Lump under nipple?


A few days ago, I located a hard, round lump about the size of a pea on my breast. It is located on my right breast, just under the edge of my areola, sorry if that is misspelled, and it's kind of painful when I push on it. It has a distinct round shape, and I can pretty much grab onto it (I hope that makes sense). I was just wondering if you can get lumps under your nipple in this area, and if so, is it something to worry about? I've waited a few days to see if it was an enlarged gland or something, but it has not gone away. Also, I don't know if this makes a difference or not, but, I'm only 25, my mother had a breast cancer scare once, and I'm bipolar and on meds for that.
Thanks in advance for any information that you can offer.

Re: Lump under nipple?

I basically have the same thing going on myself and have questions. I have multiple lumps under both my left and right breast that are about pea sized. They don't hurt but are kind of tender if I touch them. I'm a male, btw, and 26 years old. I know sometimes medications can cause weird things to happen and when I was a kid I was on synthetic growth hormone. I also take an anti-depressant and have anxiety so I tend to freak out over this kind of thing. I don't want to be a hypochondriac but I am wondering about this.

Go to the doctor and both of you get it checked out, now. It may be nothing but you have to go. It's that simple
