I sometime think is this chest pain
or is it cos of that possible lump
am not at all sure
Is the skin over the swelling red and inflammed?
Why do you think that it is chest pain?
Is it deep within the chest or is it below the skin?
no reason..i sometime think may be some of its arteries may become obstructing
below the skin
A few things are coming to my mind.
It looks like a swelling of the mammary glands.
These glands are rudimentary in males.
But can still become infected.
shall I go for some X XXXXXXX
Another thing is normal breast enlargement, which can also happen normally in males.
X-ray is not advised.
but this pain which is though mild is sometime uncomfortable
Such swellings can easily be diagnosed on examination by a surgeon.
ohh...is it serious?
Actually I will suggest that you go to a surgeon and check.
I do not think it is serious.
It is only a mild discomfort.
He may recommend to remove it.
Again it is upto you whether to live with it or go for removal.
ok..is there any test which can diagnose
Yes there is a slight chance that it may become something serious at a later stage.
Among non-invasive tests, USG can be done.
But exact diagnosis can be obtained by biopsy only.
is it for cancer check?
It is just to see what are the cellular components of the swelling.
Treatment can differ according to the test results.
