Here goes: I am a 16 year old guy, and I have breasts. I wanna clear this up, I'm not fat (6'4'' 180), My doctors think it's hormonal. Anyway, they tend to get in the way when I do things like climbing, kayaking, running, and so on. I posted this question in another forum, and they suggested asking some females, and I thought this my be the place to do that. I am serious, I've put up with too much crap from peers for me to be joking about this. Anything you could tell me would help. Thank You!

Your a pretty big fella at 6'4"... have you ever used steroids? At 16 years old the use of steroids would greatly alter the normal hormonal balances and could cause this type of problem in males. If this is not the case and you've never used steroids then I suggest you goto a doctor and see what he says (if you have, please let us know what his suggestions were). It may not be surprising that your doctor suggests the use of steroids to speed up your testosterone.

daisyfay is right, the way we women folk keep those two lumps on our chests out of the way is with a sports bra. If you're smaller then you should find one that fits pretty easily. Of course then there's the embaresment factor... just how big are they??

  I think you should speak to a qualified plastic surgeon.
Are your parents supportive of your plight?
If they are just have them go with you and figure out your best options for a successful healthy removal.( You probably need their consent, because of your age.)
I don't think the people who suggested a sports bra have any empathy for what obviously is a very uncomfortable situation for a 16 year old male, both physically and emotionally. Good luck.

My parents have kind of taken the "there's no way we're gonna pay for you to get plastic surgery" route. Which has left me to figure things out. To tell you the truth, the bras do kinda help when I'm excerisizing or doing anything like that. I've been getting a lot of advice from friends, though.

Maybe this is prying, but why won't your parents consider the surgery? The whole situation's obviously causing you trouble.

Have you thought about talking to your doctor about the surgery-thing, and then having your doctor talk to the 'rents, or has this already happened?

BTW, if you can find Speedo sports bras, they're a lot better than those "uniboob" things without separate cups, and they won't show as much under a t-shirt.

well if your parents will consent to plastic surgery but won't pay for it,there might be some solutions. Most insurance companies should may for plastic surgery that has a medical necessity. I would think you should qualify,then there might be a fractional difference. Say 20 percent, your doctor might give you a financial plan to pay that in installments.
I think this is an viable option,certainly worth looking into. Maybe there are also precription hormones that could minimize some of the problem as well.
