I was working out around 2 or 3 years ago and the dumbell

This answer was rated:

I was working out around 2 or 3 years ago and the dumbell that I was lifting hit off my left nipple and it bruised for a week or two, but ever since, it's very sensitive, I mean the slightest impact makes it sore for a couple of days and it turns red, it's at left breast, left side of nipple exactly. Is this because I weakened the tissue from the original trauma? I'm a male and I'm age 30.

The scar formation (which is a weaker tissue) entrap the nerve occasionally and even a trivial injury can cause sensitivity and redness.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.

Your my favourite doctor. Thank you for the details of understanding. So this is completely normal and it will probably never go away since I traumatised it?? And this is nothing to be concerned about??

Thank you.

There is nothing to be concerned about.

This is a normal and frequently seen phenomenon.

This may resolve on its own in 50-70% of people very slowly in years/decade

It's been 3 years. I'm fine living with it as long as I know it's harmless? I even felt my breasts and I feel strands of muscle of both breasts at nipple. So it's normal after traumatising it and I don't need to be concerned?

It's normal after traumatizing it and I don't need to be concerned.
