Gynecomastia is the medical term for male breasts, an embarrassing and sometimes psychologically devastating condition estimated at plaguing about 40 to 60 percent of all men. In 1999 the informational website gynecomastia.org was created. As more and more men are discovering there is treatment available, the popularity of the site has soared. Now 12 years later, the site has been updated with more information and a fresh new look.

Gynecomastia.org continues to be the world’s best information source for men with male breasts. One of the most popular aspects of the site are the forums that men can participate in where they are able to get advice, share stories, ask questions of each other and of surgeons who specialize in male breast reduction surgery. Forum members do need to register, but membership remains at no cost. Maintenance and promotion for the website is covered by the reasonable membership fee of participating surgeons. Past history has shown that only surgeons with a true interest and dedication for gynecomastia become members of the site and have helped thousands of men in their search for solutions.
Membership (for doctors) is open to Board Certified surgeons who specialize in gynecomastia. The benefits to them are the ability to participate in forums whereby they can answer questions posed by hundreds of patients and prospective patients. Many forum members are looking for a surgeon in their area and rely on the gynecomastia.org directory “Find a Surgeon” where all member surgeons are listed. Many questions with answers are found listed on Google, so there is more exposure for the surgeons with possible increased Google ratings. When searching the internet, anything related to gynecomastia will bring up gynecomastia.org not only on the first page but usually in the first or second position.
In addition to the forums and “Find a Surgeon”; the site has medical articles, treatment options, and a gallery of before and after pictures, post surgery workout information and more.
Gynecomastia.org was created in 1999 by Merle Yost LMFT, a dedicated psychologist in the treatment of male breast reduction. After many years of being actively involved, Dr. Miguel A. Delgado, Jr. purchased the web site. His goal is maintaining and expanding Gynecomastia.org as the “World’s best information source on gynecomastia”.
