I suffer with gynecomastia and causes me a lot of depression and anxiety as it has only happened on one side of my chest. I am of athletic build and it makes me worry a lot. When I felt pain I went to a doctor, at age 18 complaining about a pain in a spot the size of a 5 pence piece. They told me it was gynecomastia and will just go away over the years. It didn't go and got big to where it is now noticeable and I don't take my top off any more. I'm now 28 going on 29 and the lump inside is bigger and nothing has been done about it.

Four weeks ago, I was diagnosed with very low salt and an infection. I was treated at the hospital with an IV saline solution and IV antibiotics for five days, then discharged home on the seventh day. I developed a severe cold in the hospital and the symptoms are still lingering. Blood tests taken prior to a visit to my GP came back normal. Six days ago, I developed laryngitis, so my GP put me on Distaclor. I am still feeling no energy, my throat remains sore, and I have a cough. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
