Lump behind the nipple

Common Questions and Answers about Lump behind the nipple


Avatar m tn I felt a lump behind my nipple. My other nipple doen't have a lump behind it. I am only 15. Do I have Breast cancer?
Avatar f tn But the knot is only behind the right nipple, not the left. I'm only 23. I'm wondering if I should for sure go to the doctor to have it checked out, or if it could possibly be another side effect of the patch, that will go away once my body get's used to the hormones.
Avatar n tn There is a sore lump behind my right nipple, about the size of it's areola. It has a harder feel to it than that of my left areola. There's more resistance if you squeeze it. It is also considerably more sore around the sides than it is around the top and bottom. I've had this issue for about a month. It only became noticeable to me because of the soreness. Is there something I should be worried about?
Avatar n tn I have soreness in breast behind the nipple area. I haven't found a lump but then I might be missing it since I'm so freaked out. I'm not looking for something but don't know anything about what kinds of things this could be. My aunt has had breast cancer and her aunts had double masectomy. My father's aunt died of breast cancer but no immediate family has had it so far. I'm 37 and I had my first mamogram at 35, I have those fibro things, can't remember the exact name but I have them.

Avatar m tn I looked up my symptoms and discovered that the lumpy nipple could be from gynecomastia. The next day, however, the lump decreased in size. The right half of my areola has the lump, but not the left. That night, I noticed a bulging area around the nipple when I leaned over. I touched the circular, "swollen" area, which felt soft. The last thing I remember before the lump came was spraying the cologne directly on my body and eating the spicy red sausages from the market.
603838 tn?1238538575 I noticed it a couple weeks ago when I rolled over in bed it felt like I rolled over onto something but there was nothing there. I can't feel a defined lump per se... but when I push on the left nipple it is squishy and kind of "boings" if that makes sense. When I do it to the right one it is firm and does not push in like the other. This is not normal for me. My husband can see it too (that the right one doesn't push in as far) and thinks it is weird.
Avatar n tn And it feels like i have something that is swollen inside my breast. It feels like a lump right behind my nipple and the entire left breast seems to feel tight with soreness sensation. I don't have any discharge, i am on a birth control (for about 12 years-never had a problem) and i just finished my period (about a week ago). So it's not hormonal and i didn't do anything abnormal. Should i be worried?
1725062 tn?1309813724 Hey I was just taking a shower when I noticed a lump behind my left nipple. i think there is like a smaller lump behind my right nipple as well. there is no discharge or discoloration or any other symptoms. although sometimes it feels tender.
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 had to be removed behind where the milk ducts were. Then again another MRI showed behind the nipple was another mass which had to be removed (same breast). So take every precaution and talk to your doctor about everything. Do not let anything go by, can't take chances with your Life. Good luck, I hope this helps. I have LCIS (left breast), DCIS (right breast), radio. and now Tamoifen along with alot of pain.
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 hi im 14 and a few months ago i got a firm lump behind my right nipple. it didint hurt.
Avatar n tn I am a 51 year old male whose mother died of breast cancer at age 47. Three weeks ago I noticed that my left nipple was itchy but no scaling or discharge. No change in any detergents and it is just the left nipple. At times, it is a little red. None of the rest of the breast is red of feels warm to the touch. The itching comes and goes and is not so severe that I must scratch it and I have not scratched it. It is now always sensitive. My wife cannot find any lumps.
Avatar n tn Another possibility is mastitis, infection of the milk ducts. sometimes (in the case of my mother) it can leave behind a lump which will be completey harmless, but does produce the symptoms that you described in your question.
Avatar m tn His recent physcial by his family doctor is saying, that is muscle mass building up from working out at the gym on the weight machine. My concern could this small lump be anything else? My god son is 16 years old, and he's in good physical condition. Please someone out there have any suggestions for me. Thanks.
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 m tn I was feeling around directly beneath it and found a hemispherical pea sized lump that is not too prominent and is not in my right nipple. Only my left nipple which, by the way has a fairly normal amount of breast tissue for a male, but more than the right. It is getting fairly obvious to me that it could be cancer and it is not resolving, but progressing. I am going to see my primary care doctor ASAP. What do you make of my syptoms, can cancer be ruled out? Is it likely?
Avatar n tn I can feel it when I lay on my abdomen, but not during a normal breast exam. It is just behind the nipple. It has been there about 5 months but for 2 weeks I have noticed a bloody discharge from that side. No pain. I am big breasted as well.I had called my insurance to ask how they paid for a mamogram. They say I should be seen by a surgeon first and get the order from him. I can do that but how concerned should I be. I am in the health care field but still want to put this off.
Avatar f tn Hi The kind of lump your young son has under his nipple,is certainly NOT breast cancer.It's a condition called Gynecomastia. It will eventually disappear in a few months without any treatment. The reason for this is "hormonal changes" in young males that occur due to puberty.. If you are still worried,please take him to your Family doctor who will be familiar with this condition from experience and can reassure you that there is nothing wrong .
Avatar f tn My left breast nipple is a blue-green colour and has been for quite some time but latley i am getting pain just behind the nipple.I got a benign lump removed about 18 years ago can you give me any advice.

907672 tn?1381029323 He said of all his years he's never seen a lump directly behind the nipple like that. He did say it was round so he was optomistic about that. He did try to asperate it to see if it was a cyst but was unable to remove any fluid. He recommended having it surgically removed due to my mothers history of breast cancer. I go in to see a general surgeon for a consult on Wednesday. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
Avatar n tn If the doctor nor myself can feel a lump but yet the mammogram and ultrasound show a very small lump behind my nipple is that a good sign that it is so small?? Or does size not matter?
Avatar n tn i agree you need to see the doctor on this one, clogged ducks are very painful, i got them a few times, i got a white lump on the tip of the nipple that "popped" while i was in the shower, after that the pain went away, hopefully its something as minor as that, oh just to add, i stopped nursing about 2 months ago and where i had my nipples peirced (i went through a rebelious stage lol) i still get thick white discharge from their, im guessing its old milk,
Avatar n tn it feels rather like a bruise, however, today when i inspected the area i noticed that the area directly underneath the nipple and carrying on past the nipple to the left was an area of firmness, which i think the skin is free to move over but i am not sure. it is not painful intill just the slightest pressure is applied, when the pain resembles that of a bruise. i was wondering if anybody had any ideas what this could be.
Avatar n tn My 15 yr old daughter noticed a lump in her right breast, not behind the nipple but in the upper right area outside the nipple. It feels hard, almost like a bee-bee. In addition, her right nipple appears to be inverted, which has never been inverted until now. She said that she noticed it almost a week ago. Should I be concerned? I have an appointment scheduled for her, but it is not for another week. Concerned if I should push to get her in sooner than that to be evaluated.
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..........
