Gynecomastia emerges as a benign lesion comprised of enlargement of male breast. Characteristically, a palpable sub-areolar tumefaction is encountered. Notwithstanding, female beast may delineate morphologically identical gynecomastoid hyperplasia of mammary tissue. The benign neoplasm expounds proliferation of ductal epithelial cells and stromal tissue with characteristic occurrence of ‘stromal cuffing’. Typically, lesion depicts ducts coated by three layers of epithelial cells. Foci of pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia may concur. Gynecomastia delineates a tri-modal distribution of disease occurrence as ~lesions discerned within infancy or neonatal period ~lesions exemplified within puberty with peak incidence between 13 years to 14 years ~lesions emerging within adult male subjects between 50 years to 80 years, possibly due to quantifiably elevated adipose tissue, decimated serum testosterone levels or ingestion of certain medications.
