Male breast pain and lump


i have schizophrenia and have recently started taking medication again after stopping for a few months. The doctor pescribed me 1mg risperidone and i have taken it for about 1 month. But for the past week i have had pain in my right breast ( i am a male thats a little overweight). The issueright now is very complex. I have right breast pain specifically near the nipple area but my main concern is i have a lump there. According to my knowledge i've always had this lump underneath and near my nipple for as long as i can remember. maybe 7-8 years. i always thought it was normal just being there near the nipple. Now the problem is, i have a little bit of pain there when i touch my right nipple region where the lump is at. i went to get a ultrasound and mammogram today and will have the results back in 3-4 days to see if there is anything cancerous. Can this really be breast cancer for me as a male or could it be something else thats not serious like a cyst?

Re: Male breast pain and lump

Unfortunately, men do get breast cancer....until you have the tests there is no way to know for sure. There is also a chance that it is a benign cyst, or a complex cyst, which can be drained and will rid you of the pain.

I hope it is nothing...please come back and let us know!

Best to you!!!

Men can also get breast cancer. You have done the wise thing by seeing your provider and getting testing done.
