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.
HI 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.
