A 33-year-old member asked:
How can you tell a normal lump under a guy's nipple vs. a symptom of male breast cancer?

No normal lump: Any lump under the nipple is abnormal and should be examined by a doctor and likely biopsied to exclude cancer.

See your doctor: You will need an exam by a health professional and an ultrasound to know for sure.
