Hello. I am a male of 21 years old. I felt several lumps in my left breast last 2 weeks ago. 1 on the areola or the darked circle and 2 outside it. The first week i felt pain in my breast but after a week the pain is lessen. The oncologist i have consulted did not bother to feel the lumps and ordered me to have an ultrasound and said result had no lumps seen. So i have consulted to a surgeon who feel the lumps and requested me again for an ultrasound. Should i also do a mammogram test? If the result of the U/S and mammogram is negative can i go for a biopsy? I am very worried right now because of my age and situation. Please i do need help.

You most likely have gynecomastia, but stay in the care of your healthcare providers to ensure this is the case. Post here if you have further concerns.

Gynaecomastia can present as several lumps. Rarely will breast cancer appear like this.

thanks. The result give somewhat a relief. I have undergone a hormone test yesterday. Are there any signs that if gynaecomastia had been diagnosed may lead to BC?. Or do you have any idea or people to consult what are the best possible treatment for gynae? Thanks a lot brother

Not really any connection between gynecomastia and bc, so relax on that front. Don't have any experience with it. Often it's a weight issue. Best ask your doc.

Very few young men reporting here with lumps have breast cancer. Perhaps one a year. The average age is 67.

hello there. Back here again for the reason that my left breast is now again in pain and now it also affect the back part. I noticed that there is a swollen lump i guess in my armpit. It is not visible but it is palpable. Can i ask if you have also swollen lymph nodes by the time you are diagnosed? Did you experienced breast pain?

Yes I had swollen lymph nodes on diagnosis. I had breast pain because my bc had developed into Inflammatory Breast Cancer. You should revisit your doctor I'd suggest.
