Good Afternoon Doctor, I am 28, Healthy Male. I started noticing lumps under nipples at 25. They grew for some time but now stopped growing. They are painless, colorless, they are just there.! As I know, these lumps are common during puberty or post puberty, and subside later (witnessed with few of my cousin-brothers). Do they subside or need medics? Please advise. Thanks a ton, Prakash.

Hello, I am a 23 year old male. I have had a lump under both of my nipples for ten years. At first, I thought it was puberty as it was common for 13 year old boys to get those lumps. However, over time the naive, stupid, and scared teenager I was decided to just ignore them. I have accepted that it is male breast cancer and probably pretty bad. My question is what kind of doctor should I go to. Someone more specific than a general physician. Where do I get started?

Hi there, I have noticed that there is a white lump on one of my nipples, which has been there for about 5 months now. It seems as though it is not too white when I initially take off my bra, but after a moment its as though it fills up and becomes much more noticeable. Is there a reason for this? Thanks
