The worst cases of gynecomastia cannot be corrected without surgery. Sometimes, a small amount of abnormal breast growth that occurs during puberty may resolve on its own. However, if the underlying cause (e.g., Risperdal) is removed, and the gynecomastia does not regress on its own within two years, surgery is likely to be necessary.
Gynecomastia can be a serious, disfiguring condition. Especially in young men, it can lead to anxiety, ostracism and bullying. It can have long term effects on mental health and earning capacity.
If your life or the life of someone you love has been adversely affected by gynecomastia, you may have a claim for money damages. Contact the Dysart Law Firm, P.C. today for a free case evaluation.
