New development?: If this is a change for you, and the contour of your breast didn't used to be like this, then it is absolutely a cause for concern, and you should go see a breast specialist. Part of the breast self exam is "inspection". We always like for women to look in the mirror standing and bending in different positions to see if there are any changes in their breast contour. ...Read more

You should get your testosterone, estradiol, LH, and FSH levels checked. If these are abnormal it may also be helpful to do a chromosome analysis. ...Read more

I have bumps on my boob near my nipple?

Gynecomastia: The appearance of breast development in a male is usually called gynecomastia, which means a growth and/or prominence of the breast tissue. Most of this growth usually occurs in fat cells and may just be a result of being overweight. It can also be induced by certain medications (tagament, spironolactone, proscar, (finasteride) etc). There is no good medical treatment. If you really want them gone, then surgery. ...Read more

Can there be any bad effect of cancer of inverted boob/nipple in boy?

Can there be any bad effect of cancer of inverted boob/nipple in boy?

No: If you are born with this, it's a non-problem; many nipples aren't quite symmetric and are partly or fully retracted from birth, and there's no increased cancer risk. If a nipple used to look normal and suddenly becomes inverted, it's worrisome and we'd want to know if there's an underlying mass -- in a reasonably lean man this would be by palpating. Boys have near zero breast cancer risk. ...Read more

My boob's r sore and I squeezed the nipple and clear liquids was coming out. Wht should I do?

Breast self exam: A clear nipple discharge is not something to worry about. It is normal gland secretions. Worry about a bloody or milky discharge or new masses or thickening on self exam. Tenderness can be due to several things including trauma and fibrocystic breast change. The fibrocystic breast changes are normal, occur in 90% of women by age 40, and are aggravated (made more pronounced) by caffeine.Keep examining ...Read more

Last couple of days I've had awful back pain &lots of pain in my boobs mostly it's my left boob or nipple sensitive when anythin touches preg test neg?

We assume the two: We assume the symptoms can be related but it is hard to clarify why. The breast pain could suggest hormonal but if it is we need to clarify the cause of the back pain. I can't tell what that cause is and how it could be related hormonally. You physician will look at each of these with that perspective as well as other issues that are discovered during your evaluation. ...Read more
