Gynecomastia is a benign swelling of the mammary gland in men with hypertrophy of the gland as well as fatty tissue. During the period of puberty, painful hardening (induration) of the mammary gland often develops, which later disappears on its own. The enlargement size of the mammary gland could be from 1-10cm. Its average size is approximately 4cm.
Prior to the excision of the lesion, ultrasound investigations, patient consultation by an oncologist as well as laboratory investigations are carried out in our clinic. The operation is performed practically without bleeding since vascular coagulation occurs with incision at the same time. The excised lesions obligatorily sent for histological investigations to be performed.
