hi... my 7 year old son have a very swollen right nipple which if touch it hurts ..i am hoping that u could put my mind at ease ..as for the last 5 years i have suffered lumps in my right breast but my nipple has never swollen and lucky enough it has just been a gland but i am very worried for my son
My son has this as well and I am taking him to doctor's today. He is 6 and just getting his first 2 teeth in, so I'm not sure if it's hormonal. We eat an organic diet and he does eat tofu so not sure if this is doing something. What happened with your son?
Hi, Did this ever go away. My son is also 6 and just lost his 2 bottom teeth and also has a swollen right nipple. Doctor said to return in 6 weeks and if still there we can do a blood test to check his hormone levels? This is the first site I've found that has boys around this age with swollen breast/nipple.
