Doctor insights on:
Anatomy What Is Behind A Mans Nipple
Because...: Human babies are mammals, and so babies have nipples. Some grow up to be women with breasts and nipples. Others grow up to be men with nipples (and sometimes a little bit of breast tissue under the nipple). In other words, "that's just the way you're made". It also means men can get breast cancer on rare occasions.
Probably nothing: If the activity is very vigorous and especially if the man's teeth breaks the skin, there is a possibility of infection. If the breast is sore but no skin damage is evident, then the possibility of infection is remote.
See below: That depends on many things. Get an evaluation by a plastic surgeon near you for advise and possible treatment. Good luck from nyc.
Piercing problems.: Nipple piercings can be the gift that keeps giving (pain) because clothing often rubs against it. If it gets snagged and pulled out that will really hurt. Infection is also quite possible.See 1 more doctor answer
It's embryology: All humans start off as essentially female in the womb no matter what your chromosome arrangement is. After several weeks, if you have a Y chromosome, testosterone kicks in and it changes the chemistry in the genitals and the brain. But the nipples are already there...so they stay.
See your MD: You need to see your doctor. You need a exam.
My son 13.Has a hard ball behind his right nipple. Painful if pressed. What should I do? Thank you. Johan
Friction: Friction from clothing or sports equipment is the most likely cause of nipple irritation after active sports. It is easy to test. . . Just put a bandaid over one nipple next time, and see what happens!See 2 more doctor answers
Embryology: As the fertilized egg develops there's a time where the fetus is neither male or female. Then genetics kicks in and the right hormones grow the proper gender. This is why some males during teens get small breast buds - slight female tissue left over. Simplistic testicles in males - ovaries in females. It's fascinating we all turn out reasonably ok thru this complex process! Https://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/Embryology
Maybe: Personal preference. Can be augmented by plastic surgeon.
Please clarify: The cerebellum isn't measured on a time scale, but rather by size. The type of scan is also important to mention--MRI, CT, X-Ray. Please get these important details, and restate your question. Thanks!
Of course men care.: Your best bet is to get it fixed. See a well reputed plastic surgeon.
Behind my nipples I have thick tissue but behind one nipple the thickness is so much more than the other...no pain. Help??
Evaluation needed: Your primary care or OB Gyn should evaluate you. You could have a cyst or a benign tumor, or it could be a normal variant. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
