Gyno or Pseudogyno?
Thanks for the post. True gynecomastia is due to excess glandular tissue. This typically this feels firm and is located under the areola but can also extend outside the borders of the areola based on how much there is. Pseudogynecomastia typically feels softer than breast tissue because it is fatty tissue excess. The main difference between the two is that excess gland tissue can only be reduced surgically whereas excess fatty tissue may be able to be reduced with diet and exercise.
Both gynecomastia and pseudogynecomastia can be corrected.
I am not sure that you can do this yourself, but why does it matter? If you have fullness in your chest ("breasts") that embarrasses you, it can be corrected.
