I'm a Male-31yrs old.. for around few months, I'm noticing a swelling in my areola, in my right breast[pecs]... its only the areola, that at times swells up & shrinks..If , I press a little hard on my Nipple on the swollen side, I get a sharp Pain... My other side [Left] is normal [No pain, no swelling]..
I've consulted my general physician, I was given some anti-inflammatory drug & liniment, I did complete the course of medication.. But had no improvement... Now I'm advised to consult, an endocrinologist... It would be of great help, if anyone could know of such [similar] conditions.. What it could be [Hope not cancerous] ?
My niece is 17 years old and is very worried because she has some redness and swelling of her areola. She said it even looks bumpy (more so than the other areola). She also noticed some potential stains in her bra (on both sides), but is not sure if it is from discharge. She never noticed any nipple discharge. She is very upset and nervous that this could be breast cancer. We have no history of breast cancer in our family. My sister is going to make an appointment next week, but do you have any knowledge of this to share that might ease her mind? Any idea of what it could possibly be?
