User :   Hi, I have a pretty large bump, it seems, behind my right nipple. It only hurts whenever I put pressure on it, but I squeezed a couple of times and a very tiny amount of clear liquid came out. Whenever I was around 12 years old, both of my nipples had a little bit smaller bumps behind them but they went away after a few months; and I also never thought to squeeze them, so I'm not sure if any liquid would have come out at that point. Also, I am 18 years old now. Is this a problem? If so, how serious?

Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   let me read
User :   Yes, absolutely.
Doctor :   the small bumps you are referring are called montegomery tuberles which is normal and is present in all
Doctor :   and it enlarges and decreases during puberty and lactation
User :   So the bump in my right nipple will go away even though I can squeeze it and produce a clear liquid?
Doctor :   if the bump is unusually large and is behind the nipple then it may be due to the blocked duct
User :   And you are aware I am a guy, correct?
Doctor :   sorry i was of the opinion as you were a girl
