Oh man! Man boobs

If you're a man and have man boobs, then you know it's time to hit the gym.
However, if you're a boy in the UK, you can just get them surgically removed.
Sounding like an urban legend, this is a true story according to the Daily Mirror. Obesity in boys and teens are leading to increasing and abnormal hormonal changes.
The medical term for man boobs is gynecomastia. The article states that normally, overweight boys can just lose weight to reduce their chests, but that gynecomastia is "caused by a hormone imbalance which can be triggered by obesity. It causes firm, tender female breast tissue to grow under the nipples. "
