I am a 36 year old man and I have just celebrated my 10th Anniversary of kidney transplant on 14 August. I am enjoying my new life with good health. However, my worry is that I noticed that I have huge breasts and huge belly which I never had before. It looks like I am breastfeeding. I eat healthy and I live well with exercises. I have a small body structure and the huge belly and huge breasts make me look strange for a man. I have stopped going to the beach, gym or swimming now. I am so embarrased because I look like I am malnurished. What can I do? I am taking predinsone, azathioprine, prograf for immunesuppressant and other medication for high blood pressure, diabetes, heart, osteoporosis, etc. Please help me. Thank you.

You are on treatment with medications to avoid transplant rejection, and this includes steroids as well, which may be one of the possible causes of your breast enlargement.

You need to consult with your doctor and seek a proper opinion
