Lump In The Right Breast Nipple In Men?
I am about 15 years old, and there is a lump in my right nipple. It doesn’t hurt, but if it hits it hurts. What is that?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Gynecomastia is an enlargement of breast tissue that occurs in men. This condition is caused by hormonal imbalances that are triggered by various things, such as certain drugs, muscle mass enhancing supplements, alcohol, antibiotics, excess body weight, thyroid hormone disorders and nutritional imbalances.
In your case, gynecomastia usually does not hurt regardless of whether it is touched or touched. So that possibility is actually not included in the top priority. Among other possibilities that can occur in painful nipple bumps are:
Inflammation of breast tissue
However, a direct examination must be carried out to be able to ascertain whether the lump is gynecomastia or not, because a lot of information can be obtained by looking directly, such as its size, shape, color, hard-soft, and boundary. Our advice, check yourself to a general practitioner or may go directly to the surgeon for further examination including a history, physical examination and maybe support if needed. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
Meanwhile, do not touch or scratch the lump, wear loose clothing, keep your body clean thoroughly, and do not apply or consume anything without a doctor's prescription. So, hopefully answering your question.
