gigantism

My husband has been tested for thyroid and other things and the only thing that comes back odd is that he has a high estrogen level for a male.  He gains muscle mass without trying.  His chest (skeletal) has expanded with the muscle mass.  He did have a head injury around the age of 10 that causes some brain swelling.  We are concerned about his growth.  He is of Scandinavian Decent is 5'4", sunken eyes with brow ridge.    No Pituatary level has been off either.  We have no insurance and even if we did we don't even know where to turn.  Does anyone have any Ideas??? we're t;hinking it might be hereditary/genetic  is sister is also barrel chested.  Nothing works to loose the little bit of weight he's gained and when he excercises his muscles mass instantly and now we're out of clothing option.  He weights 315-330 lbs, but looks like he weights between 235 and 250.  Concerned HELP
