Doctor: Thank you for your question. Your enlarged nipples area is likely due to hormonal changes associated with puberty. This will probably persist until you are around 18 years old when you have completed puberty and testosterone levels start to level of. Please continue to follow a healthy diet and exercise routine to prevent maintain physical fitness and reduced body fat. This will eventually go away, with some time.Thank you for consulting AskTheDoctor.com
