    If you do not have nodules (lumps behind the nipple) then since its only been 5 months there is a good chance that non surgical intervention may work very well for you at this point treatment with tamoxifen (or if you can get it Roloxifine) is probably your best bet (even if you have lumps Tamox/Rolax may be very helpful0. On the other hand it may just be psuedogynecomastia and a change in diet cardio and an AI may well make a large difference. If you google gynecomastia vs psuedogyecomastia you can find how to feel the breast area to differentiate between the two, the simple version is that if all of the area is soft and mobile its probably just adipose (fat) tissue. If on the other hand you can feel a hard rubbery mass then its probably gyno, if you can feel hard small lumps behind the nipple then the glands are heavily involved.

    PS I am no expert so wait for the real internet doctors and seek a second opinion.

    Are they itchy? Mine always get itchy when the fatten up/get puffy.

    If I understand correctly it takes some time to go from soft tissue to hard tissue, and even then, its not always guaranteed to be permanent.
    I remember after my first cycle was over, 3 months passed by and I had a "stone" of hard tissue under each one of my nipples. It made them
    stick out more, and I was sure I would need surgery.

    I kept putting surgery off and I have no idea how, but those 2 "stones" eventually just went away. I thought it was official gyno, although till
    this day I'm not sure. Either way, all you said is you're bulking. We need to know what you're taking, dosages help, and if you're on any
    ancillaries right now (letro, etc) that will help too.
    If you're not on ancillaries, I'd suggest getting some letro into your blood asap.

    Sounds to me like just fat.

    If you had gyno forming, you would know, its very sensitive, can be achy, hurt, and most likely you will feel something of a knot/lump inside there.

    I have your same problem, fat tends to accumulate around my nipple area, dieting solves the problem.

    Try dieting and cutting very hard, I had fat and water behind my nipples and after cutting down multiple times I was able to get rid of it. Really going to have to diet down though.

    Doesn't look like anything diet wont fix. Get your BF down to 12% or less and they should be gone. I know, it's hard to loose fat on the chest. it seems it's harder to shed than the love handles. Dont over react about feeling small lumps/glands unless you where use to checking before you ever did a cycle because we all have glands to some extent and if you look/feel enough you will find them.

    In all honesty you should not be doing a cycle though because your BF is way to high and yes it puts you at higher risk of gyno and whats the use of gaining water weight? You obviously are not doing a clean bulk and dont kid yourself saying you are. A clean bulk doesnt start when you are 18%+ body fat, it starts at 12% or less. You're not doing yourself any favors at this point.

    you def need to adjust your diet and you should be cutting first in your case ,get down to 14% then build up. you are in no shape to take steroids . and there is many more like you on here . you will cut that fat quick . and by the way your bf% is low 20s. im not picking on you i was there last summer it can be done ...

    Ya def work on that diet, bump up the cardio to at least five times per week or thirty minutes after each workout at the gym, keep you rests between sets to thirty to forty five secs so you can keep that heart rate up, possibly throw in a stimulant of sometype I prefer eca and with in two months man if your a real consistent and strict on your diet you could really do some damage. I think you would end up looking great. Good luck.

    I have found that dirty bulks are just the lazy way to bulk and in the end you end up doing more harm then good because in the process of cutting most the time you end up sacrificing some muscle. Just let it be a lesson. Sounds like you need some help on your diet. Hit up the diet section some real pros in there that will help you out. gbrice and fireguy come to mind.

    I am very thin, and since puberty I have had the small hard rubbery tissue behind my nipples, so I think it's weird you gys mentioned if its hard then its gyno...
    I get really paranoid because since i am very thin and only about 5-7 % body fat, it would look very weird if i developed gyno.. my chest is always the muscle to show developement the first and gets big fast, so I always worry about it, when on cycle.

    I just ordered some letro and am gonna take it even tho i am unsure if I have any signs of gyno at all.,i think ill post a pic to see what you gusy think..
