Tamoxifen and gynecomastia
It is best to be seen again by your physician to have your hormones evaluated before making a determination on treatment. Surgery is considered when the breast enlargement does not respond to medication or diet and/or exercise. #gynecomastia #Options #Medication
Would undergoing another course of tamoxifen help to eliminate my gynecomastia? Is surgery my only option?
Best to be evaluated by your primary care or endocrinologist to discuss the possibility of another course of medical treatment. Otherwise, seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate lots of experience helping patients achieve the types of outcomes you will be pleased with. Best wishes.
Medical options for gynecomastia
Tamoxifen, anastrozole are two of the medications that can be prescribed to reduce enlargement of male breast tissue. it all has to with estrogen. I would recommend a hormone testing panel to evaluate for any hormonal causes. then consider a surgical evaluation after that.
Please make an in-person consultation with a ABPS board
certified PS to evaluate you and discuss your options.
Hope that helps and best wishes!

You should check with your endocrinologist
Get Tamoxifen answer from your endocrinologist. It will be based on your hormonal status. If you do not have underlying hormonal issues then surgery is your only answer.
