What Is The Condition When An Adult Male Has Prominent Nipples On His Breasts
Nipple Prominence: This may simply be prominent nipples. The treatment is surgical, involving excision of the prominent tissue of the nipples. If there is excessive breast tissue and/or skin as well, liposuction with or without surgical removal of the extra skin may be more appropriate. A consultation with a plastic surgeon may be in order to determine the best diagnosis and treatment plan.
Can Thoracic Outlet Syndrome cause nipple pain and breast pain in adult males? I'm a 56yo male, with TOS, and nipple pain x3-4 months.
Probably not: That does not sound like symptoms of TOS. Men can get breast cancer just like women. I would initially start out with your primary care physician and then even see a breast surgeon specialist. Don't let being a man deter you from sitting in a waiting room full of women in order to get checked out.
Maybe: You could try using a breast pump so that you get used to the sensation. That said, keep in mind that the actual suckling of the baby is mechanically much more than the neg pressure generated from the suction pump. Also, that the act of nursing your baby is itself the best way to get your nipples to adapt. Congrats on your baby and your decision to breast feed. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Gynecomastia?: Probably this is nothing serious. Gynecomastia is female type breast development in males. Mild gynecomastia, including firm tenderness under the nipple, is a fairly common symptom of puberty in young men. This might be most likely if your own puberty was on the late side. But if this persists more than a few weeks, best to see a doctor, preferably an endocrinologist.
Male Chest Size: No, stimulation of nipples won't increase chest size in men. It may cause local irritation.

Hello,: Hello, a breast mass in a male needs to be evaluated by a doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
I am awaiting my appt with breast dr. I am 49 yo male with hard, sore nipple. No discharge. Don't feel lump. What could be causes?
Can't tell need exam: For any breast lump physician has to (must) see to give an opinion, 1% breast cancers are in men, more often diagnosis is delayed, majority of time they are benign, call your doctor again for early appointment.
Basic template: It may surprise you but without the influence of the male derived hormone signals in fetal development a male would develop all female parts. There are also females that have altered "male like" genital formation when the hormonal messages get mixed up. The basic answer is we all start out with the same template of tissues, and the signals determine where we go from there.
Cysts, fibroadenoma: Cysts and fibroadenomas are two non-cancerous breast masses that can be found in men. Although male breast cancers only account for 1% of all breast cancers, a suspicious mass should always be evaluated. Your lump should be evaluated with a combination of physical exam, mammography and ultrasound as necessary. Please follow up with your PCP.

Playing with nipples: The amount of time you take to stimulate your breasts daily is abnormal. Suggest you obtain psychological counseling to help you to be more comfortable in your life.

First: First of all, please be sure that your mammograms are up to date. I would recommend that you see your regular doctor, gynecologist or a breast specialist to have a complete evaluation. Of course if that is negative, then be sure that it is not your bra that may have something irritating in it, or that you haven't used new lotions/creams or laundry detergents. But I do advise that you have a complete breast evaluation by a physician.
I was wondering if ovulation can cause more prominent veins in your nipples and on the breasts. I am getting them all over my breasts and its unusual?
No: The venous system is sensitive to hormonal chnages such as seen during your cycle. These should not be a cause for concern. Although there is a rare syndrome called 'mondor's disease" seen in pregnancy that is thrombophlebitis of the veins that drain the breasts. This is not, however your problem.
Not usually: Anything can happen but this isn't a common complaint.See 2 more doctor answers
