Gynecomastia -- painful breast lumps
      10/24/02 02:00 PM

I've been HIV+ for about 15 years or so, on meds for 7-8yrs..... and have been doing VERY well.

However, within the last 30 days, I've developed a painful lump (about the size of a pencil eraser) under my right breast nipple. After a thorough radiologic and surgical exam, I've been diagnosed with gynecomastia.

I didn't know anything about gynecomastia.... so I searched the web and found that gynecomastia and HIV/HAART are related.

Have any of you ever experienced this problem? If so what, treatment did you get? Was it successful? Any constructive suggestions are appreciated.
