I'm a medical student nd im worried abt the (cyst/lump) on my both areolas I have them since puberty bt I've always thought they're nothing serious?

Ah, the dangers of: Learning about zebras as well as horses! If the lumps have remained the same size for many years, they are probably benign. They may be a bit of breast tissue. I think you need have your pcp examine them ; tell you if a bx. Is needed. The take-home lesson is that sometimes people just need to know they ; their loved ones are okay, because even a little anxiety can impact daily functioning. Read more

Bodybuilder, never used steroids, having puffy nipples for so long. When pressed inwards Feels there is hollowness under areola, no pain, no lumps.

Bodybuilder, never used steroids, having puffy nipples for so long. When pressed inwards Feels there is hollowness under areola, no pain, no lumps.

Normal variant: Hard to be certain what the problem is without proper examination but on the onset it doesn't sound life- threatening. I'm a bodybuilder myself and nipples can be puffy for any number of reasons. When did this problem begin? How are your father's nipples? Do you have family history of breast disease? Is there any pain about the breasts? Read more
