Avatar n tn I am a 30 year old male who has developed some type of mass in my left breast. My initial consultation with our Family Physician was pretty basic, he assumed it was just an inflammation, and requested that I take an over the counter anti-inflammatory. Yet, over a year later, the mass is larger and still painful. The irritation comes and goes and is worse at times. Since that time, my Physician has gone to another practice. I will see a Nurse Pract. this Friday.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn Hi, I a 24 year old male, have pain on my left breast, it's unusually.Can it be anything that I need to take seriouse?
Avatar n tn If my nipple area is pressed in certain spots it really hurts, and there is a subtle, barely noticeable dull pain all the time in my left breast. I went to my university's health clinic this morning, and a physician's assistant told me that the breast was probably infected and gave me a 30 day supply of antibiotics. How it could have become infected, I have no idea; I have no piercings or anything.
Avatar n tn I am a 55 year old male. My left breast has become swollen over the last 5 weeks. It has also become rather painful to the touch. My internist ordered an ultrasound, which described a hypoechoic area of 2.6cm x 1.6cm x 1.2cm. He has just ordered a mamogram for further investigation of the hypoechoic area. Is male breast cancer the only or most likely cause of this ultrasound finding and symptoms? Am quite worried. The area in question was found to be in the retroaerolar region.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 20 year old male with a lump under my left breast. Not very large. It seems like the nipple retracts, but no discharge. It has been there for maybe 6 months, but the last month is when it has really started hurting. Even when sleeping on my left side, the pain can be very irritating. I do workout on a constant basis and have recently lost some weight. I have read up on Gynecomastia, but do not have insurance right now to see a doctor.

Avatar n tn 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.

Avatar f tn Approximately 6 weeks ago I found a lump just below is left nipple about the size a dime with a bumpy texture to it. In general there has been little to no pain associated with this lump. A couple of days ago he asked me to feel the lump again and before I even reached up to feel it, I could see that is was visually noticable where as it had not been before. When I reached to feel it, it has increased its size X4... at least.
Avatar n tn Dear inh: Most male breast cancer presents as a lump in the breast area. Lumps under the arm could be related to many things, including an ingrown hair or infection. However, if this is new, it would not hurt to have it evaluated by a physician.
Avatar m tn several lumps - concentrated in and around the nipple, breast pain, lymph node under my left arm pit got swollen - used antibiotics as prescibed by my doctor - it got healed, very near to my arm pit (left) there are fibre like things happening on the arm (inner side), there is a hair root kind of a thing with a blackhead (only one) just started to develop on my right nipple, nipples are inverted, breast size is quite large as far as male breasts are concerned, my nipple skin mostly has a soft t
Avatar m tn The doctor also assured me that it would just go away which i think was a horrible theory because a year from the date i am still in pain, I have booked another appointment to see my doctor, if anyone has any ideas what this could be besides cancer or if it shows signs of cancer please let me know asap . Thank you for your time to respond please help!
247262 tn?1231830107 Hi, Most breast lumps are not cancerous. Symptoms of male breast cancer include lumps, changes to the nipple or breast skin - redness or scaling, skin dimpling or puckering, or nipple discharge. What you need to do is get a clinical breast examination done by a physician. If he notices something amiss he will suggest a mammogram and USG.

Avatar n tn Infections are very rare in the male breast, and would usually be associated with pain and redness, and cancer is nearly unheard of at his age, unless there's a strong family history: what's most likely is "gynecomastia," which is enlargement of male breast tissue. It occurs frequently at puberty, but can occur at any age. In by far the most cases, it just happens, and has no significance other than if it bothers a person enough to have the tissue removed.
Avatar m tn Hi, Male breast cancer is very rare,especially at your age.It can occur of course but usually in much older men. A women can normally have some type of nipple discharge,but for men, nipple discharge can indicate a problem.Gynecomastia could cause breast enlargement, nipple puffiness and discharge of almost any color and consistency, when they are stimulated.I would advise you to leave your nipples alone and see if the discharge appears spontaneously.
Avatar m tn Hi All, I have had breast pain in my left 'breast'. I am a 22 year old male. My breast hasn't really enlarged noticeably. I have firm lumps where my glands are along with squishy tissue. I have pain most of the time like dull aching, usually it hurts more at different points in the day. It radiates to my armpit. I have 2 small lumps underneath my nipples, the left one is larger and is sometimes painful.
Avatar n tn i have pain in my left breast and its gone bigger then the other breast please tell me what it could be
Avatar n tn Recently I cought a cold, and took TheraFlu and Mucinex; they seemed to help, but just in the last few days I developed a redness and pain in both breasts and a discharge that made a red stain on my white T-shirt on both sides over the weekend and just the left side this morning, while I was in the gym. The Theraflu I took has a marked RED color; that could have been seeping out, but I've never had anything like this before. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn If I am having some minor pain under my left breast (I am a male) does it mean that I have lung cancer. Or could it be something simple like gastro related?
Avatar f tn Hi there I'm a 21 year old male for the past couple weeks I've noticed my left nipple starting to itch but only when rubbed up against something or touched its a very intense itch and it just the nipple itself. Also some weird dull muscle pains off to the side of my breast no where close to my nipple and today I decided to squeeze it and some clear liquid came out of it not much but still made me wanna ask. Any help or opinions on this?
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 n tn I don't see an answer but you're not alone. I woke up last night and my left nipple was in agonizing burning pain, but today it's fine. This has happened before, maybe once or twice a year. I would like to know the cause.
Avatar n tn There's not much in a male breast, especially without redness or swelling, that would need or respond to antibiotics. Which makes me think you ought to consider seeing a breast surgeon. In the absense of a lump, it's very unlikely to be anything serious. However, and expert opinion is always useful when the first doc hasn't been able to get it solved.
Avatar n tn Hello, i am 18 years old and last nite i began feeling pain in my left nipple. 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 and the nipple is more pronounced than usual. i think the skin is free to move over the firm area, but i am not sure. mostly it is not painful intill just the slightest pressure is applied, or the area is stetched.
