I have pain above around and below left nipple. I am male 48. I have been to the doctor twice who advises no rash lump or discharge. it is very painful and has been for 3 weeks, should I be worried?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?

No lump just the area painful.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. my mother has MS no other conditions in the family.

Is it constant or does it come and go?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
constant
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

If it has been constant then you definitely should get imaging of that area, we often do a mammogram for men or an MRI.

do you think there is a serious problem?
could it be nothing much
?
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

I doubt it's anything serious, it could be a persistent muscle spasm or inflammation of the cartilage but I would still get it worked up to make sure we're not missing anything.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
