Common Questions and Answers about Breast pain under nipple


Avatar n tn I am a 63 year old man and have tenderness and pain under my right nipple when I press against the nipple. Why? This discussion is related to <a href=''>A male with a painful 1 inch swelling under the right nipple</a>.
Avatar n tn I am 28 years old. I just found a lump in my right breast almost right under my nipple. It is about the size of the tip of my index finger. When I touch it it moves around and it is hard to the touch, a bit sensitive when I put pressure on it. I heard that lumpiness in breasts is common close to your monthly period, but I had my period over two weeks ago. Is this something I should worry about? Should I go to a doctor and have it checked out? Or is this just a silly concern?
Avatar n tn I've been to an OB/GYN and have had a mammogram and breast sonogram for a lump under my left nipple. They diagnosed it as a cyst. This was about 2 months ago, and it just went away. (BTW I am 46) A couple days ago my dog stepped on my breast and the cyst came back and it hurts SO badly. Is this normal for the cyst to come back? What can I do about the pain?

Avatar n tn When I touch it, the pain is like a bruise type of pain. Also my left nipple is like slightly bigger then my right one. I'm scared it is breast cancer. I am a male, but males DO get breast cancer right?
Avatar n tn Hi - I noticed you had no replies as yet, so thought I would just write a few words of encouragement. As you have only had the pain in your nipple for a short while, it may not be anything to be concerned about. Breast cancer does not usually present within a few weeks.
Avatar n tn Dear DannyDanni, Pain in the breast/nipple can be due to many things and is not usually associated with breast cancer. Based on what you describe above this may still be residual discomfort from the recent infection. However, over the internet without ability for further assessment it is impossible to say for sure.
Avatar n tn My daughter, who is 10 years old, just came to me this morning complaining of pain when she presses on her right nipple. It has a lump that is hard. (Her left nipple is soft.) She is not in puberty yet and I am very concerned. I have a history of cancer in my family. I plan on calling our doctor tomorrow for an appointment, but I'm just wondering if you can share your thoughts on what could be causing this.

Avatar n tn Just recently I have been experiencing a shooting pain through the nipple of my right breast, it only last for about a second, but that kind of stuff scares me. I know that I have a small chance of getting breast cancer since I am only 20, but what else is there for me to think about when I find a lump in one breast and pain in the other. Do you have any opinions what I should do about this.
Avatar n tn I'm a 41 year old male and 2 months ago I discovered a small lump under my left breast. I had a mammogram and biopsy done and was told it was gynecomastia. About 2 weeks ago the lump has gotten bigger and has become more painful. My family doctor put me on an antibiotic but it doesn't seem to be helping. He suggested if this didn't help he was going to send me to a surgeon. My question, is there anything else it could be?
Avatar m tn I am a 25 year old male who has had a lump under only one of my nipples for quite a while.It fells like it is about 2 cm's and has grown with time.Recently my nipple has had some pain like it is raw and has just been pinched. The other day i was kinda feeling the mass and decided to squeeze it. A couple of little drops of clear sticky fluid cam out. The mass feels like it went down in size after squezzing a little bit but still has a solid base directly below my nipple that feels flat and round.
Avatar n tn these past couple of days my 16yrs old daughter has been complaining about her right breast hurting. also her right nipple sometimes gets smaller than the other but returns to normal after awhile. she said she is also feeling a burning sensation in her nipple. i figured it might be because she had a lot of caffeine these past weeks and she has not had her period yet.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if nipple pain is a cause of concern? It is on the rt breast and is painful to touch. Nipple is red with some swelling. Also, I have some swelling in breast just below nipple and side. Went to my GP and she prescribed antibiotic and did a CBE (no lumps felt). She feels it's just an infection. I have no family hx of BC, I'm 35 years old, my first child was born at 29 years old, and my first period was at 12 years old. The pain feels like I've been pinched.
Avatar n tn Hello, I am a 56yo male, and for several months I have had a "tingling" feeling whenever my left nipple would be brushed against or slightly touched. Similar to a slightly aggravated nerve response. For the past 2-3 months, however, this has changed; I now have substantial pain directly beneath the left nipple. While I cannot detect a true "lump", it does feel more firm or full under the nipple.
Avatar m tn From what you describe it sounds like Mammary Duct Ectasia Symptoms, which can occur in males and females, and may be caused by infection or inflammation of a milk ducts in the breast, near the nipple, causing green,brown or black discharge, nipple pain, breast lumps, swelling,and redness.
1691674 tn?1306060111 They come at random times, normally I would be asleep and be woken up from them, they start of as a dull pain under my breast and then the pain moves to my stomach just about where my belly button is, then my lower back will hurt (sharp pains). I sit up for about three to fours hours in a chair just rocking back and forth, which doesn't help, its just something I do when I don't feel good, sometimes it hurts so bad I feel like I might be having a heart-attack or something.
Avatar f tn Over the past three days, a very painful, red lump has appeared under my left nipple. It hurts so much I can't sleep on my stomach!! I am a runner and wear sports bras and am wondering if bacteria could have entered. I have been using warm compression with no luck. Appt later in the week with doctor but am very worried. I have a history of fibrocystic disease on that breast but this feels different. I have three kids, youngest is 8 so haven't breastfed in a while.
Avatar m tn Hi I have had a sore lump under my left nipple for about a month now. It has grown to the size of a small pea. Does anyone know what this could be or had any experiences of this and would this describe any cancer symptoms.

Avatar f tn Yesterday I noticed a pain in one of my nipples. It's sore, and I had to actually roll over to lay on my other side so it wasn't touching the bed when I slept. There's a lump under it. Not under it visibly, but I felt I guess "behind" the nipple and there was a lump there that wasn't behind my left one (behind as in, inside the breast). It's sore even when I'm not touching anything. I'm only 17, my grandmother's had cancer, my mother's had cancer removed, I'm scared.
Avatar n tn Im a 21 year old male with a lump under my right nipple, its about an inch or so in diameter. it started as a small thing and is now pretty big. not to mention its starting to hurt when touched. i went to a doctor the other day about it and he thought gynacomestia. Cancer is still in my mind though very uncommon, the thought is still there. If it is gynacomestia does it usually hurt? I also have alopecia ariota and im wondering if i have some sort of hormone disorder. Any replies will help.
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing pain in my right nipple. I have never had children, therefore I have never breast fed. There has been no trauma that would cause pain. I also have "thickening" of the tissue (under my nipples to the bottom of breast) in both breast. This is beginning to concern me because the pain is so intense. I am 34 years old.
