Not necessarily: Go to see your doc and have further examination. If I am not mistaken, you are talking about a breast lump/breast enlargement correct- or gynecomastia. There are different causes of gynecomastia- from hormonal, medication, other disease-such as liver disease, tumor etc. If your doctor thinks that there is a lump there- a mammogram or sonogram of the breast as well as other blood tests can be done. ...Read more

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?

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
