Men have a small amount of estrogen, just like women who have a small amount of testosterone, but if the amount of estrogen in a man increases compared to the amount of testosterone it will cause the breast tissue to swell. Gynecomastia is generally harmless, as it will disappear over time. In addition to the increased estrogen hormone, gynecomastia may also be caused by:
