Sore breast male

Common Questions and Answers about Sore breast male


Avatar m tn Guys can have breast cancer. I'm a male who had a breast removed when I was just 22 years old because of a precancerous condition. But usually in cancer only one breast is involved. It's very unusual to have cancer in both breasts at the same time. It's extremely unlikely that you have cancer.
Avatar m tn Hi, You should acll up your nearest medical care centre and schedule an appointment with a doctor, who could then refer you to a specialist. 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 My husband's nipple is sore & red, looks like a blister or pimple with pus. We open it with a sterlized needle & it bled. Could this be a sign of male breast cancer? He is 55 & on testosterone. Thanks!

Avatar m tn I certainly don't think it has anything to do with cancer although you don't mention your age. If I were you I would make an appointment with either a Breast Specialist or Breast Surgeon for an opinion. It is true that males often have these small lumps and they are hormone related but since you have nipple discharge and pain for this length of time I would see a Specialist. Please don't think that I'm saying this is anything terribly serious but I do think it might require some treatment.
Avatar n tn I have researched many things on different medical sites although there is not a lot of info on male breast lumps that don't point to cancer or gynecomastia. He noticed the lump about 2 months ago but now it is more sore and aggrevating him when he has pressure in that area or bumps or rubs it. When he was in his early 20's he had his nipples pierced but he took the jewelry out several years ago.
Avatar m tn I am a 44 yr old male whose right nipple is sore. I dont do drugs and am not an adolescent. There is no discharge. It has been sore for about a week,there is no swelling. Can anyone tell me what this might be? Will it go away or just get worse.
Avatar n tn Dear Jim34, Breast pain is a common symptom for men being treated with hormone therapy for prostate cancer. For additional information you may want to look up the medication you have been given on the website (
Avatar n tn Dear Joe21, It is unlikely that this mass is due to breast cancer. 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.
Avatar n tn I have a bit of a sore spot on my left pec (male breast). Recently, I have taken Saw Pallmeto, an herb for hairloss amongst other things. I used it for about a month, maybe two. So, I think the soreness may be due to that. That said, I've noticed a bit of enlargement. It doesn't feel like a ball and is not located on or around the nipple or ariela. It's towards the bottom of the muscle towards armpit.
Avatar n tn I am concerned about male breast cancer. What other conditions may be causing this, and what are the symptoms of male breast cancer? I have abused alcohol, smoke, and drink coffee; I am 44. My dad has cancer of the esophagus, my maternal grandmother died of kidney cancer, and my maternal grandfather died of cancer.
Avatar n tn It was painful to the touch around the nipple itself, but not further out towards the breast area. The area was swollen and puffy with some redness around the nipple. It seemed to appear out of the blue. There was no chaffing from clothing or trauma that would have caused this. I am aware that, although rare, men can also get breast cancer, but it sounds like it involves a painless lump and some discharge.
Avatar n tn My friend is 50 yr old male, he suffered a motorcycle accident resulting in a couple of fractured ribs.five to six weeks after the accident he got back on the motorcycle and rode a short while. It was windyhe had a loose fitting sleevless t shirt on that was beating against his chest.

Avatar n tn Hi, Breast cancer in adolescent males is virtually unheard of.However,teenage boys going through puberty commonly develop a tender lump under the nipple of one or both breasts. This condition is called “gynecomastia.”caused by hormone changes during puberty, is very common, affecting many teenage boys. It is normal, temporary, and not a sign of breast cancer.

Avatar n tn Male, 31, lately my chest is feelng tight, cramping a bit, breasts feel sore, sensitive and one nipple remains erect longer than usual. Could this be due to stress? or something worse?
Avatar n tn I am a 46 yr old male with a family history of lung cancer and breast cancer. I have recently noticed that my right nipple has been sore, to the touch on several occasions. The soreness is not in the nipple itself, but appears to be sore behind the nipple. Could this be a sign of breast cancer.
Avatar n tn My sore scalp is definitely related to hormonal changes during PMS. My hair scalp gets sore to the touch in the male pattern balding areas of my head. I do experience slight shedding of hair at this time but it&#x27;s mostly sore. I also normally experience breast tenderness as well as bloating so it may be caused by water retention. I&#x27;m not a doctor but this is what I believe it could be. I first experienced this in my early 20&#x27;s while in college.
Avatar f tn at first we though maybe he pulled a masul . But now it has been 2 years and his left breast is swelling more and is sore I have done a exam on him but can not find a lump or knot I am really worried about this he had a heartattack about 2 years ago as well could that have anything to do with his breast swelling This discussion is related to <a href=''>Male Brest Swelling and sensitivity.</a>.
Avatar m tn recently I have noticed something on my right breast. I'm a male by the way. I've been sick with some bad colds the past few months, but most symptoms are gone. I try to check my testes for lumps and so much and so forth. Since then I have been checking my "breasts", and on my right one, sort of surrounding the middle, is some kind of lump or swollen gland. I don't even know i fthere are any in that area. I went to the dr.
Avatar m tn on your nipples before and after showering.This is a lotion used by breast feeding mothers,but it works wonder on sore and burning nipples. I don't think that your problem has anything to do with breast cancer,since it's happening on both your nipples.However,if things don't get better in a week or two,I would advise you to consult your doctor for a breast exam to see if it could be related to a skin or hormonal problem. Take care...
Avatar m tn I think you are at the right place ... we deal with all sorts of breast issues here both male and female. Since you had both the ultrasound and mammogram (and by the way, now you know what we women have to go thru) and both returned negative results I would be thinking along the lines of a muscle issue or the inflammed tissue. If you continue to be concerned you might consider seeing a Breast Specialist and have him/her review your films and examine you ... a second opinion of sorts. Regards ...
Avatar n tn Yesterday I noticed my right breast was very sore. Upon inspection I noticed an area the size of a half dollar on my skin that is red and very tender. It extends from the areola toward the collarbone. Underneath the skin there is a small lump that is about 1/2 inch across. When I pinch the same small area of the left breast I get only about 1/8 inch of just skin, so obviously something abnormal is going on just under the surface of the right breast.
Avatar n tn I'm 39 years old and about 10 years ago my left nipple got rather sore and I noticed after lightly squeezing the areola, fluid would come out around the hair shafts. It's just the hair around the nipple and not any other chest hairs. This happens on both breasts. I could get a very small amount out of the nipple if I squeezed hard enough but I haven't tried that in about 8 years. The fluid varies in colors: clear, yellowish, greenish, brownish, and purplish.
