Answer

Ramadan et al, assessing breast vascularity in 54 male patients, aged 11-27 years, with gynecomastia, concluded that vascular structures ought to be considered a component of gynecomastia. Using ultrasonographic scanning, the authors found a strong correlation between the progression of breast development and that of arterial and venous blood flow. [27]
