Treatment of gynecomastia depends on the underlying cause of the condition. In adolescents, the vast majority of cases resolve on their own within 3 years. If a medication is responsible for the condition, changing the dose or switching to another drug may resolve gynecomastia. Weight loss and surgery are other potential treatments for gynecomastia.
