I am a healthy/active 33 year old male recently diagnosed with gynecomastia by my primary care physician. I have a small lump behind my left nipple that is slightly sore to the touch and feels obviously abnormal. I have had bloodwork done and a chest x-ray recommended by my doctor. Both came back normal. I did not get what I thought was a solid answer from my doctor regarding the cause of my condition. My bloodwork results all came back normal. I requested that my testosterone level be checked and he said it came back fine. I have used pro-hormones (weight lifting cycle) in the past but always made sure to use post cycle therapy after completing a cycle. I have not used pro-hormones in almost a year and never had any problems with gyno during or after a cycle. I told my doctor all of this information and I just can't seem to get a solid answer as to why I would have a gyno flare up now. I do, on occasion (once a month maybe), smoke marijuana and my doctor said this could possibly be the cause. He said he saw it alot back in the 70's when marijuana was more prominent. I find it had to believe this is the cause for my condition. I have had the nipple tenderness and swelling for almost a month now and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. My doctor wants me to get a mammogram but says it's not of utmost importance at this time. What can I do??? Will the condition subside with time? Is there anything I can do to relieve the symptoms?? PLEASE ANY INFORMATION WILL BE OF GREAT HELP!! THANKS

Mike
