Suggest treatment for nipple tenderness

My father, who is almost 84, has begun having tenderness in his left nipple. This morning he woke up and had some blood on his T-Shirt (about the size of a nickel). . . He did have a Groshon Tube on his left side for several months as he had a MRSA and was getting antibiotics through it.

Any form of bleeding from the chest wall is abnormal. Male patients can also develop breast cancer although the incidence is quiet low.
I would highly recommend that he consults with a local doctor urgently so that they can examine the nipple area for any signs of cancer.
