So i've noticed this for a couple months now.. It hurts to touch my left nipple, not so much hurts, but it feels sore and kinda aches when I touch it or rub it. I also noticed that theres a lump behind the nipple. I can feel a lump behind my right nipple but its much smaller and doesnt hurt when I touch it.
Just wondering if it's something you go through in puberty or what but I just turned 18 so I figured I was more or less done with that..

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. These are normal hormonal flares and happens in adolescence . Its physiological gynecomastia and nothing to worry about.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
