There are a few factors you can control that may reduce the risk of gynecomastia:

  • Don't use illegal drugs. Examples include steroids and androgens, amphetamines, heroin, and marijuana.
  • Avoid alcohol. Don't drink alcohol, or drink in moderation.
  • Review your medications. If you're taking medication known to cause gynecomastia, ask your doctor if there are other choices.
