I'am a 16 year old boy and i have a sore lump under my left nipple. What could that mean? Im worried.

While it could just be a cyst or something, it might be a good idea to let your parents know, so they can make you an appointment with your doctor. It's not all that common, but guys can get breast cancer as well, so better to get it checked just in case.

Wait. I got slapped in the nipple maybe a month ago. But i mean wouldnt that be a long time to stay sore?

Still be worth it to get it checked out. A month ago, shouldn't still be hurting now, nor would it still be swollen.

Might just be a pimple. The pores are large around the nipple and can get blocked.

Wash the area with alcohol a few times. It might clean the pores. A friend had the same problems and eventually had to have excess tissue removed. W go through a fuinny time in puberty and our bodies produce many, maybe too many, hormones,...thus acne etc.

A tumor might be blocking it.
