13 year old boy with lump under right nipple

Hello,

The lump under the nipple can be due to gynecomastia or breast enlargement of puberty.

This can occur in boys at the start of puberty due to hormonal changes.

There can be enlargement of both or one breast.

Usually it goes away of its own .

However he should consult doctor to get it tested.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
