The medical term for presence of breasts in males is gynecomastia. The reason for it is not clear yet but it is considered that hormonal changes, intake of anabolic steroids, alcohol consumption, drug abuse etc., contribute to this change. This condition is characterized by increase of the mammary gland and the tissues around it which leads to emotional and aesthetic discomfort. The surgical approach has no alternatives for solving this problem.
