What is Gynecomastia?

We knew about a boy in our neighborhood who grew female breasts while on some type of medication for ADD or Aspergers Syndrome. I was reminded of him when I was watching a commercial by ilawsuit which has a 24/7 hotline for boys who have taken Risperdal which may cause them to develop female breasts.

The drug is intended to help treat ADHD, Autism, and Bipolar Disorder, but it appears to have the unintended consequence of infrequently causing Gynecomastia which is the the medical term for boys developing female breasts. Symptoms outside of a D-Cup breast are swollen breast gland tissue and tenderness in one or both breasts.

The TV ad that you see below is of a young boy sitting in his school room desk clutching his head despondent over his Gynecomastia diagnosis. This advertisement was definitely designed to make parents aware of  lawsuit possibilities against Big Pharma firm Johnson & Johnson, maker of the antipsychotic drug Risperdal.
