    men: is it normal to have a lump behind each nipple?

    I was reading that a lump means gyno. But I have lumps not directly behind the nipple, lie if I just pinch a half inch of the nipple, but if I grab about 2 inches of skin I feel a lump behind each nipple. Is that normal for a guy?

    so if you pinch behind your nipple a couple inches under the skin, there's nothing?

    its normal...it happens to a lot of people and some dont even notice it...it happens when you hit puberty and it starts shrinking after you get a bit older...i asked the doctor when i was probably like 15 when i went in when i was sick because i was pretty freaked out about it

    do you still have them? mine haven't shrunk. I do remember asking the doc when I was a kid and they were sore, but I'm in my 30s and they're still there, not sore though.

    I have a lump and I have pretty big nips, but nothing too severe.

    If you worried about the size of your nips and manboobs, trying doing a lot of dips and incline presses and not too much focus on bench. It makes a better appearance when dealing with the mentioned body factors.

    When I was about 20 I was really bothered by feeling those so I got checked on a mamogram and it just came back as having gyno. Feels bad though. Just have to live with it.

    It depends how old you are. It can happen to guys when the hit puberty but in time it almost always goes away. If you're in your late teens/early 20's or older, then you might want to get it checked out.

    K thanks. Damn, finally found the correct terminology for this disease. I officially have gynecomastia. My dad and brothers have it too. This sucks.

    I guess it is gyno and the lumps are glandular tissue. My pecs don't look bad and I don't have that puffy nipple look. I'm cutting, so I guess I'll find out soon if the lumps will be noticeable on a lean chest.

    Yes, all mammals (both male and female) have breast gland by definition. Feeling this tissue behind the nipple does not define "gyno". "Gyno", short for Gynecomastia, is a contour problem: a female like breast contour on the male chest. Even the subtle Anatomy of Puffy Nipple Gynecomastia will consist of gland, fat, and skin. The skin can be a significant factor after major weight loss. Feeling some firmer tissues alone does not make for gynecomastia unless there is a contour problem.

    Hope this helps,

    well i have struggled with gyno my whole life. i did the whole teeshirt at the beach thing and all, i fave found that certain exercises build your chest in a manner that virtualy masks this. if it is gyno try, incline bench with a super wide grip, low rows (i mean monster weight), Pull downs, and swimming. i have come to notice that with a serious set of lats it pull the skin making it all less noticeable.
    i wish................................ i had some form of a metabolism

The skin can be a significant factor after major weight loss. Feeling some firmer tissues alone does not make for gynecomastia unless there is a contour problem.

    A lot of us bigger dudes end up with gyno because the massive fat mass we carry around likes to take our testosterone and aromatase it into estrogen. However, once that fat mass is reduced, your testosterone will have a greater effect on your body...the effect it should have had originally, and a lot of times the lumps will disappear on their own. I know from my own experience, because I had gyno myself which completely reversed itself once I lost down to 200.

    I am not sure what weight you started out at, but you could have your testosterone levels checked.
    Stop reading my sig phaggot.

    ok thanks, wanted someone else to check. I guess just some of us have glands lumping up there.

    KOC- i came down from 225, but wasn't very heavy most of my life and I think the lumps were there, based on me having them as a teen. Maybe when I got pudgy, they got bigger. I know I started getting several lipomas, little fatty lumps, mainly in my triceps and thighs.

    A lipoma can occur in the fat of the male chest. These tend to be more mobile than gland but also can feel firm.
