Lump under nipple

I am a 14 year old male. I used to have two tender lumps under both of my nipples. the one under my right nipple has gone but there still is one under my left nipple. Is this normal or should I be worried about cancer?

Hi. It's normal for males your age to have tender lumps under the nipples.  Those are breast buds, and are a result of a sudden increase in sex hormone levels in your blood.  This is part of normal pubertal development and is nothing to worry about.  Besides, breast cancer is rare in males, and rarer still in males your age. So I wouldn't consider cancer in your case.
