About a week ago I started to form a red tender bump next to my nipple on the areola. I have gotten these before and didn t worry at first. As time went by it never seemed to decrease in size, and is now showing a purple/black spot in the middle of it. If I run my fingers over it, it gives me a burning sensation. I m 22 years old and very worried it could be serious. Any feedback would be appreciated, I plan to go to my local clinic tomorrow, but would like a different opinion here. Thanks!

Hi! I am male 28 years old. This what I will explain happened about 2-3 times last year. Everything starts suddenly with single montgomery gland pain (area around the nipple) . and in few days pain gets stronger, and areola thicker. There is small redness on the skin near areola , about 5mm (not every time), It usually last about 5-10 days and dissapears without any lumps (everything looks normal). Now, before 10 days it stared on the right side, and was passed away, and two days ago it started on the left side, identical symptoms. Aureola is kind of inflamated (but just little darker colour) very painful to toutch and visible swelled a little . Area beneath the nipple is not painful just areola, actually about 50 % of areola, not whole in size. Body temperature is 37 C. What my be cause of this ? I did not have any other health issues related so far..
