What is the size of the lump?

Is it movable or is stuck to skin or underlying tissue?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
it is under the skin
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 10 months ago

This is likely to be a neurofibroma is tender because of partly made of nerve.

This needs surgical removal / excision. A biopsy should be sent to rule out male breast cancer, which though is rare but for precaution should be ruled out.

An MRI may be done before the surgery.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

This is likely to be a neurofibroma.

You may get an MRI for the confirmation.

This would need surgical removal / excision.

A biopsy of the specimen should be sent for the confirmation of the diagnosis and ruling out male breast cancer; which though is rare, but an utmost precaution should be taken for completely ruling it out.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
