Avatar n tn My 14 YO son has a pea sized lump behind his right nipple (a little above and to the inside). Is this a normal hormonal change or should he have a mammogram? It's painless and doesn't move.
Avatar n tn He has discovered a small lump which seems to feel like a mass of soft tissue right behind the left nipple. He has some tenderness there however no pain. He has been touching it alot wondering what it is, to the point there is a small amount of secretion relieved when he did this.I asked if the secretion was of any smell, thinking it was possibly a cyst, and he said he didnt think so.
Avatar f tn Hi, A male breast cancer,particularly in males over 60, typically presents as a painless mass behind the areola but malignancy or cancer in young male breasts is relatively rare.This could be a cysts or an abscess caused by infection and also Gynecomastia due to other causes like drugs or hormonal imbalance. It’s a good thing that your boyfriend will see his Doctor soon ...It’s very important to have this lump checked out to make sure it’s nothing serious. Best wishes to both of you..
Avatar n tn I was taking a shower, and when i was cleaning my chest with the spunge, as i went over the nipple, i felt a pain from below it, so i checked it out abit. It appears to be a lump right behind my nipple, which hurts if i try and grab it, it apears to have un-even edges, as a stone (dont quite know how to describe it) and when i put even abit pressure it hurts. Should i be worried? What could this be? Thank you for your time.
Avatar m tn I am a 50 year old male, I feel a hard lump behind my right nipple extending upwards above the nipple a little bit. Can men get breast cancer? If so, what's the difference from a cist compared to a cancerous lump? My lump doesn't hurt, but has a slight itch from time to time. I've had this lump for a little over 6 months now, it was smaller when I first found it. Could you please respond ? Thx for reading this.
Avatar n tn Hello Everyone, Im a 21 year old male that has a lump in my right breast directly behind the nipple. I is about the same size as my nipple and seems to have stopped increasing in size for the last two weeks. It is somewhat tender if I try to feel it. It seems fairly firm but not smooth at all. The surface seems to be quite bumpy and rough! I would normally immediately get it checked out but I am in Germany for the next 8 weeks.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 26 year old male with a breast lump in my left breast. I have had this condition since I was about 21 and it has not gotten any larger(about the size of a quater)It is round but is not symetrical with my nipple it sets a little to the left of the middle. It is not smooth it has a firm lumpy feel to it and I can move it under the skin. The only other thing I notice is nipple swelling and sometimes some underarm pain that feels like a pulling muscle or something.
Avatar m tn So I am a 23 year old male. I noticed a lump behind my nipple about 3 weeks ago. It doesn't hurt at all. It is probably about 1.5 inches across. I went to the doctor today and he said I should get it checked out. I am getting a diagnostic mammogram and an ultrasound on Monday. (didn't even know guys could get mammograms) I have done a little research on male breast cancer. I am a bit worried because they say the lack of pain is one of the first symptoms.
Avatar n tn I don't know if that means the pain in my chest area is much worse or if the pain killers just don't work as well for some types of pain. I went to the doctor and an standard xray showed a 2cm mass behind and just above the nipple. The doctor said she couldn't feel any lumps but the xray tech told me I needed to see another doctor because they saw a large mass.
Avatar f tn I'm 15 male and for the last three months or more i have had a tender reasonably sized lump in my right nipple. It looks no different to my left nipple but something is definitely wrong. After reading a few things, i thought it may be something to do with hormones, It may not be related but i am very far behind puberty compared to people around me, eg leg hair, height, so on..........
Avatar f tn It also feels like there is a lump behind it. It is also pointier than my left one. My left one doesnt hurt at all. I am an 18 year old male. What could it be? Some guy on yahoo answers said it could be nipple cancer? It concerned me. Should i let this slide & see if the pain goes away by itself? Help please. Keep it mind if i dont touch it no pain. But it is pointier than my left. Its like a sting feeling.
6678800 tn?1383680914 Typically this disease would present as a painless mass behind the areola ( dark area around the nipple ) It's hard to even guess what this lump could be,since it is located at the base of your husband's breast.Try not to panic,because there are multiple causes of male breast lumps,most of which are benign. I am glad that your husband will soon be seeing his doctor who will get the necessary investigations.Hopefully things will turn out just fine for him. Best wishes to both of you ...
Avatar n tn My 12 year old son showed me a solid nodule behind his nipple. It is hard to the touch and is under his right nipple. He said it has been there about 2 weeks. It hurts to "flex" his muscles. Is this normal for a boy or should I see his pediatrician asap? Thank you.

Avatar n tn Dear Doctor, First of all I want to apologize for my English because it isn't very good. I am 16 years old boy. Eight months ago I discovered a painfull gland (lump, ball) in my right breast. I also noticed that my right nipple (teat, the brown thing of the breast) is a little bigger than the left one. It does not produce blood or other liquids. I've noticed that it has disappeared week ago but I am not sure. I am overweight. I am 167 cm and I weight 82 kg. Please help me.
Avatar f tn Then about 4 years ago she developed a small round lump near the affected nipple. Needle-biopsies showed it to be benign, so we opted to leave it. She was then spayed 2 years ago. However, the little lump grew, and when it was removed (February this year) the lab. biopsy showed that it had become partly cancerous. As a result, her lower mammary tissue was completely removed March 27th. Now she recovered well and is still very well. I am very glad.
Avatar m tn 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. Its just grown very very very slowly over the years its like I have an A or a B cup.

Avatar n tn A heterogeneous retroaerolar mass simply means that there is an unknown type of lump located behind the nipple of the breast that cannot be readily identified because it looks like the surrounding tissue. The lump in his breast may be a neoplasm, which is a tumor. These tumors can be benign, cancerous, or just a piece of tissue that serves no purpose (histoid). Hematoma is a tumor filled with blood, generally caused by a truama.
Avatar n tn WOW! Glad to know I'm not the only one. 27 year old male. I noticed a lump on my rib on the rightside. A little worried. Of course a million different causes run through your mind. It doesn't hurt and seems stationary on the rib. I have a doctors appt. on Wednesday to check it out. I will write back when I find out what the problem is, so some of us can get some kind of answer...
