Small lump under nipple

Hi I'm 14, and I discovered a small lump under my left nipple. When I touch it, the pain is like a bruise type of pain. Also my left nipple is like slightly bigger then my right one.

I'm scared it is breast cancer. I am a male, but males DO get breast cancer right? :(

That is true, males do develop breast cancer but at your age it would be most rare. Breast cancer isn't usually associated with pain. I would advise you to ck. with your Dr. about this as it could be an infection since you say the nipple is swollen. Don't be scared about breast cancer but please do ck. with your Dr., OK ??

Since this original discussion was from 2008 I doubt that "ScareDude" would be reading your comment but I will add this to the reply by "Zouzi". Your Mother is RIGHT .... I'm sure as you get older you will find that she is RIGHT about many things. This is something that is related to your "growing up" /  the hormone changes that are occurring at this time of your life.  Ask the Dr. OR the school Nurse the next time you have a chance.    Take care now and be sure to listen to your Mom ....
