Lump under nipple a lot bigger than before
« on: June 30, 2011, 09:09:24 PM »
I have had gynecomastia since the 6th grade, I am now in the ninth grade. When I first got it, it was small, like pea sized and very unnoticeable. after about a year, I don't know why I thought it would be a good idea, but I squeezed it as hard as I could. I know this was a very foolish thing to do now. It is now about three times bigger, and very noticeable and my nipple is very puffy. I'm not sure if that is normal in gynecomastia, or if it is because I squeezed it. it is about 3 inches long in width and 1 in height. I think I might have damaged it so it won't go away. please help, is it worth waiting it out or should I do something about it? please help!!

I'm not sure if your "pea" grew as a result of your squeezing, or if it grew as a result of the hormonal fluctuations of adolescence, but if you have a mass that now measures 3 x 1 inches, you should at least have your doctor evaluate it. That's a pretty big mass.  You may still want to continue to watch it, but you should certainly have it looked at.
