I am a 15 year old male and i have noticed a very hard lump right below my right nipple. I am concerned that it could be male breast cancer

Guys can definitely have breast cancer, although it is lots less common in males than in females. Most likely you just have some breast swelling due to hormonal changes of adolescence. But you have to be a little more concerned when only one breast is involved than when you have the same change in both breasts. When I was in my early twenties I noticed that if I pressed my right nipple between my fingers little drops of clear fluid appeared on the tip. I couldn't get anything out of the other nipple. A surgeon said that I might have a premalignant growth in my right nipple and he removed my right breast as a precaution. You should have it checked out.
