Is it possible to have unilateral gynecomastia?
I have been worried over the past years that I may have developed gynecomastia. The odd thing is that it only seems to be in my left nipple. Is it possible to have unilateral gynecomastia? How common is it and can I have surgery done on only one nipple and it come out looking normal?
The answer to this question is yes, it is absolutely possible to have unilateral gynecomastia. Most people, including myself, think that whatever happens to one breast has to happen to the other one. So I was extremely confused when only one of my breasts began to change in size and shape and the other one remained perfectly normal. I was told that unilateral gynecomastia is actually quite common. I stopped worrying when I heard that I was certainly not the only one who suffered from this. You can treat gynecomastia with surgery.
