Watch and wait:
Breast cancer is unlikely. You may watch and wait. If the lump more than doubles in size, ulcerates, bleeds, becomes fixed or painful, see a doctor.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

If a man gets breast cancer, does he first have to have a lump of non-cancerours breast gland material under the nipple (that later turns cancerous?)?
No: All men have breast tissue, yet this tissue may not be palpable as a defined lump under the nipple. Breast cancer begins at a microscopic level and does not require palpable breast tissue in order to form. Some men have a condition where there is pathologic enlargement of their breast tissue--gynecomastia. Although controversial, this does seem to predispose one to breast cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a lump rite at the dark spot on my nipple and I popped it and clear liquid came out? It hurts a lot. Should I be worried about breast cancer?
Not cancer: Cancer of the breast is detected as a firm lesion on palpation or clustered microCa representing DCIS on mammogram. A dark spot on the nipple probably represents a small clotted area from the nipple. The latter is the confluence of milk ducts of the breast terminating as the nipple. Fluid evaporates every day from the nipple and if clotted and the latter then removed, fluid will drain . ...Read more
Probably not: M: most lumps in the breast are actually not cancerous, but i definitely advise that you call this to your doctor's attention so that appropriate testing can be done. You will need at least a sonogram and mammogram to check out the lump areas. If you have many lumps, that is also a good sign that it is likely not cancer. ...Read more
Is it possible to have breast cancer without lumps? Can other things factor into it such as indentation, nipple changes, etc.?
Breasts itching daily. Nipple sometimes worse than rest of breasts but now everywhere. Lumps prev. found & ruled cysts. Breast cancer runs in family.
Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, and physical examination. You may try changing your bra to a natural material. You may also try going without the bra on the weekends to see if that makes a difference. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
