    I'm an 18 year old healthy male, exercise regularly and have a fairly balanced diet. A couple of weeks ago, a lump formed behind my left nipple and it was quite tender to touch, now it has grown in size (around the diameter of a 1p coin). What is it? And my right nipple is fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    I had something like this- behind my right. No idea what it was, it went soon after. Came back a few months later, then went again. Have had no problems since then.

    It's a reasonably common thing, usually due to hormones in your body during your teens. It's nothing to worry about, they usually go away in a couple of months

    I'd recommend seeing your GP as soon as possible, it can't do any harm.
