Please make an issue of this lump and request an appointment with a Breast Specialist. This type of finding can be serious in men in your age group .... not that it is, but it definitely deserves some intensive investigation until proven otherwise. Regards ....
I am a 62 year old male with a slightly painful small hard lump on my left breast, very close to the nipple. No other symptoms exist. Is this just a benign cyst? What should I do?
Hi, It's really very hard to tell you over the internet what this lump could be...but since you have this lump for so long and it didn't grow or change in appearance,I doubt that it could be breast cancer. Breast cancer is quite rare in men,but it can happen especially when they get older. The best advice I could give you is to have this lump checked out by your doctor.Maybe running some tests will be recommended to find out the true nature of this lump.
My 5 year old male Doberman called Fiel, ( which means faithful / loyal in Spanish) has a hard swelling around his first nipple on his right side. It's about 3 inches round and protrudes out at the centre about 1/4 inch. It looks like half a large boiled egg. At first I thought at first it was a muscle strain but now it feels like its attached and is definitely noticeable. I will be taking him to my vet on Monday but I've got a terrible feeling this is something bad.
A few months ago, I noticed a small hard lump under my left nipple, it is mildly painful to touch and over the last few months since I First noticed it, it has grown, now I can feel it under my whole left nipple, which is a little swollen and bulgy, now I feel another lump just like that one forming under my right nipple, I am 14 years old and I am a guy please help!
It is correct to think that male breast cancer appears increasingly with age. The median age for breast cancer in men in 67. There is most probably no cause for worry in your case, since the small lump and pain that you have can be due to normal growth and development of your body at this age. As you would know there are changes taking place in your body at this time and some of the changes do happen in the breast tissue which is also present in a less developed form in males.
I am a 41 yr old male and I had my left breast removed in Feb '06 due to cancer (DCIS). Now in Oct '07 I found a new lump in the same breast. Went to my Oncologist and he felt it also, pressed hard on it and there was pain. Had an ultrasound today, will get results in two days. I watched as the radiologist did this. She kept looking at solid black circles (she said they were ducts?) then found one with a light gray circle inside the black one. She measured it and took frames of it.
I don't think it's breast cancer related but anything new or different found in the breast (male or female) should always be ck.d out by a Dr. Regards ....
I have a hard, pea sized lump under the skin in my pubic area (less than 1/2 inch above clitoris and slightly to the left). It's not visible at all and can only be felt by touch - I first noticed it about 1 1/2 months ago. Went to my obgyn and she quickly told me it seems like an ingrown hair and I should put warm compresses on it. She even said it looked like a white head was coming up. Well, the compresses didn't work.
Breast cancer in men is uncommon, but possible. It usually presents as a hard lump in the breast. If the lump has not changed in 4 years, it is unlikely to be cancer but it should be evaluated by your doctor if it is causing you discomfort or concern.
Last year, about 1/2 way through her chemotherapy, she felt a hard solid lump on her rib, just below her right breast. It didn't seem to hurt her unless she pressed or tried to squeeze it. But, it was quite visible and she was clearly concerned by the timing of it's appearance (during chemotherapy) and growth (it grew to about the size of a quarter in circumference). Her oncologist examined this "nodule" (that's what he called it).
The findings were a small hard lump. we were referred to a surgeon and he has scheduled surgurey to remove it in 2 weeks. Since my visit I have been online educating myself on this subject. Should we hold off on removing it for a few months to see if it goes away (as some have that I read about) or should we be on the safe side and have it removed immediately. My son is terrified to be operated on and in all operations regardless of seriousness there can be risks.
feeling is not a typical presentation for breast cancer (male or female). A hard lump generally refers to a lump that feels hard (like a marble) to touch. A rubbery feel would indicate that there is some "squishyness" to the lump. A fixed lump generally feels attached to other structures and does not move. A moveable lump moves around under the fingers. Of course, none of the characteristics of feeling a lump are diagnostic, they only further characterize the lump.
I do box semi-professionally and obviously use my chest muscles quite a lot for punching, pressups, weights, etc. However this lump feels quite hard, I know the picture is hard to see because of the flash, but the lump is about 4cm long and 1cm wide, kind of like a quarter of a pencil size. It's not 'hard' but it is also not soft, it is kind of like a solid rubber feeling.
There is a milky discharge from both nipples (when squeezed hard). A month ago it happend mostly in the left and a little in the right. Now it happends more in the right (probabaly because I have been feeling the lump alot and leaving the left nipple alone). It seems the more squeezing I do, the more easily the fluid comes out. If I was to try my right nipple now, a little would come out. If I tried again, alot more would come out.
I'm a lactating male do to low t and fenugreek.
Its only on my right breast and it has no pain at all. You can clearly feel a flat/roundish lump about 1 inch thick and 3 inches wide, its not in my nipple just like a ball of fat or something behind the skin. I can pinch through the back of it and block it off, its not attached to me, its just a lump. Don't really know how else to explain it. I know 100% its not cancer because I have had this for over 10 years, I'm sure I would be dead.
The present and future role of bisphosphonates in the management of patients with breast cancer. Breast Cancer Res 2002, 4:24-29 __________________________________________________________________________________________ Cochrane Review Background Bone is the most common site of metastatic disease associated with breast cancer (BC). Bisphosphonates inhibit osteoclast-mediated bone resorption.
I also have a lump in my hard palate which was never there before. Mine is slightly painful to touch and since I had chemo and radiation treatment I am not ruling out its just normal. I will continue to do my research on the net for a few more days and if I still am concerned will discuss with oncologist. I certainly hope it is nothing. Since my own diagnosis I will make 4 years in June. 75% off women don't make 5 years.
Breast cancer in men is uncommon, particularly in young men. Usually, male breast cancer presents as a hard lump in the breast. If you are having pain in your chest, there are many possible explanations. Likewise, there are many possible explanations for swollen lymph nodes. Without examination, we cannot guess at what this could be. Our advice is to discuss this with your physician, explaining your concerns. If you remain concerned, consider a second opinion.
In my opinion mammograms are rarely useful in men. What you describe doesn't sound like a true lump. In male breast cancer, there is a hard lump near the nipple, sometimes with distortion of the nipple or nearby skin. If there is uniform softness of your breast areas, it's extremely unlikely to be cancer. Pea-sized lymph nodes are not usually significant either. However, peace of mind is important; if you are worried about the plan, you should let your doctors know.
I also found a hard knot at the base of my husbands, RT. breast. It's oval in shape w/o pain upon palpation. It's 4cmx2cm. It doesn't radiate upon palpation. I'm worried, scheduled appointment for next week. Any thoughts?
I have made an appt with my doctor tomorrow, but was hoping I could get some insight here. I am a 34 year-old white male in average shape. Help!!
Dear Minna29, Male breast cancer is rare, but one out of every 150 cases of breast cancer involves a man, usually in men over 60 years old. Although a painless breast lump is the most common sign, most breast lumps in men are benign (non-cancerous) and are related to some other cause. If you and your husband are concerned, having a second opinion is always your option.
