Hello
I share your concern

you are right inflammation generally present as red swollen tender and may be associated with fever

This could be a fibroadenoma or paget's disease and very rarely a breast cancer
as such all these conditions are very rare in males so it needs to be evaluated in details

in my opinion you should consult a general surgeon for examination and investigations

Hope this helps him
best wishes
