I agree with Dr Haws. The ultrasound was looking for abnormal masses which with Gyno you do not have. You would benefit from surgery though
You are correct in that the ultrasound was looking for abnormal breast tissue (solid masses, cysts, etc.) while what you describe as breast tissue in small amounts under your nipples is abnormal in a male, it doesn't mean that the breast tissue itself is abnormal. I would recommend a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who can examine you and assess if this is indeed breast tissue.
I find that men with small amounts of breast tissue like you describe are often candidates for resection under local anesthetic. I hope this helps! Best of luck.
According to official statistics, 36% of adult young men and 57% of older #adult men in the United States have this medical condition in one of the four grades.
About 200,000 to 3 million cases of #gynecomastia are being reported every single year. So if you have #breast #enlargement and you feel you're an exception, please understand that 1 in 3 young adult #men and 1 in 2 older adult men are just like you and have breast enlargement.
There are three types of surgical treatment options available that treat gynecomastia. Your board-certified plastic surgeon will recommend the type best suited for you. The most important decision to be made before performing any surgical procedure is determining whether you are an ideal candidate. Weight, and more specifically body mass index (BMI), need to be considered when deciding.
Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon is highly suggested in order to determine if you are a surgery candidate and what treatments are best for you.
I would have to examine you to give you the best recommendation. Look at
reviews and before and after pictures as well as credentials to select

It looks like you have mild gynecomastia. The gland should be removed but you also might benefit from having an areola reduction either at the same time or as a delayed procedure. Go get a real consult.
I am sorry to hear about your concerns regarding breast size/shape. I would suggest that you do not worry too much about the ultrasound… I think that you are correct and are dealing with a mild case of gynecomastia. Generally speaking, assuming a young man has achieved a long-term stable weight and there are no “causative agents” involved, surgery may be indicated to treat persistent gynecomastia. It is often best treated with partial excision of the prominent glandular tissue as well as liposuction surgery of the peripheral chest area. If the prominence of the chest wall is caused by adipose tissue alone , then liposuction surgery may suffice. When the time is right, seek consultation with well experienced plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience achieving the types of outcomes you would be pleased with.
