Mumsnetters aren't necessarily qualified to help if your child is unwell. If you have any serious medical concerns, we would urge you to consult your GP.

Just some quick advice so my mind doesn't race.

13 year old DS has just come to me complaining that his nipple is painful.

I've had a feel and there is a mass underneath it and not under his other one.
Is this normal for a boy going through puberty?

I don't know what to think and I don't want to worry him. Should I take him to the Dr on Monday.

I've had a tumour before myself in a different part of the body so I'm obviously a little anxious.

It could be a cyst ? My dp has one in his chest it's like a small hard lump, go to the GP and have it checked out.

Well done for your ds showing you ! Boys are notorious for not saying a sausage

It is normal for boys to get some of the same breast development girls do, though to a lesser degree, and they don't always develop at the same rate. I'd still take him though just to be sure. They can check if it feels normal.

Ah fantastic thank you, you have both made me feel better.

It is just DS and I so very close and he pretty much tells me everything (except who the girl he likes is only because he knows I'll have snoop on Facebook grin)

That's nice I hope that my ds feels he can tell me things when he's 13 too !
