|Hey guys, im a fourth year medical student who was just passing by the site looking around. But I was a little concerned about some of the posts I saw and thought I could give some advice.
First thing, just because someone else's lump went away, doesnt mean yours will, and in no way does it mean you two have the same problem.
Any male with a lump under his nipple, has a pathology called gynecomastia. It's def. Is an embarrassing disease, it is usually associated with larger feminine looking breasts in men. If any of the people with the lumps are over weight, then the lumps are due to a decrease in breakdown or increase in production of a hormone found in women called estrogen. Other problems are associated with steroid abuse, or dif. Medications, and most are just (benign) not a big deal, and can only be removed by surgery if they don't go away alone by themselves.
Lumps or feminine shaped breasts are found pretty commonly in men, and usually there is nothing to worry about. The fact that one of the poster's lumps produces discharge is a little more "interesting". And the poster should take an appointment to have the lumps looked at under ultrasound or xray. I think youre too young for anything serious to be the problem, but its always good to be on the safe side.
I hope I was some help to anyone...And even though I think these postings are a good idea, I dont suggest anyone taking advice from anyone who is not a professional.
Let me know if you need anyting else
