hi sir,really your brother,at a very early age faced many problems.i appreciate your care and concern for him.male breast engorgement has very high chances of turning into malignancy.dont worry as it is not at all malignant now.but to prevent any risk of malignancy in future,you can go for excision of left breast.any other clarifications if needed,please let me know.i'm always happy to attend.thank you.take care.bye.
