Hi Doc. My husband has a small lump underneath his left nipple. Has been there for two weeks now and is a bit painful when he presses on it. What can this be? Thanks.

The lump can be due to injury and secondary inflammation of the soft tissue underneath the nipple. Men can also develop breast cancer and it is therefore, recommended that he consults a doctor for an examination.
