I am the dad of a 13 year old boy. He is now beginning to show signs of puberty....pubic and underarm hair. However, I have some concern on this one area, the nipples. He has discovered a small lump which seems to feel like a mass of soft tissue right behind the left nipple. He has some tenderness there however no pain. He has been touching it alot wondering what it is, to the point there is a small amount of secretion relieved when he did this.I asked if the secretion was of any smell, thinking it was possibly a cyst, and he said he didnt think so.
I seem to have read somewhere that teens get this "lump" at the nipples, but cant seem to find any information on that here online to verify what I think I have heard.
I would appreciate any information on this, Iam not sure if it is just teen developement or something to be concerned with.
Thank you for your anticipated help on this very concerned issue. I wait for your reply.
