  • His doctor should check his hormone levels to make sure it isn't a medical imbalance. Those can be corrected.

  • We did and his hormones are fine, he did some blood tests and they all fine. The doctor doesn't really know but his talking about a surgery that cost 4 thousand and my son is very scare

  • continue to press this issue with his doctor.
    i had the issue of thinking i waas fat when i was younger. i used to wear shirts over my bathing suit in the summer and id wear baggy clothes to hide my "fat" and my boobs. my boobs made me really uncomfortable. i was probably about 11 or 12. it was about the time i hit puberty, everything on my body was uncomfortable to me.
    i finally grew out of it when i grew into my "baby fat"
    talk to your son.....tell him to just tell you how he feels.
    help him, love him. as im sure you already are
    good luck =)
