Psychological Impact Of Gynecomastia On Men

http://myost.com/articles/2014/6/23/gynecomastia-and-its-psychological-impact

It is a common perception in our culture that anything that looks like breasts only belongs on a woman. Yet, due to many reasons, boys and men can develop breasts which is known as the condition, gynecomastia. As a result, when a male develops breasts, they may psychologically suffer from the following:

  • Fear of rejection
  • Social isolation
  • Humiliation
  • Low self-esteem
  • Body consciousness
  • Self-loathing
  • Criticism

Although surgery can be a method to assist in the removal of the physical aspect of gynecomastia, emotional scars can still remain which must be addressed for the individual to completely heal. Currently, the skilled attorney's at Meyerkord & Kurth are representing over 50 men with gynecomastia caused by taking the drug, Risperdal. If you or a loved one were affected by gynecomastia as a result of taking Risperdal, Meyerkord & Kurth would like to hear from you.
