Well guys, I"m going to get checked out by a doctor for male breast cancer. I have a small lump under my left nipple (which may just be gyno from puberty) and chances are that I don't have it since the average age of males with breast cancer is 65 or older. I don't seem to have any of the other symptoms like a bloody discharge (eww) so I think I"m okay But, I am skeptical of this lump under my chest and I'm going to get it checked out. I'm asking for your prayers guys. Keep me in your prayers.
Thought I would mention this to so you guys keep aware that breast cancer is a possibility for men, so always keep an eye out for any lumps under the nipple. Finding it quickly is the key to survival.

tru dat pimpin. when my health teacher made us do projects before the end of the semester, someone did breast cancer. then she brought up that males can get it also.

will do, and whatever you do, dont get hit in the chest constantly. all my girl friends tell my thats one of the easiest ways to get it, or make it worse.

Good luck Fred, keep us informed. Unless you have an extensive family history of breast cancer the chances are very unlikely that you have it, I hope those are encouraging words.

dont worry too much, me and my friend both had that. my friedn went to the docter for it and the docter said it would just go away.
Does it feel like a bb under there?

one of my best friends had his removed when he was young (10-12yrs maybe earlier). he had "gynochlomastia" (sp?) in both breasts/pecks/nipples. he is perfectly fine to this day (28yrs old).

although i think "gynochlomatia" may be a little different... i'm not quite educated in that area.

hope everything turns out for the best.

Thanks guys. Actually, all of this is encouraging. NO one in my whole family has ever had male breast cancer. Let alone, no females have ever had breast cancer. I'm about 98% sure that I don't, but I don't want to just ignore it. I also need to get my dislocated jaw checked out, so Friday will tell the truth. Thanks for all the encouraging words guys, it means a lot.

No, it's a bit bigger then a bb, it's hard to describe. Feels like muscle but not just part of my chest. It may be nothing as my girlfriend and my brother in law couldn't feel what I described.

In high school, my friends and I were playing bball and my friend passed the ball, he missed it and it busted me in the jaw hard. I couldn't eat or open my mouth hardly, for three days. This is when I'm guessing it got dislocated.

Don't fear just yet...I have something similar, about the size of a peanut. Went to the doctor and it turned out to be a calcium deposit.

Yeah, it's about the size of a peanut to be honest. Thanks guys, making me feel better already :)

Fred,

had the same thing on my back. Just an odd fat deposit. They told me I can get rid of it if I wanted, but it was not harming anything. Now I just keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't get any bigger.

You will be fine!

LOL, yeah it's possible. Chances of males getting it are very low but there's always that chance.
