What are the most common procedures to treat Klinefelter's syndrome?


Answer by  grammybarbj (572)

The treatment for Klinefelter syndrome in men is testosterone treatment. It is used for men who want a more masculine look since the syndrome develops breasts in males. Some males do have breast reconstuction surgery also. They are also treated for psychosocial aspects of the disease with counseling and group therapy sessions.

Men with KS do not have hormone therapy to be more masculine. All people need sex hormones to survive happily. Androgen deficiency is a cause of Osteoporosis and men with KS do not produce sufficient testosterone. About 40% of men with KS develop gynecomastia and have bilateral mastectomy as treatment.  add a comment

Amanda, you don't know what you're talking about. XXY is genetic, of course, but it is not a guarantee that every XXY will develop KS, which is merely the symptoms of the disease Seminiferous Tubule Dysgenesis.  add a comment
