A More Prominent Size Of The Nipple Without Enlargement Of The Breast Tissue?
Hello. I am 13. My chest is not big and like most boys but the nipples on my chest stick out. Is it due to puberty or Gynecomastia? Tks.
Gynecomastia is an enlarged breast gland in men due to an imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone. Gynecomastia occurs when the male hormone estrogen increases from normal levels or the hormone testosterone decreases.
The symptoms that accompany this condition include:
an enlarged breast size, on both or one side of the breast feels supple and tight. The breast feels more sensitive to touch. Meanwhile, from your explanation, what you experience now is a more prominent nipple size without an enlarged breast tissue. This condition is known as nipple protrusion or nipple prominent. If the condition you are experiencing continues along with an enlargement of the size of the breast tissue, it can be included in the condition gynecomastia. But to be more sure, further examination by an endocrine doctor or surgeon is required.
so, hopefully useful
