Answer

A thorough history should be obtained that addresses the following:

  • Age of onset and duration of the condition

  • Any recent changes in nipple size and any pain or discharge from the nipples

  • History of mumps, testicular trauma, alcohol use, or drug use

  • Family history of gynecomastia

  • History of sexual dysfunction, infertility, or hypogonadism
