Depending on the severity of the condition, symptoms of Risperdal-induced gynecomastia may manifest in several different ways. However, the most commonly reported symptom of gynecomastia is the abnormal enlargement of breast tissue in boys and young men. Risperdal gynecomastia symptoms typically occur in both breasts, but may be unilateral in rare instances.

What Symptoms can Risperdal-Induced Gynecomastia Cause?
Gynecomastia is a common disease that occurs when breast tissue in males becomes abnormally enlarged. In addition to the primary symptoms of breast swelling and tenderness, a number of other telltale signs may be present. Risperdal gynecomastia symptoms have been reported to include:
- swollen nipples
- soft, palpable breast tissue
- unsymmetrical breast enlargement
- slightly darker or redder skin around the nipples
- nipple discharge
- mood swings
- chronic fatigue
- decreased sex drive
- tender, swollen testicles
- gastrointestinal problems
In rare cases of the disease, cancerous tumors may be present in the breast tissue. When this occurs, symptoms may include a hard lump in the nipples or a bloody discharge from the nipple as the tumor grows. If you are suffering from any of these Risperdal gynecomastia symptoms, you should call your doctor immediately.
Treatment & Prognosis (Outlook)
Men with gynecomastia may be advised to undergo hormonal replacement therapy to help rebalance the body’s hormones. Intravenous testosterone injections and dietary supplements may also help in reducing symptoms. If tumors are found in the patient’s breast tissue, surgery and radiation therapy may be done together to improve the chances of a positive long-term outlook. When Risperdal gynecomastia is diagnosed early and treated appropriately, the vast majority of patients are able to fully recover.
