Are There Any Treatments to Reverse Gynecomastia Breast Growth from Risperdal in Boys?



Gynecomastia is a serious medical condition that results in growth of breasts among boys, which may be caused by side effects of Risperdal in some cases.

In addition to the physical pain and discomfort, problems from Risperdal gynecomastia can have a severe impact on the boy’s overall quality of life.

Find Out Compensation May Be Available for Risperdal Gynecomastia Treatments.


The development of male breasts associated with gynecomastia is not naturally reversible, so treatments often require surgery. This may involve a mastectomy, liposuction or a combination of the two. However, surgical breast removal following Risperdal use sometimes results in the need to remove glandular breast tissue as well, which can cause additional side effects, such as:

  • Hematoma
  • Infection
  • Asymmetrical Breasts
  • Changes in Sensation
  • Necrosis of the Areola or nipple
  • Scarring
  • Contour Deformities

A family of breast cancer drugs known as aromatase inhibitors, which includes Teslac, have been approved for the treatment of gynecomastia in children and adolescents. Unfortunately, many insurance companies refuse to cover gynecomastia treatment, despite the harmful psychological effects, claiming that it is a cosmetic procedure. This can lead to substantial out-of-pocket expenses to cover Risperdal gynecomastia treatments.

In some cases, financial compensation may be available for former users of Risperdal who require treatments for gynecomastia. As a result of the drug makers failure to provide adequate Risperdal warnings for consumers and the medical community, gynecomastia lawsuits are being pursued by families throughout the United States.
