I think I could have a hormone imbalance watch

    I am a 19 year old male and I think theres something up with me. I have been going to the gym since the beginning of the year and started to lose a bit of weight and stuff, but I have pretty minging man boobs. I have pufty nipples that puff out and make my boobs look like actual boobs, especially when I am warm. Its not so bad at natural temperature or when I am cold but if I am too hot, like for instance in the steam room my nipples puff out and make my moobs a bit larger. I am slightly overweight but I don't seem to be losing any weight from my chest. I'm really muscular underneath though, I just don't seem to be able to shift this layer of fat.

    I was wondering if it may have anything to do with high oestrogen levels and low testosterone? I still can't grow a full beard and my body hair in general hasn't really changed for a couple of years.

    If this is the case, what do I do? I consulted a doctor early on in puberty about my nipples when they first came about and he said they would go away as I develop through puberty. Shouldn't I be at the end of puberty by now? Everything else is in working order. I'm 6"4, wide shoulders, normal genitals, broken voice... its just the moob and hair situation that is a bit alarming.

    Hmm if you went to see your GP a few years ago then it might be worth going back to see them now, they might have a different answer.
