The Best Source on the Internet for Male Breasts, Gynecomastia.org
For years, men have suffered silently with a condition known as gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is the development of male breasts in many men for a variety of reasons. See the June 2015 blog on causes of gynecomastia. It is believed that at least 60% of men develop enlarged breasts at some point in their life and for some it may be permanent.
Merle Yost, a popular psychologist who treats men with gynecomastia, understands their plight as he had man boobs since puberty. He discovered that there was very little information available to men to help them understand their condition. He counseled hundreds of men but wanted to reach out beyond his practice. He came up with the idea to create an informational website that has no boundaries. Merle Yost contacted Miguel Delgado, M.D. the San Francisco Bay Area’s well-known gynecomastia specialist to collaborate with him in the endeavor. Thus in 1996, Gynecomastia.org was launched.
In 2010, Merle Yost decided to sell the website as the maintenance was too time-consuming for him. Dr. Delgado took over the site to preserve its high standards.
There is no cost to become a member of the site, but registration is required. After registering, members are allowed to be interactive on all the forums. The forums are a safe place for men to ask questions of other members without the fear of embarrassment. The support that men find is invaluable; they no longer feel they have to suffer in silence. The members ask and answer questions, share stories, and give recommendations. They also can ask questions of gynecomastia surgeons who frequent the forums. The surgeons who are members of the site do pay a fee that helps offset the costs of maintaining the site.
Gynecomastia.org offers more than the forums, additionally, there are hundreds of before and after pictures of patients that have had male breast reduction surgery, there are videos, and a directory that lists gynecomastia surgeons in most states, and even outside of the country. You will also find news articles and a blog page.
Through the years, Gynecomastia.org has gained immense popularity, proving the site fills a great need. All the major search engines have the site close to the top of their first page.
Men who have seen Dr. Delgado in consultation comment on how comfortable he makes them feel, his compassion about their condition is obvious. Dr. Delgado’s surgical patients say their only regret is that they did not come and see him sooner!
