    Hi moonburst,

    :welcome:

    The condition you have described is common enough in young boys...

    The programme Embarrassing Illnesses covered this only the other week and it said that most young boys grow out of it.

    Source: Channel 4, Embarrassing Illnesses, Health, Gynaecomastia, Conditions, Man Boobs, Breasts, from channel4.com/bodies

    The best advice I would give is to go to your doctor and talk it over with him as I am sure your doctor wil put your mind at ease.

    Love Mini xxx

    I saw that too Mini.

    Moonburst, as you are only 14 and still developing I wouldn't try to do anything about it yet as you will most likely grow out of them. Are you generally overweight? If not then you will probably lose them in your next growth spurt, if you are then losing weight may help a little but I would go see your doctor if it bothers you x
