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.

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.
