Gyno or excess fat

How can you tell the difference between gyno and just excess fat?

Reason I ask is around the lower part of my chest, specifically the nipple area, its very soft and spongy and when I have a good feel I can feel what seems to be glands or tendon type lumps on both nipples, but not puffy or itchy. I have done a few courses in the past, mainly consisting of tbol and/or winny, a couple of dbol over the last 10 years.

I do cardio most mornings and eat very clean and well, but I've not see much of a change over the last month or so, the change I was hoping for was for my entire chest to harden, but this isn't happening in the lower region. You can't actually see anything when looking in the mirror etc

What's the best way of verifying if this is anything other than excess bodyfat?

    If its excess fat there will be no hard tissue under the nipple

    If its tissue based gyno there will be tissue and may itch/ache

    You can feel it with your index and middle finger placed over the area and if there is tissue you can feel it, if its fat itll just be soft and squidgy and you just need to cut

    If im doubt pay your GP a visit and get it checked out just in case

    soft and squidgy


    This is exactly what it is, I have to press hard to feel any hard tissue and even then there's hardly any - it's not nor has it ever been sore or itchy as such

    Think I'll reduce cals again and monitor

    Cheers all

    Sounds exactly the same as how I would describe my chest, but Im pretty chubby. Ive been worried about it for years. I dropped my weight from a fat 13stone down to a less fat 11stone and my chest did look and feel alot better.

    I think the only way you will know for sure is to cut your bodyfat down and see if it goes.
