Why gynecomastia is seen in Infancy?

No, breast enlargement occurs quite often in both male and female babies in the first month or so of life. The reason behind this could be the presence of maternal estrogen, which crosses the placenta prior to birth.

Examples of risk factors for such abnormal growth of male chest tissue would include aging, obesity, alcoholism, liver disease, and estrogen treatment for prostate cancer &Klinefelter’s syndrome.
