Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

this small lump could be from a plugged duct in the nipple

Dr. David :

but any male breast or nipple lump needs to be checked with a ultrasound

Dr. David :

men can still get breast cancer

for every 100 women with breast cancer, there is one male breast cancer.
