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?

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
