Ann Scritsmier , NASM Elite Trainer, Fitness, answeredSteroids have been attributed to the condition gynecomastia which can cause breast pain in males. Breast pain can also be associated with liver damage from alcoholism, injuries, medication use, shingles or mastitis.

As a Sharecare Transformer, how do you involve your family in exercise?
Jen McElroy - Sharecare Transformer, answered
My husband and I have two dogs and we both know the benefits of walking the dogs so I usually suggest a walk with both dogs on the weekend. I recently got a bike so we're planning on doing some biking trips - either a few hours in the area or maybe a weekend away so we can bike other places too!
What are some tips for having a good restaurant experience?
Stefanie Sacks, MS, Nutrition & Dietetics, answeredA good restaurant experience starts with getting educated about your dining choice. Going out to eat is a treat for many (including me) so I take going out seriously and only want to dine at places that have clean and thoughtful food. I never shy away from asking a lot of questions about menu items and being specific about how I want my food prepared. Communication is key. Most restaurants have websites (with their menus listed) so surely scour. And read customer reviews.
