Duration and change: Skin issues common, male breast unusual. It used to be exclusively older men, but camp lejeune cluster in marines, family and vets suggest environmental toxin. If the lump has been there and has not changed, i'd worry less. If it is enlarging, red, and painful, see a surgeon. Cancer usually is not painful, but it needs removal and sent to path to analyze.
