Hey guys, I am a 13 year old kid. I am perfectly healthty and athletic. I have two lumps under both nipples. I have been reasearching a lot on this topic, and I have discovered that 90% of lumps are no problem. I bet some of you guys are worried about "Male Breast Cancer", I was also very, very worried until I noticed that tons of guys going though puberty get the same thing. So if.anyone has more advise for me please respond, but for now don't worry too much unless it changes or fluid discharges from your nipple. Thank you and have a good day!

Now I've been reading all of these comments and I'm 14 turning 15 in a couple days and I do recall seeing a pea size red dot under my right nipple before and I think I thought it was a pimple or something so I might of picked at it (this was a couple of months ago) now maybe two days ago I realized that I have 2 large red spots under my nipple, I thought something might of just bit me at the park but it started to get puffy so I did some research and got to this site, when I squeeze my nipple I do feel some sort of liquid my left nipple is fine and no red spots but I do recall a couple months ago feeling some sort of liquid coming out of my nipple. I have been itching the right nipple on the first day and I think I made it worse but I'm going to the doctors tomorrow, and if appereance has anything to do with it I'm kind of chubby 5'9-5'10 ish 155 pounds. Someone please respond, if no one does ill update you all tomorrow, lol.

I have the lump under my left nipple and it's been growing for about a week now. I have had this problem before but usually it stays the same size and goes away in a matter of days. This one hurts more than any before

Well about 3 years ago something was telling me to pinch my left nipple. It was almost like an itch but it didn't itch, it just needed to be pinched as weird as that sounds. When I pinched it I found that I had a pea-sized lump under my nipple, it didn't really hurt when I pinched it. I freaked out and told my mom and she kept saying " Oh Alex, stop dwelling on it, it's not cancer it's probably just a fat clot." or something like that. Since those 3 years I haven't checked to see if its still there, I'm too scared to. I got a physical like last month but I didn't tell the doctor about it because I was scared. I looked up the symptoms for male breast cancer and the lump thing is the only symptom I have except it's not as big as the lumps in the pictures they show. Every now and then I get the urge to pinch my nipple but it's only when I think about it. Instead, I just rub it, as a matter of fact, I've been rubbing while typing this. Any-who, does anyone think I have breast cancer and is male breast cancer just as deadly?
i have the same exact thing and im 14 its not breast cancer ...its not even heard of boys getting breast cancer.. Its just a symptom of growing up

Guys, you should tell your parents but listen to what I'm going to do. So I haven't been in for a psyicle for a while now so i will just say that I should get my physicle done soon becuase it's bean awhile. When I'm there I will mention it to my doctor. So if your embarrassed jut try to make a bit of an excuse to see him, but other wise just tell your parents, it will sound a lot more mature and smart of you to come to them first. Anyways, would you rather worry about it or just know what it is?

Breast cancer in men can cause symptoms like painless lump or swelling, puckering or dimpling of the skin, retraction of the nipple, scaling or visible redness of the skin of the breast or nipple or a discharge from the nipple.

If u find puckering, reddish colour changes it may b cancer!.and if u find some sorts of pain inner in ur whole body consult a doc! Because it indicates that ur lymph nodes are affected

Im a guy 14 thank you so much for this I have the same thing except it hurts a little bit if you press down on it (I noticed this during wrestling practice one day) I have been so scared to say anything because I thought it could by male breast cancer but now I feel a lot better knowing lots of people have it during puberty
