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.

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. ...Read more

Is there a way to condition nipples for breast-feeding?

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. ...Read more

I am male and my breasts feel like it hard around my nipple and is very sensitive in one of them.

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. ...Read more

Could you tell me if males do not breast feed, then why in the world do they have nipples?

Could you tell me if males do not breast feed, then why in the world do they have nipples?

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
