Recently I opened my e-mail and quickly skimmed the titles in my inbox. One of the titles from the prostate pointers Listserv was “Breast Enlargement.” My initial response was that of anger as I assumed that someone had spammed the list with nonsensical trash. Then it dawned on me, the e-mail was actually about Gynecomastia.

I guess that everything in our life is contingent on ones personal perspective. This is even true for those of us who are dealing with Gynecomastia. Some of us are devastated by it while others are able to ignore it.

Gynecomastiia is just one more of the many indignities that we are subjected to in our attempt to stay alive.
