How does telling an "embarrassed kid" that he will have big tits for 12-18 months help?!
my exact thought, telling him that it will last for somewhere around a year and a half doesnt seem so reassuring
I thought it was reassuring in that the kid is being told this isn't permanent as well as that this isn't something serious. It's important to inform him about the prognosis.
"don't worry your gynecomastia isn't permanent, but the mental scars from the bullying you will receive in HS definitely will be :) good luck!"
What is the gynecomastia is from a prolactinoma?
@therealslimshady the gynecomastia is from the sudden surge of testosterone during puberty being converted into estrogen => more breast tissue.
My breasts are not rubbery nodules, thank you very much!
