What are some symptoms of Klinefelter syndrome?
It is advisable to seek prompt medical attention when the symptoms of Klinefelter syndrome appear to prevent them from worsening, notes Mayo Clinic. To diagnose the condition, a doctor first performs a physical exam on the patient’s body before ordering further diagnostic tests such as chromosome analysis and hormone testing. While chromosome analysis helps to determine the chromosome number and shape, hormone testing determines hormonal levels. Treatment options that exist as of 2015 focus on reducing the effects of the condition but not reversing the condition itself completely, and they include speech and physical therapies, testosterone replacement therapy, and surgery to remove the breast tissue.
