Question:

If I do exercise for development of biceps and triceps..like biceps curl.. will my gynecomastia worsen?

Answer:

There are two types of Gynaecomastia one is formed due to growth of the glandular tissue caused by a hormonal imbalance and the other known as pseudo-gynaecomastia is caused by excess fat in the area only. Exercise will increase the muscle mass in this area but will not directly effect or worsen the Gynaecomastia.
