I have had lumps under each nipple since I was 14.
Hello, I am a 15-year-old male and I have had lumps under each nipple since I was 14. I was told it was just something to do with hormones. Well, I have noticed that they have become about half an inch bigger over this period of time. I was worried it could have been cancer, but I do not have any other symptoms besides the lumps, and they appeared at the same time in each breast which is unlikely if it were cancer I think? I am planning to see the doctor soon, but I would like to get an idea of what I'm getting into. Please let me know what's wrong. Thanks!
@fulla Hello, This is probably due to a physiological change that occurs in adolescents and is known as gynecomastia. It is the growth of glandular tissue in male breasts. It occurs due to hormonal changes during puberty. My recommendation would be to Follow up with your doctor is essential to exclude other causes of inflammation, hormonal abnormalities, and tumors. Thanks!!!
