Question Male with nipple problem

I am a 22 year old male and have had a problem with my right nipple for a long time. The outside areola is just fine but half way to the center is different. First off it is a different color. Its is substantially darker almost is if it were bruised. Also when it gets swollen it stick out a whole lot more. It is also alot bigger than my left nipple about five times larger. Then there is a crack around the tip. The tip itself is white like a pimple. There is no discharge however. When it is not swollen the dark circle is still there and the tip is not white. On the side there are bumps thats are also white but have no discharge. This is real embarrassing and any help with what it could be or what I could do about it would really help.

Re: Male with nipple problem

Actually I have. They looked at it with ultrasound and a monogram and saw nothing. They even did a biopsy and nothing came up. I was wondering if anyone here had any suggestions?
