Men Breast Cancer Nipples Pinched
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Needs evaluation: There are 100 female breast cancers for every 1male breast cancer. It is never normal to see nipple discharge in men. Although there may be benign causes, this calls for a prompt evaluation by a breast specialist such as a general surgeon. This may include blood tests, imaging studies such as mammography or ultrasound, and a careful history. Depending on the findings, a biopsy (tissue sample).See 1 more doctor answer

No: There is no known link between repeated trauma to the breasts and developing breast cancer in the future.
I've been pinch last month by a friend in the nipple at hurts so much until now would I get breast cancer because of that?
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.See 1 more doctor answer
An eczema- like rash: That persists after a few wks should be biopsies but it sounds like chapping.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Breast tissue is susceptible to injury as any tissue in the body is if there is sufficient trauma. This can manifest with similar symptoms to breast cancer on occasion (lumps, pain, bruising, etc). However, pressing on the breast and nipple-sucking (even if traumatic) does not cause breast cancer.See 1 more doctor answer
If my nipples sometimes get crusty or flaky is this a sign or symptom of breast cancer? What should I do?
Probably not.: Most of the time this is dermatologic. There is a type of breast cancer known as paget's disease of the nipple that can present as an excoriated lesion on the nipple or areola. If this type if lesion is present and does not resolve, consider seeing a dermatologist or breast surgeon. Although unlikely, a biopsy would be a very quick, simple procedure.See 1 more doctor answer
Not likely: But it depends on size and appearance of bump. A condition called paget's disease is an abnormal nipple that is really cancer. It is really impossible to say without looking at it. So go see a doctor who can tell you for sure.
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.
~10% of the time: Bloody nipple discharge is usually secondary to a benign tumor or chronic inflammation within the duct, with breast cancer a distant third. Any woman with bloody discharge requires breast evaluation, which will include a diagnostic mammogram+/-ultrasound, physical examination, and nipple aspiration cytology. If the results remain equivocal, a surgical biopsy (terminal duct excision) may be done.See 2 more doctor answers
Possibly: Most patients with breast cancer will have either no symptoms or a lump in the breast. The cancer can cause some architectural distortion of the breast, though, which can cause some changes in the nipple like nipple inversion, retraction, or otherwise alter the appearance of the nipple. This is not the most typical presentation, but it can happen.
Occurs when glandular cells lining the milk ducts and lobules of the human breast begin to grow in an unregulated manner. Often curable if found early and treated effectively with surgery, hormonal therapy, chemotherapy and targeted therapy, or a combination thereof. Early detection before the malignancy becomes large enough to be felt depends on mammography/sonography and MRI imaging of the breast ...Read more
Most breast cancers are carcinomas. This is a type of breast cancer. These cancers start in the cells that line organs and tissues. In fact, breast cancers are often a type of carcinoma called adenocarcinoma, which starts in cells that make glands (glandular tissue). Breast adenocarcinomas start in the ducts (the milk ducts) or ...Read more
