Thanks for your quick reply. Please find the results of tests that you suggested. Thyroid profile normal, serum TSH 3.87 uIU/mL (ref 0.35 - 5.50) estradiol 64.72 pg/mL, prolactin 12.9 ng/mL (ref 2.1 - 17.7), serum total protein 6.3 g/dL (ref 6.4 - 8.3), serum globulin 1.9 g/dL (ref 3.2 - 4.0), vitamin B12 152 pg/mL (ref 211 - 911) deficient, total testosterone 406 ng/dL (ref 241 - 827), serum triglycerides 168 mg/dL (ref 0 - 150), serum cholesterol 198 mg/dL (ref 0 - 200), serum albumin 4.5 m/dL (ref 3.5 - 5.2) and SGOT, SGPT and AKP are normal.
Please let me know if any further tests are necessary. I have also attached my chest images for your kind reference. Also, it would be great if you could answer my following queries. My testosterone levels are on the lower side of the reference and estradiol is also on the higher side. Is it something to be worried? Do I have gynecomastia? If yes, can it be treated through medications or surgery? To my knowledge, as gynecomastia is because of hormonal problems, will it recur even after surgery?
