Lumpy chests for body builders30th November 2009
Doctors in Swansea have reported a significant rise in the number of men coming to see them with chest lumps.
Surgeons have said the lumps are caused by taking body-building supplements, which cause growths known as gynaecomastia. Consultant Breast Surgeon Nader Khonji said the numbers had increased to nearly one patient a day who presented with lumps, from only one a week a few years ago. "[Increased body awareness] is leading them to go down the road of weight training and taking supplement and anabolic steroids, which ironically then cause them to develop the breast tissue," he added.
