Thank you for your question. Enlarged nipples and breast tissue in males is associated with hormonal changes associated with puberty. This is perhaps what is causing your symptoms. We would like you to ere on the side of caution and have this examined by your doctor in order to rule out any serious pathology. Male breast cancer can only be confirmed by surgical biopsy. Please see your doctor.
