I have a breast that’s been developing for almost two years now and I’m so worried that it doesn’t seem to be going away. How long should I wait before it disappears?

gynecomastia-sqIt’s normal for males to have some breast development (either on one or both sides) during puberty. It typically occurs around ages 13-14 years and can last for 6 months to two years. If symptoms persist after two years or past 17 years of age, further evaluation by a health care professional is indicated.
