Officials at the Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries, said the man would visit the church again soon, this time with a testimony, according to reports.

The rare condition of a man developing breasts is medically known as gynaecomastia, otherwise known as ‘man boobs’.
According to a plastic surgeon, Roger Mixter, breasts that develop on a man can be made up of mammary gland tissue, fat or, most commonly, a combination of both.
It is usually caused by an imbalance in the two sex hormones, oestrogen and testosterone. He said all men and women have both oestrogen and testosterone naturally in different amounts in their bodies.
He stated: “Hormonal imbalances can be caused by conditions ranging from pituitary problems to liver disease. Any man who develops gynaecomastia or man boobs must be evaluated to determine if there is an underlying cause, and have that cause treated if possible. Frequently, correcting the underlying problem can reverse the breast development.”
There has been several other cases of men who had similar feminine development after taking the ARVs.
