breast disease and generally is not a serious condition. It normally goes away on its own, but if it persists, medication and surgery may be a treatment option.
Gynecomastia may be associated with an increased risk of breast cancer in men. Dr. Zeynep Bostanci, breast surgeon with Ironwood Women’s Centers discusses gynecomastia and male breast cancer in this video.
Dr. Bostanci joined Ironwood Women’s Centers in September 2017.

Dr. Bostanci is a Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO) and Breast Oncology Fellowship trained breast surgeon. She is Board Certified by the American Board of Surgery.
